Averda and Tadweer host “Let’s Sort Together for a Better Environment” event
Averda launched a three-day event to raise awareness of recycling and the importance of protecting the environment in Al Ain last week. The event, entitled "Let’s Sort Together for a Better Environment", was held in partnership with Tadweer (The Abu Dhabi Center of Waste Management), as well as the Al Ain Centre for Care and Rehabilitation, and Etihad Modern Art Gallery.
Averda’s Al Ain branch project manager, Mohammad Merashly, said, “These events are really important in helping to educate people, young and old, of the importance of looking after the environment and the world we live in. Our objective, in collaboration with Tadweer, is to encourage a joint sense of public responsibility to minimising waste, by increasing waste segregation at home and raising awareness of the benefits of recycling.”
The “Let’s Sort Together for a Better Environment” project was aimed at raising awareness of sustainable environmental practices, in order to encourage and promote recycling in Abu Dhabi. During the event at the Al Ain Mall, a number of programmes and activities were held, including interactive workshops, a competition to collect the biggest amount of recyclable waste, and a reading platform. The event ran from the 24th – 26th May.
Our mission is to create a cleaner world and better lives, and sustainability lies at the heart of this.
