The Panda team visited the Focus Ireland Head Office in Christchurch, Dublin to present Focus Ireland with their first cheque based on the volume of plastic collected during the first month of the #FocusOnRecycling initiative in June 2019.
Earlier this year, Irish packaging recycling scheme, Repak, and leading waste operator, Panda, commenced a new joint initiative to support Focus Ireland in its efforts to assist families, young people and children at risk or affected by homelessness.
The initiative, aimed at all commercial businesses in Dublin’s city centre, encourages offices, shops, restaurants, bars, hotels and supermarkets to collect their plastic recyclables in specially commissioned recycling bags. The bags, are provided at no cost, and are collected when full. In return, Repak and Panda Greenstar will donate to Focus Ireland based on the volume collected. The initiative, which will run for six months, aims to raise much needed funds for Focus Ireland in its work to combat and prevent homelessness.
Businesses in Dublin city centre can feel assured that by pledging their support to the initiative, they are not only playing their part to recycle more and protect Ireland’s environment for future generations, but they are also providing invaluable support to those in need.
