CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

THE ENVIRONMENT

Tons of good quality, re•usable materials get wasted daily. If these are not recycled, they end up occupying the already depleting landfill space and steadily degrade. adding to the levels of greenhouse gases In the air we breathe. By recycling, we reduce the carbon footprint in the atmosphere.

THE ECONOMY

The collection, sorting and processing of recyclables plays a vital role in formal and informal job creation. An informal collector could start the day without a cent in his pocket and by the end of the day have enough money for an evening meal for his family.

THE WORLD AROUND US

Recycled paper fibre Is an important raw material in the production of packaging and tissue products. Some 65% of the country's paper mills depend on recycled fibre and a number of them use it as their only fibre source.
