World Environment Day 2022 is the biggest international day for the environment. Led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and held annually since 1973, it has grown to be the largest global platform for environmental outreach. It is celebrated by millions of people across the world.
On the occasion of World Environment Day 2022, CREASION and Recycler Saathi hosted a one-of-a-kind event known as “Swap Your Plastics” that emphasizes the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling promoting the theme "Only One Earth".
The ceremony took place in Maharani Pokahari, Patan and the event was graced by Mr. Parakram Rana, Digital Content Creator for the event. The main goal of the event was to promote behavioral change and the adoption of healthy habits by utilizing the Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle concept, in which participants exchanged PET Bottles (Cold Beverages bottles /plastic bottles) in exchange for a plant where the PET Bottles would further be sent for recycling in our Recycling facility and reduce carbon emissions.
On the same day, our team at Chitwan planted around 60+ plants in the different waste smart schools of Sauraha and Bharatpur. Students and teachers of our waste smart schools came together to plant the little saplings and pledged to take care of them.
Our utmost gratitude to Chameli Devi Ma. Vi., Naughare, Bharatpur-3, Shree Ma. Bi. Chitrasari, Ratnanagar (Sauraha), Shree Bachhauli M. Vi., Ratnanagar (Sauraha) for coming together to celebrate with us.
