Our children hold more wisdom than we can imagine, especially when it comes to protecting the environment. Children across the country have therefore embraced the importance of recycling used plastic packaging.
The ‘Return The Favour, Recycle Your Plastics’ campaign demonstrated this last year, with a group of young recycling ambassadors taking over social media to share important messages about recycling at home.
This year, these same ambassadors are encouraging you to take the work out of recycling, by recycling at work.
Polyco is launching a campaign extension with the goal of encouraging South Africans to recycle at work.
“Let’s listen to our children when they ask us to recycle or do something to live more sustainably,” says Patricia Pillay, Chief Executive Officer at Polyco.
“Last year these fun, informative video messages received an impressive response with thousands of South Africans seeing how easy it is to recycle their plastic packaging at home. We want momentum to continue, and we want more videos to laugh at on social media, so we’ve created new videos that highlight how easy it is to take the work out of recycling, by recycling at work.”
“We want to encourage you to make the commitment to establish a recycling system at your place of work. You will be surprised at how easy it is and how quickly your colleagues will adopt the habit,” says Pillay.
Through Million Plus, Polyco aims to get more than one million South Africans to join the plastic recycling movement by committing to recycling. They hope to make recycling the normal thing for every South African by educating South Africans about the importance of recycling in improving environmental well-being and contributing to economic growth.
Recycling your plastic is one way that you can positively contribute to a better South Africa.
