SANITAS, the reliable brand of Sarantis Group and AB Vassilopoulos joined forces and conducted their first joint volunteer cleanup action at Veikou Grove in Galatsi. This is an area they will systematically care for through collaborative efforts, with the substantial contribution of the PanHellenic Volunteer Movement Save Your Hood.
On Saturday, October 14th, a park cleanup took place with the participation of over 50 employees from the two companies, as well as volunteers who joined in at the venue, embracing this initiative. The participants gathered earlier at the park and after being provided with the new technology SANITAS FLEX & STRONG garbage bags made from 100% recycled plastic and other equipment they began the process of collecting refuse. With the moto “Everything can be done better”, which also represents the brand’s commitment, volunteers cleaned the entire park area, removing approximately 6,900 liters of waste, of which 2,200 liters were directed for recycling, while 4,700 liters were disposed of in the green bins.
Climate change has already shown visible effects, with severe consequences for the environment and consequently, human life and health, impacting aspects of our daily lives. The planet is our home and can only continue to sustain us if we protect its biodiversity by transforming the climate crisis into an opportunity. It all starts from our homes by adopting more environmentally friendly habits. SANITAS, with respect to the environment, embraces and implements green practices, reducing its environmental footprint.
After the completion of the volunteer cleanup, juices and AB water were distributed to all volunteers as a token of appreciation.
Simultaneously, the world’s first “AB Mobile Environmental Education and Recycling Center” was parked on – site, a groundbreaking collaboration between AB Vassilopoulos and TEXAN, the leading company in the construction and operation of high – tech automatic recycling machines. It opened its doors to the public, turning the recycling into action.
Sarantis Group acknowledges the value of volunteerism in all its forms. We wholeheartedly support the initiative and dedication of individuals who choose to contribute their time and skills for the common good.
Together we engage in cleanup initiatives actively contributing to the environment and collecting various types of waste. We join forces, SANITAS and AB Vassilopoulos and we care for the future just as we care for the present!
