Campaign: Recycling

Tetra Pak Hellas has been supporting recycling initiatives in schools in Greece, ranging from workshops to collection points, all to raise awareness and improve the rate of recycling in the country.

In Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-largest city, Eco Greece and Tetra Pak Hellas, have distributed recycling bins to 80 schools in the municipality. This, together with a series of recycling workshops, has helped raise the rate of recycling in the city four-fold.

The Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature in Greece, supported by Tetra Pak Hellas, has been helping schools develop initiatives to encourage their local communities to recycle more. The organization also arranges visits to recycling centers and has held seminars for teachers, demonstrating ways to raise awareness of recycling with their pupils. Since the program’s launch in 2015, Tetra Pak Hellas has worked with more than 100 schools throughout Greece.
