SEOUL, June 4 (Korea Bizwire) — South Korea’s leading steelmaker POSCO is set to launch a waste plastic collection campaign to celebrate World Environment Day on Friday.
The waste plastics that POSCO and its partner companies collect will be mixed with steel materials and upscaled into useful products for everyday life.
For those who participate in the campaign, the company will provide 5,000 stainless steel tumblers made of eco-friendly materials as souvenirs.
It also plans to support the spread of the plastic collection campaign that E-Mart is operating at its metropolitan outlets.
Existing plastic collection boxes that cannot be recycled will be replaced with POSCO stainless steel collection boxes.
In addition, Internet-of-Things (IoT) functions will be added to make it easier for managers to check how much plastic has been collected and how many people have participated.
