#BeatPlasticPollution: No more plastic cups in Brazil!

Today is World Environment Day! The United Nations (UN) state that approximately 300 million tons of plastic waste are produced every year and adversely affect our environment. Since every step counts to take action against this urgent problem, Sivantos Brazil has launched its ECO POINT campaign to raise awareness for the usage of plastics among its employees.

As plastic cups are non- biodegradable and mostly designed for single use, they are a main contributor to land and water pollution. Therefore, our office in Brazil handed out free glass bottles and reusable cups so that employees won’t have to purchase plastic bottles and – cups anymore.

As a UN Global Compact (UNGC) signatory, Sivantos also follows the ten principles of the UNGC, like Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility, to make our world a better place.

Step by step our impact is growing.
