To reduce and recycle plastic waste, and bid farewell to the plastic menace, the HDFC Bank partnered Eco Spindles recently.
The programme will place plastic waste collection bins at selected HDFC Bank branches, where the bank’s customers can dispose any recyclable plastic waste such as empty PET water/ soft drink bottles, hand sanitiser/ hand wash bottles, empty plastic containers/boxes.
The ‘disposed plastic’ will then be separated and will undergo a recycling process that will result in the production of plastic – based raw materials such as bristles and yarn, ensuring customers are you disposing plastic waste in an environment-friendly manner but also are contributing towards recycling as a responsible citizen.
The inaugural ceremony and signing of the MoU were graced by the Chairman of HDFC Bank, Wasanthi Manchanayake, CEO, Palitha Gamage and Senior Management from Eco Spindles.
Commenting on the initiative, Dr. Anush Amarasinghe, MD/CEO, BPPL Holdings PLC said, “As Sri Lanka’s largest plastics’ recycler, we are extremely pleased to have signed an important MoU with HDFC supporting their initiative to promote environmental protection, delivering sustainable value to their customers as well as contributing to saving the planet.”
