Happy to be part of “Clean UAE"
The year 2022 is coming to an end. It had many positive results. The epidemic has abated. Social activities are back to pre-pandemic levels, and the economy is improving every day. There have been many scientific breakthroughs and a lot of eventful news has reached our ears.
However, despite all this, negative environmental news continues to be in the air. From unprecedented heat waves in Europe, floods in Asia, droughts in North America, and micro and nano-plastic pollution, our attention must also be shifted to mitigating these events so the occurrence of these human-caused disasters can be corrected. So, as we are now approaching the last quarter of the colder months of the year, we are happy to once again join EEG in the national effort to enhance, beautify and restore the country's ecosystems, because the best thing anyone can do for their country, city, community or family is to make it clean and free. from pollution, or doing it himself, or participating in organizations that carry out campaigns for cleaning and awareness of the danger of pollution, for example, if we talk exclusively about plastic and what it causes in our environment.
Plastic can seriously damage the environment, making it difficult to melt. One of the main impacts of plastic bags on the environment is that they take many years to decompose. Moreover, when plastic bags decompose under the sun, toxic substances are released into the soil, and if plastic bags are burned, toxic substances are released into the air.
The UAE is trying to reduce the use of plastic in order to preserve the environment. With the aim of promoting environmental sustainability and reducing plastic consumption, the Executive Council of the Emirate of Dubai has approved the policy of reducing single-use bags by imposing a tariff of 25 packages per bag from 1 July 2022. This represents an important step forward in recycling e-waste in the UAE United Arab Emirates, the country that has one of the largest e-waste recycling plants in the world.
Here at the company, we are honored to have the opportunity to participate this year in the cleaning activity, Emirate of Dubai, which was held on the 10th of December and on the 15th of December. in the city of Abu Dhabi.
It is an important step to eliminate the waste that litters cities and beaches. We all hope that everyone will take things seriously and it will be a clean world without pollution and waste.
Stay Positive, Stay Green
