Plastic is not bad.
How you dispose plastic is bad.

Plastic is one of the most versatile material invented by humans. So many things in our life have become easy & convenient because of the use of plastics. Not only this, it has an outstanding ability to be recycled. Contrary to this, there are myths around plastic being bad and causing negative impact on the environment by getting into rivers, oceans and landfills. However, in reality, plastic is not a problem. The problem is of irresponsible human behavior in disposing the plastic. If disposed sensibly, it can actually do well to the environment. If recycled, plastic can be made to form recycled polyester which in turn is made to produce a number of things like shoes, T-shirts, bags, etc. thereby causing less strain on natural resources.

Being the leader in the mineral water category in the country, we make conscious effort towards correct disposal and recycling of plastic bottles. In fact, we believe in going beyond the realms of our brand and accept plastic from all brands in the market.

Bottles for change

‘Bottles for Change’, an initiative by Bisleri International Pvt. Ltd., focuses to create awareness amongst all citizens about waste segregation, recycling of plastic bottles and best practices towards cleaner environment. As a part of the program, we conduct plastic recycling awareness and collection drives in schools, colleges, corporate offices, malls, festive & social gatherings, events, etc.

 

Bisleri has partnered with 3 Non-Governmental Organisations in Mumbai - Parisar Bhagini Vikas Sangh, Sampurna Earth and Garbage Concern Welfare Society. The plastic collected is crushed, sold to recyclers and then converted into flakes. These flakes are then used to create non-edible products such as cloth fabric, Hand bags, Window blinds and other useful products.
