When we started "Yes, we care", one of the priorities was to support organisations.
We decided on the Buy Food with Plastic, which enables people in India, Nicaragua and Ghana to pay for hot meals with plastic bottles. It's financially supported by us.
The organisation Buy Food with Plastic organises events with locals in India, Nicaragua and Ghana, where the local population can buy a hot meal with plastic bottles. The collected bottles are then processed into useful products. The local people are thus sensitised to a more conscious use of plastic. The Buy Food with Plastic events aim to unite people and provide solutions to the most pressing local issues, such as pollution, hunger and poverty.
Since 2018, these events have already seen over 42,000 PET bottles exchanged for 44,000 meals. In 2022, the organisation is planning a total of 26 more events in Nicaragua, India and Ghana to collect an additional 82,000 PET bottles and give around 1,750 people access to a recycling cycle.
Among other things, our donation supports the expansion of all activities in India. There alone, Buy Food with Plastic is planning 11 events and hopes to sensitise around 950 people to the topic of recycling.
