Recycle today for a better tomorrow
Unable to spare time to volunteer? Help drive our initiatives by simply giving away your recyclable trash. Reach out to Paperman, a social enterprise that helps people recycle their trash, and uses the proceeds to bring about social change.
They will connect you to the nearest local scrap dealer, who would visit your homes to buy your trash. While the materials are sent for recycling, 100% of the proceeds from the sale would be channelized into Friends of Chennai’s social initiatives.
Call Paperman in the next two months to contribute your trash.
