Pupils at Muthangari Primary & Junior Secondary School have received a donation of 174 eco-friendly bags and pouches from Air France-KLM.

The bags are creatively repurposed from old billboards and banners, symbolizing Air France-KLM’s commitment to environmental sustainability and its proactive approach to promoting a greener, cleaner future.

The initiative supports the reduction of waste and provides students with practical and sustainable solutions for their everyday needs.

“By repurposing these materials that would otherwise contribute to waste, we are working to instill in our children the values of sustainability and resourcefulness,” said Air France – KLM Regional General Manager for East and Southern Africa, Marius van der Ham.

Billboards are usually made of heavy-grade vinyl, which typically turns into waste at the end of a campaign. By repurposing, the airline provides children from underprivileged communities with long-lasting bags, while protecting the environment from unnecessary landfills.
