Students from Asian International School recently came onboard Coca-Cola Sri Lanka’s ‘Give Back Life’ project by volunteering to bring all PET plastic packaging to school for recycling.

This initiative by the students from the Asian International School was inaugurated during their Sinhala and Tamil New Year school assembly and ensuing festivities, where the ‘Give Back Life’ initiative was given prominence to inculcate the habit of recycling amongst all students, teachers and management of the school.

Buoyed by the overwhelming response by the students to be part of this initiative and to ensure its long-term sustainability, Coca-Cola proudly connected their  ‘Give Back Life’ program with the Asian International school to not only collect all PET plastic within the school premises but also the critical recovery of household PET plastic.

Commenting on the initiative,Harshana D. Perera Principal, Asian International School, said, “I am proud to see how the students in the school have taken it upon themselves to carry out and promote PET plastic collection and recycling.”

“Committed to deliver a future ’World Without Waste’, Coca-Cola in Sri Lanka is encouraging all to ‘recover and recycle’ PET plastic. Sri Lanka’s youth is showing commitment and pride in conserving the flora and fauna of the country and Coca-Cola’s ‘Give Back Life’ project further entrenches environmental consciousness amongst the future leaders of our nation.

In recent months, Coca-Cola Beverages Sri Lanka Ltd. has been ramping up its ‘Give Back Life’ project to make a deeper and wider impact on society by joining hands with key partners to instil the habit of recovering and recycling PET plastic.
