We are happy to announce that our colleagues from Bertling Logistics Sweden organized their own cleanup session, in connection with International Coastal Day and World Cleanup Day on 17 September. Our team in Sweden chose to collaborate with Städa Sverige (Cleaning Sweden) - an organization that works with social and environmental sustainability with a focus on zero waste while contributing financially to sports youth.
In 1 hour, 13 bags of waste were collected. Our team found plastics, paper, shoes, fabrics, metal, electronics, and basically everything that doesn’t belong in nature. Afterward, the participants were rewarded with a sustainable vegan BBQ.
Despite 1 hour of hard work, our team felt far from done as there is still much waste left on our streets. This was not the first cleanup session and it’s definitely not the last. The cleaning gloves will soon be back on!
From this experience, we become more aware that keeping our area/city clean is a shared responsibility. And we hope we could inspire other people to take this action too and make a better world.
HOW CAN WE SUPPORT YOU?
