These ‘Break Zone’ benches have been created in collaboration with Ricron Panels, an innovative plastic waste recycling company
Kitkat has launched a unique ‘Breaks for Good’ initiative under which it has installed benches made from recycled plastic packaging across popular youth hangouts and colleges in various cities pan-India.
These ‘Break Zone’ benches have been created in collaboration with Ricron Panels, an innovative plastic waste recycling company and one of the winners of the Global Nestlé Creating Shared Value Prize.
Speaking about the initiative, Rupali Rattan, Head of Confectionery Business, Nestlé India, added, “We wanted to bring alive the brand belief of Kitkat of breaks are good for you into our sustainability initiatives as well. By placing recycled break zones across youth hangouts, we want to communicate to the youth that these ‘break zones’ not only serve as a break for them but for the environment too. This initiative is the first step in our commitment and journey towards sustainability and we intend to keep having more conversations and actions around it.”
Rahul Chaudhary, Director of Ricron Panels, said, “As a leader in innovative plastic waste recycling, we are proud to be associated with Kitkat and use our expertise in making these recycled plastic benches. This collaboration shows how post-consumer plastic waste can be part of the circular economy when stakeholders work together across the entire value chain.”
The initiative is being supported with a digital campaign.
