“RECYCLE EVERY FRIDAY” CAMPAIGN

ARTMATRIX is deeply committed to recycling since 2006. We have initiated a program to encourage employees to get more involved in environmental initiatives. We work closely with our business partners and employees to reduce, reuse, and recycle as much waste generated in Artmatrix as possible.

Throughout the years, “Recycle Every Friday” took place to support each employee taking small steps to reduce the amount of trash created at home and in the office. This campaign aimed to educate and inform employees about the importance of recycle and the impacts of the items have on the environment.

More informative workshops will be carried out from time to time to increase awareness, raise recycling rates and reduce our operational impact on the environment, as well as reduce our environmental footprint.

Artmatrix also encourage their employees to bring their household recycle waste on every Friday for recycle. Recycled materials include cardboard, paper, plastic, scrap metal, glass bottles, food waste, aluminum, fluorescent lamps, and rechargeable batteries.
