The youth arm of Rotary International, Rotaract Bahrain, and Elysian Water has announced their partnership in launching the nationwide initiative - ‘MAKE A DIFFERENCE’.
Through the initiative, Rotaract Bahrain will use recycling proceeds to purchase wheelchairs for The Bahrain Parents Foundation for the Disabled and are further exploring upcycling opportunities with partners to convert this plastic into clothes and other reusable material.
President of Rotaract Bahrain, Sanket Kothari, said: “We are excited about this initiative as we believe that collaborating with small and large companies to recycle large quantities of plastic in the Kingdom of Bahrain will enable each person to positively contribute towards the community.”
The association has now aligned and partnered with Elysian Water, whose headquarters are based in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, and have been avidly searching for an entity to recycle their plastic. This initiative is designed to collaborate with companies in Bahrain and the region to prevent the disposal of recyclable plastics.
