As part of its community investment focus on the environment Vivo Energy Ghana, the Shell licensee, in partnership with Environment 360, a Non-Governmental Organisation has launched a comprehensive recycling programme targeted at basic schools in the James Town, Chorkor and Lartebiokorshie enclave of the Greater Accra Region​ on 14th August, 2017.

The initiative, dubbed CyClean, forms part of Vivo Energy Ghana’s people-centred community activity programme, focused on communities where it operates. This programme aims at instilling good environmental behaviours and a recycling mind-set in school children.

Additionally, the students were also equipped with skills through series of creative activities such as making pencil and pen holders as well as flower vases out of plastic materials.

Commenting on Vivo Energy Ghana’s involvement, the Executive Director of Environment 360, Cordie Aziz, said the initiative is under Environment 360’s broader project dubbed Evolve for corporate organisations that are passionate about the environment. This programme is specifically designed to give a ‘second life’ to our waste and ensuring a clean environment.
