The team conceptualized an out-of-the-box program, and used fun to address a serious issue. The result, ‘Plastic to Funtastic’, a unique way to educate employees on how to minimize and eliminate single-use plastic from their daily life and point out the frightening consequences of inaction. Plastic to Funtastic was a carnival-themed event where visitors had fun with plastic. Volunteers set up and organized games, and artistic displays made of plastic, these highlighted ways to #BeatPlasticPollution – the 2018 theme for World Environment Day.
In keeping with the theme, visitors received eco-friendly cloth bags as prizes. The Infosys Sustainability team plans to continue this awareness program to encourage Infoscions to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
