"A LIVABLE WORLD IS EASIER TOGETHER"

Since the day we launched Turkey's first biodegradable garbage bag, our vision has been to produce sustainable products and solutions that make life easier. In addition to our ever-growing sustainable product portfolio, 50% of the formulations used in the production of all our garbage bags are made from recycled materials. You can view our Koroplast eco-friendly product portfolio here.

As part of our sustainability mission statement, "A livable world is easier together," we support waste collection campaigns and carry out many projects to raise recycling awareness:

We launched the global waste collection movement TrashTag in Turkey.

We have set up a recycling station in Kidzania.

As a trash bag sponsor, we have supported environmental cleanup campaigns for years by working with non-governmental organizations (Turmepa, Let's Do It Turkey, Mind Your Waste Foundation) and communities.

In line with our mission to bring recycling to children, Turkey's most popular children's author Sara Şahinkanat wrote the story "The Girl Whispering to the Birds" for Koroplast. In our 40th year with ÇEVKO, we have turned the waste collected in 40 places into a storybook.


Based on our storybook, which teaches children the importance of recycling, we have conducted recycling training in schools in cooperation with TOÇEV. At the same time, we launched our “Heroes of Transformation” website to bring recycling awareness to every child

In cooperation with ÇEVKO, we have installed recycling units in schools.

We see everyone who thinks about the future of our world become aware of the environment and make small changes in their habits as "Heroes of Transformation." Under the motto "A livable world is easier together," we invite everyone to become a "Transformation Hero" in our recycling projects.

CLEANING UP TURKEY
#easiertogether

One of the biggest problems of our planet is the waste left to nature. In particular, the waste left in the forests and on the coasts, in addition to causing pollution, can cause forest fires and threaten the life of living creatures.

As Koroplast, we have been one of the biggest supporters of environmental cleaning movements for years. We continue to support the environmental cleaning activities of non-governmental organizations and volunteers, which we call Recycling Heroes, by sending "Recycling Bags" that are made of 80% recycled materials and can be recycled again.

If you want to join the Transformation Heroes and clean your surroundings, all you have to do is take a photo of the area you want to clean and fill out the form below.

Because leaving a livable world to the future is #easiertogether.

LEARNING ABOUT RECYCLİNG
#easiertogether

Today we are aware that if we do not protect our world, it will be too late, and our natural resources will be exhausted. To raise awareness of recycling in society, non-governmental organizations, municipalities, and policymakers must act together and make individual efforts. It is our duty to teach sustainability and recycling, especially to children who are the architects of our future.


To this end, we launched our education platform in 2021 in partnership with TOÇEV. We introduced the storybook "The Girl Whispering to the Birds" written by the popular Turkish children's author Sara Şahinkanat and the recycling training sessions inspired by our book to the students. Between March and May 2022, we made 7,508 children in 21 schools in 6 provinces aware of recycling, and by setting up recycling units in all the schools we visited, we enabled the children to put what they learned into practice. We will continue our projects for many years to come with a growing voice under the umbrella of sustainability.

AVOID WASTE
#easiertogether

It is not enough to just collect and recycle trash to protect our environment. Waste should also be avoided. We know very well that change starts first in our own homes. That's why we launched the “Transformation Kitchen” video project to prevent and raise awareness about waste in the kitchen.

Our Transformation Kitchen recipes, explaining how to create new flavors from leftover ingredients and dishes in the kitchen, are waiting for you on Koroplast's YouTube page.
