Packages Limited, being a member of CoRe (Collect and recycle), participated in an initiative to install 250 waste-bins in Islamabad in partnership with Capital Development Authority. As part of this joint initiative, Fatima Jinnah Park and Lake View Park will each see installation of 125 waste bins, that will encourage citizens to dispose waste more responsibly and improve circular economy. The waste bins will facilitate the collection of waste responsibly to keep the environment in these parks clean and green.
Other contributors for the waste-bin project include other CoRe members Coca-Cola, Ecolean, FrieslandCampina, METRO, Nestlé, Novatex, PepsiCo, SPEL and Unilever.
Core is the first ever alliance of leading consumer goods & packaging companies, recyclers and non-governmental organizations in Pakistan formed with the mission to eliminate packaging waste by enabling formal collection & recycling and envisions to create a circular economy by reducing packaging footprint through sustainable and innovative practices.
