Globe Telecom Announces Ban on Single-Use Plastics at its Headquarters

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Globe Telecom- the major provider of telecommunications services in the Philippines joined the fight against plastic pollution, by implementing complete ban on use of single-use plastics at its headquarters at The Globe Tower in Bonifacio Global City.

The initiative was launched in connection with the celebration of the Zero-Waste month campaign launched by the government. Alongside, the company has also announced an employee awareness and education campaign titled WASSUP (‘Wag Sa Single Use Plastic) which aims to tackle plastic waste pollution by educating employees on the impacts caused by single-use plastics on environment.

This is the latest in the series of environment-friendly initiatives launched by the company. The company has already introduced innovative programs including paperless billing to its customers. Globe Telecom had earlier launched the Project 1 Phone Campaign, where customers were offered a chance to donate their old devices, which were then recycled systematically and safely. The campaign has so far recycled over 500,000 kilograms of used devices since its launch. Globe’s partnership with Save Philippines Seas (SPS) has played a key role in protecting the country’s rich marine diversity

Yoly Crisanto, Globe's Chief Sustainability Officer stated that the company, with the help of its customers and other stakeholders, will look at innovative ways to address the plastic problem in the country. The recent initiative involving its employees is only the beginning, he added.
