Hand Care Foundation, in association with Enactus Chapter at The NorthCap University, has installed a plastic bottle recycling machine in the University campus near Cafeteria. The used PET bottles can be recycled through this machine and can be converted into T-shirts, bag packs, caps etc.
About 12 PET bottles can be recycled to produce a T-shirt. Using the machine not only encourages recycling, but also helps in reducing littering and maintaining a clean environment. The collected waste is recycled or reused as per the legal and environment norms. Recycling of all kinds of packaging waste (such as PET, plastics, paper etc.) and marketing / promotion of recycled products ensures a greener and safer environment for the present and future generations.
