Sharon Ply’s PET Bottle crusher at Madurai Bus Terminus information shared on Dinamalar.
PET Bottle crushed and recycled to build new roads.
In a year, the world consumes nearly half a trillion Plastic bottles with only half of it getting collected for recycling. The rest of the plastic goes to landfills or the ocean where they break down and enter our food chain. PET bottles are carelessly thrown around in our country without thinking twice about recycling. In order to make it easy for people to make the responsible choice and recycle the PET bottles, Sharon Ply has commissioned a PET bottle collection & shredding machine at Madurai’s Mattuthavani Bus Terminus. Thousands of passengers who use this terminus can now dispose of their water/juice bottles (after emptying contents). The machine is maintained by W2W enterprise who will handle the collection of the shredded plastic for recycling.

Our world is full of problems. Most people complain about the problems and just move on without ever doing anything to fix the problems. Sharon Ply thinks differently and gets down to making a difference through dedicated action. #iSayNoToPlastic is an initiative that Sharon Ply cares deeply about and we have undertaken several activities to address the growing problem of #PlasticPollution. Here is a short video compilation of some of the major activities undertaken by Sharon Ply in the recent months to take the message of #iSayNoToPlastic to the public.
Our Earth is neither blue nor green. It is composed of myriad colours and hues painted on by the diversity of its plant and animal life.
In order for Earth to keep its colours, it is important for humans to adopt eco-friendly ways of living. Sharon Plywoods has been undertaking several eco-friendly initiatives to create awareness and bring about social change in order to preserve the diversity of Earth.
To spread the word about eco-conservation, Sharon Plywoods has painted 4 railway engines with their message about Earth’s colours which will carry the message across the length and breadth of India. The first engine was flagged off by Mr SC Das, President, Sharon Plywoods and The AD RM, Southern Railways at 5.50 pm on Saturday, Jan 12, 2019. This engine was attached to the Chennai – Jolarpet, Yelagiri Express on that day.
