ARL launched Campaign to curb use of Plastic Shopping bags

Attock Refinery Limited (ARL) in line with government’s initiative to curb use of polythene / plastic shopping bags, has launched a proactive campaign in ARL campus and surrounding communities of Morgah and KothaKalan. As an alternative to polythene / plastic bags ARL has established sale points for durable cloth bags on nominal charges as part of CSR and all shops in the area have been advised to use paper bags in lieu of polythene / plastic bags. 

Awareness sessions are also being arranged for residents of the area and children of all local schools, highlighting the hazards of plastic / polythene bags and the resultant co-lateral damage to the environment. ARL would also organize plastic / polythene bags collection and disposal week after Eid-ul-Azha, involving its employees, local residents of Union Councils Morgah & KothaKalan and school children.
