Summer Somewhere X ReCircle
Summer Somewhere has been a plastic-free label since the get-go. We are taking our commitment to being plastic-positive one step further by associating with ReCircle. Our pledge is to recover 2,500 kilos of low-grade single-use plastic from landfills and oceans this year.
How will we do this?
With your help. In association with ReCircle, we will recover 1kg (equal to 40 one litre bottles) for every order placed with us.
Together, we can truly make a difference.
How are we creating an impact?
The Plastic offset initiative by ReCircle allows brands like ours, who do not use any plastic in their supply or value chain, to offset a particular amount of plastic discarded in the environment by other sources. We at Summer Somewhere are taking the sustainable initiative to offset without having anything to compensate for. Along with environmental impact, this initiative will also impact social and economic dimensions of waste management in India.
How it works?
Collection: Low-value, multi-layered packaging (MLP) plastic waste is collected from informal waste workers, landfills and dumping grounds, and waste generators like households, offices and institutions.
Pre-processing: This collected plastic is brought to a segregation facility to further sort and cleaned, if need be. Then, it is pre-processed by baling or shredding.
Processing: The pre-processed plastic waste is dispatched for final processing to relevant processors. It is used as raw material for conversion to energy, road-making or other alternative applications like recycling.
