Tackling Plastic Pollution in Pakistan

WWF-Pakistan is one of the largest conservation organizations in Pakistan, working proactively against climate change and environmental degradation in the country. One major aspect of protecting the nation’s environment is curbing pollution, especially of non-biodegradable materials like plastic. 

250 million tons of garbage in Pakistan primarily consists of plastic bags, pet bottles and food scraps.

In order to reduce plastic pollution and encourage recycling, WWF-Pakistan is working in collaboration with The Coca-Cola Foundation on a month long campaign (12th October to 12th November) to raise awareness about the issue. We will be establishing a plastic recovery facility in three major commercial hubs of Lahore to encourage people to bring their plastic bottles to us for recycling. 

Our locations include:

  1. Packages Mall –12 October till 21 October, 2019
  2. Fortress Square Mall – 23 October till 1 November 2019
  3. Emporium Mall – 3 November till 12 November 2019

Recycling is rewarding!

Reusing and recycling are morally rewarding tasks in themselves because they contribute manifold to save the environment. However, WWF-Pakistan has decided to step up its rewards and give a chance to our eco-friendly participators to win numerous prizes as well. We have for you an assortment of discount vouchers, merchandise and opportunities to partake in lucky draws and spin the wheel activities. Prizes include items from high-end designers like Ali Xeeshan, Sania Maskatiya and Sapphire; discount vouchers from Arammish and Cinestar for all your entertainment and relaxation needs; and for the foodies out there we have incredible offers from Wild Wings, Jessie’s burgers and many more!

 

So hop on over to one of our three locations on the designated days with your plastic bottles and let the fun begin. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!
