Ecology: World Without Waste Campaign Collects 7.7 Tons Of PET

Must Read

The second edition of the ‘World Without Waste’ campaign that started in December 2022 ended in April 2023. More than 7.7 tons of PET (PolyEthylene Terephthalate) were collected during the eight campaign sessions in various regions of the island. More than 27,000 people were reached during the activities.

The Coca-Cola team and PhoenixEarth Initiative in collaboration with the NGOs Yes No Solutions, New Invaders Club, We-Recycle Mauritius, Mission Verte and Freedom Plastic visited several regions of the island. The objective was to raise awareness among Mauritians on the pollution caused by the use of plastic, especially PET bottles. The emphasis was also put on the use of sorting garbage cans, in order to promote recycling.

World Without Waste Campaign Collects 7.7 Tons Of PET

This second edition allowed the collection of 7.7 tons of PET bottles over a period of 4 months.

For Dr. Ayeshah Fauzee – Director of Public Affairs, Sustainability and Communications for the West, Islands and Mid-Africa franchise at Coca-Cola was a great success: “With the success of the first edition of the ‘World Without Waste – Mo Enn Consom-Akter Responsab, Mo Konsian – Mo Pran Kont’ campaign where we collected 7.7 tons of PET and sensitized more than 65,000 people, this 2nd edition has proven to be more challenging. This initiative allows us to activate more on our ‘World Without Waste’ campaign but also to make Mauritians aware of their civic and human duties towards the environment we live with every day. This is a simple thing that each of us must inculcate in our daily lives in order to contribute to a healthier environment, to live and to support in the economy of tomorrow.
