Garnier has set up a dedicated plastic waste collection centre in the city as part of its commitment to the environment.
What’s it about? One of the world’s largest beauty brands has established the collection centre in partnership with Plastics for Change. The goal is to collect 2,000 tonnes of ocean-bound plastic. Since 2020, the company has worked with Plastics for Change to collect and recycle more than 500 tonnes of plastic and helped informal waste collectors, entrepreneurs, and their families.
- Plastic collection kiosks will be set up at 20 locations in Mumbai, Delhi, and Chennai. They’ve also partnered with Amazon and Myntra by recycling two plastic bottles for every Garnier purchase.
- In the first year, the centre will help empower 2,000 people from local communities. Plastic collected has been used in the packaging of products.
Who said what? Adrien Koskas from Garnier said the company is uniquely positioned to positively impact the planet. The company wants to change how the beauty sector operates, and the new centre is a step to achieving that.
- Andrew Almack of Plastics for Change said recycling supply chains are the basis of the circular economy. Their goal is to collect a million waste collectors through fair-trade supply chains.
