Canada has launched the ‘Canvas for Change’ project to hearten the exploit of reusable shopping bags in Pakistan while sustaining the women’s entrepreneurship in alliance with Second Cup, SPARC and a local NGO.
The ‘Canvas for Change’ project will be implemented in collaboration with ‘Second Cup’, a Canadian coffee chain with outlets across Pakistan, and the Society for the Protection of the Rights of the Child (SPARC), a local NGO working for the promotion and protection of child rights.
According to Canadian high commissioner Wendy Gilmour, the initiative is intended to mark the harmony with the Clean and Green Pakistan campaign. She thanked managing director of Second Cup Pakistan Asim Majid and SPARC ED Sajjad Cheema for their support and rendezvous in the project.
Canvas bags will be completed by women entrepreneurs as part of SPARC’s programmes with opportunities to learn and earn. Second Cup is sustaining this project as part of its corporate social responsibility programme, which also includes other environmental initiatives such as the Rainforest Alliance Certifications and Fair Trade Coffees.
The project would create a new prospect for women entrepreneurs to start own sustainable enterprise and would cheering everyone to take action against climate change by avoiding the use of single-use plastic and assemble the important knob to reusable shopping bags.
