In the backdrop of World Environment Day, MakeMyTrip has collaborated with WWF in their initiative, GIVE UP TO GIVE BACK CHALLENGE to spread awareness about the scourge of single-use plastic.
MakeMyTrip has pledged to give up single-use plastic and is encouraging employees to use more sustainable alternatives. MMT is installing plastic crushing machines in locations such as Andamans, Ladakh, Gurgaon and Bangalore. In order to further reduce the carbon footprints, MMT has planted over a half of million trees near Udaipur from the Rs. 5/- contribution that travellers make while booking on the platform. MMT has also distributed 10,000+ durable jute bags to all the employees and other NRC companies.
