Zelenaya Kaplya: containers for unwanted items at Perekrestok

Perekrestok joined efforts with Zelenaya Kaplya, an organisation that collects unwanted items, to set up 13 containers to collect used items at Moscow stores. The containers available at Perekrestok supermarkets are intended for clothes, footwear, toys, bags, belts, skates and roller skates, and textiles. Prior to putting unwanted items in a container, people had to wash/clean them and pack them in a bag. Zelenaya Kaplya employees sorted the items, giving those suitable for further use to second-hand stores and sending the rest for recycling.

Perekrestok and its partner Zelenaya Kaplya, an organisation that collects used items, have collected over 40 tonnes of items for donation via special containers installed in 13 Perekrestok supermarkets in Moscow during the year.
