A returning initiative is hoping to educate people about the importance of recycling plastics.
The Waste Free Environment Campaign, launched by the Gulf Petrochemical and Chemical Association (GPCA), will take place for the sixth time from 18th to 22nd February.
Aiming to shift perceptions on plastic usage and promote sustainable behaviour, the campaign will feature school visits, environmental clean-ups and a series of public awareness events.
“Over the years, Waste Free Environment has witnessed an overwhelming growth, having achieved global recognition as a truly GCC campaign,” said Dr Abdulwahab Al Sadoun, secretary general of GPCA.
“To address the real issue at stake, we need to look at educating the public in a way that puts an end to unmindful littering and incorrect disposal of plastic waste.”
