Plastic Lao – Mask Pao!
Plastic waste is a massive problem in almost every city and country. But it is not so hard to collect it and recycle it! Join us as we kickstart Dehradun's first such exchange campaign, starting 3rd November.
We’re distributing 5000 reusable masks at our kiosks in exchange for plastic waste like multi-layered packaging (chips/biscuit packets), PET bottles, single-use poly bags, and other forms of plastic.
Your plastic will go to our Swachhta Kendra (Material Recovery Facility) near ISBT, where our hardworking Safai Saathis (waste workers) will safely segregate your plastic to be sent for recycling.
If you live near any of the colonies, apartments, or areas in the map below,
our team and kiosk will be near you soon.
