The aim of the campaign is to create awareness and provide opportunities for people to collect recyclable materials in the environments where they spend their holidays. Whether you’re on the beach or in a town this holiday season, just take two minutes of your day to clean up around you, whether it is the beach or in a street.
The campaign will run from 15 December to 2 January and will be rolled out in the following towns: Swakopmund, Walvis Bay, Henties Bay, Oshakati, Ondangwa and Ongwediva.
Coca-Cola recognises that a healthy and growing business goes hand in hand with a healthy and sustainable community.
The company and all its bottling partners are leading the industry to help collect and recycle a bottle or can for every one sold by 2030. In its drive to clean up existing post-consumer waste, the company is bringing people together through programmes like beach and river clean-ups and other ongoing local activities.
To encourage more people to recycle more often, Coca-Cola is investing in projects to help people understand what to recycle, how to recycle, and where to recycle.
In Namibia, the company partnered with other stakeholders in the industry and founded the Namibia Beverage Container Alliance (NBCA) as a sub-committee of the Recycling Namibia Forum.
The mandate of the NBCA is to “assist in the return of every beverage container placed in the market place” and at the same time, also provides opportunities for other waste streams to be recovered.
