“Saahas and Tetra Pak began working together in 2008, both partners were determined to bring about awareness-among citizens of Bangalore-on the fact that Tetra Pak cartons can be recycled. Through its own staff and army of volunteers, Saahas has painstakingly laid what looks like the beginning of a strong foundation in getting people to act responsibly – by placing empty cartons into a separate bin for eventual recycling. Saahas’s approach has been to create awareness first amongst a select number of schools, institutes and colleges, corporations and commercial complexes, and parlours, parks and residential complexes and then to spread awareness among the waste paper trade community – so that there is a parallel push and pull created.”
