The Kingdom of Bahrain's initiative is to phase out single-use plastic products. In support of this and to raise awareness, Batelco's CSR team 'Nasna' recently distributed reusable bags to the public at Wadi Al Sail mall in the Riffa region of the country.
Due to supermarkets and shopping malls being among the biggest contributors towards the country's consumption of plastic, 'Nasna' took it upon themselves to be part of the solution. Increased plastic usage ultimately impacts marine life as well the environment negatively thus the CSR team's intention with this was to encourage consumers to covert to using more eco-friendly alternatives.
This initiative by Batelco is set to focus on decreasing the consumption of one-time use plastics both internally and externally. The step is in line with the global environmental awareness trends and the national initiative launched by the Supreme Council for Environment.
Through its 'Nasna' program, Batelco strives to support environmental initiatives that contribute towards maintaining sustainability. This step also shows the company's commitment towards community service.
