About Pakistan Waste Platform
in 2017, a group was initiated to raise awareness and fill communication gaps by establishing a platform to voice the need for change on an individual, community, local, and nationwide level. The group is focused on growing discussions around current waste management and recycling practices. . The motivation is to make it easier for people living in Pakistan to choose zero waste and plastic-free lifestyles through the contributions of like-minded individuals.
As of December 2020, we transitioned to becoming a part of the International Waste Platform: Pakistan Waste Platform (PWP).
