Leading brand, Nestlé Nigeria has launched a sustainability training for kids to teach the younger generation a more sustainable approach to managing and recycling waste in a bid to instill responsible behaviours to enable them become better stewards of our planet.
The training which is being implemented in collaboration with the International Climate Change Development Initiative (ICCDI), was launched under her Nestlé for Healthier Kids (N4HK) program. This training supports the company’s vision to ensure that none of its packaging, including plastics, ends up in landfill or as littler, including in oceans, lakes or rivers and her commitment to protect the planet for future generations.
Speaking at the opening session at St Paul’s Anglican School, Orile Imo, Obafemi Owode, Ogun State, the Corporate Communications and Public Affairs Manager of Nestlé Nigeria PLC, Victoria Uwadoka said, “Children must take an active part in ensuring a more sustainable approach to waste, and we are happy to help to prepare them for this important role. The Sustainability Training for Kids is specially designed to help children inculcate the right habits at an early age.
Olumide Idowu, founder of the International Climate Change Development Initiative said, “We have a lot to learn about waste management and recycling to make the environment much safer. This is not just for us, but for the future generations. This is why this training is important to encourage children to do their part to save our planet.”
