Employees at YKK Mexicana S.A. de C.V. participate in Banco de Tapitas initiative

November 25, 2019 YKK

 

Our colleagues at YKK Mexicana S.A. de C.V. have been participating in a giving back initiative with the organization Banco de Tapitas. The organization partners with companies around the country to collect all types of plastic caps through authorized ambassadors and collection centers, the donations are recycled to generate resources for the care of patients from 0 to 21 years within the country, through several programs. For every 1,000 lids collected, a chemotherapy treatment is donated to a child in need.

For the past several months employees have been given the task of gradually collecting plastic caps to donate to the organization. The first donation was made in July 2019  in the city of León, Guanajuato. Approximately 15,000 caps were collected which are equivalent to 15 chemotherapies for 15  patients diagnosed with cancer.

Employees decided to continue the activity to help contribute to the care of the environment by recycling while helping children in need. They are motivated by the slogan #LosBuenosSomosMas (The good ones are more). Watch this video to learn more about Bancos de Tapitas and their mission.
