Azure Pure Water is offering its customers a recycling solution for its Vanuatu Natural Bottles.
This was done after six months of extensive research and consultation with waste management specialists.
The Chief Executive Officer of Azure Pure Water, Mr Shaun Gilchrist said in a media statement that for a long time the company has recognized that waste management and plastic bottle disposal in Vanuatu is a challenge.
“And we recognized our responsibility as a manufacturer in Vanuatu to be providing viable and sustainable solutions for the management of the waste we produce so as to keep our country clean,” he said.
According to the statement, Mr Gilchrist said that these bottles will be stripped down into their individual plastic components and each type of plastic will be baled, compressed, and stored until enough volume is accumulated to enable shipping to Australia for recycling.
“We anticipate that we will be able to send our first shipment following the Pacific Mini Games in December this year,” he said.
Mr Gilchrist encouraged everyone to take part in their ‘Give me 5’ program and ‘help Vanuatu to become a country which manages responsibly and sustainably.’
