Volunteers removed and properly disposed of over 20 bags of waste found in the environment.

Through clean up initiatives and other activities, Nestlé aims to play an active role in changing behaviour and raising public awareness about reducing plastic waste and recycling more.

Nestlé General Manager Fiji and Pacific Islands, Timothy Inkster, said this is an opportunity to spark change from the inside out, and remind employees of the importance of recycling right and disposing of waste correctly.

“We’re committed to leading lasting and impactful change to tackle the waste pollution challenge. Our Clean Up Day has reminded us that often it is the small steps we take every day that can make a lasting impact.

“Our goal for Clean Up Day was simple: to leave our local community cleaner than we found it. And we did! A big thanks to the Nestlé volunteers who together removed 20 bags of rubbish from the environment.

“We were excited to head outdoors and get together as a team to inspire action in our community. This is just one way we are supporting the community and progressing our mission to achieve a future in which none of our packaging ends up in landfill or as litter.”

Nestlé has announced a series of specific actions to meet its commitment to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.

Along with driving behaviour change to ensure everyone knows how to dispose of waste correctly, Nestlé is committed to creating a future where cleverly designed packaging, innovative new materials, better recycling infrastructure and reusable or refillable packaging can prevent waste from entering the land and oceans in the first instance.

World Clean Up Day unites countries, communities and volunteers across the world for clean-up exercises, promoting the need for proper management of waste and raising global awareness and action for a cleaner planet.

Around the region, approximately 450 Nestlé volunteers across four countries cleaned up their local parks, reserves and waterways.
