From our corporate level, the TALKE Group launched a global campaign “Keep our Seas Free from Plastics” in 2016, where each employee pledged to reduce plastics wherever possible. Until today, we have more than 2,150 subscriptions to the program. With this program, we’ve distributed recyclable tote bags for shopping, with a reminding artwork to uphold the goal of the campaign.
In 2018, RSA-TALKE also launched a “Say No to Plastics” campaign which aimed at getting rid of all plastic water bottles in our four facilities. Till date, the company has gotten rid of 95% of plastic water bottles. Early this year, the company yet again, launched its “Change Masters” campaign which revolves around recycling, reducing and reusing of materials throughout 2019 and beyond. Furthermore, there are great initiatives by the industry associations such as Operation Clean Sweep®, Waste Free Environmental Day by GPCA and many more.
We all (corporate/individuals) have an obligation to protect the planet by reducing plastic waste. It will be great to hear how you are tackling the global pandemic of plastic pollution and your contributions (individual/corporate) to making the change for a greener planet.
