SC Johnson Teams Up to Increase Recycling in South America

October 22, 2021

SC Johnson Professional has launched a new partnership with leading environmental group Compromiso Empresarial para el Reciclaje (CEMPRE) and Argentinian grocery chain La Anónima.

The three organizations will work together to increase recycling rates and capture more plastic and other recyclable waste material in the Patagonia region of Argentina and Chile. SC Johnson and its partners will establish a collection center, or ecopoint, where consumers will be able to drop off paper and cardboard, plastic, glass, aluminum, steel, and tin for repurposing. In addition, SC Johnson will work with La Anónima on an in-store educational campaign to increase recycling awareness.

“SC Johnson is pleased to partner with La Anónima and CEMPRE in Argentina as part of our efforts to help create a waste-free world,” said Alan VanderMolen, SC Johnson senior vice president and chief communications office. “The global plastic pollution crisis knows no boundaries, and it will take collective action to solve it in order to protect vital ecosystems like Patagonia for this and future generations.”
