Part of DFC? Recycle your MonViso water bottles for good

Give Life” initiative. The initiative aims to raise funds for Al Jalila Foundation - a global philanthropic organisation.

In-line with Dubai Fitness Challenge’s spirit of being in it, together, MonViso has placed recycling bins across the various Fitness Villages to ensure proper disposal of bottles, encouraging the community to band together and recycle. Participants will also be able to spot “MonViso gladiators” at these locations, who have been appointed to educate and assist the public in joining the program. By the end of the 30-day challenge, MonViso aims to collect a total of 150,000 bottles and convert them to fibre then turn it into T-shirts which they aim to sell. Proceeds will go to the Al Jalila Foundation.
