CARMEUSE Team and 450 GOOD DEEDS
“Plantam fapte bune in Romania” (We plant good deeds in Romania) is the name of the program initiated by a non-profit organization, EcoAssist Association. The objective of this spring project was to prevent landslides on a hill area in Arges county. Over 6.000 trees were bought for this action. Carmeuse enthusiastically responded to their call, especially that this action took place in the community belonging to our Campulung Plant.
So, at the end of March we, as a team, did one more step regarding sustainable behavior. Why? Because, besides the financial support, we decided we give out some of our free time in order to contribute to a greener environment. 18 employees from HQ and Campulung Plant said YES to this initiative.
In the early morning of March 31st, we were at Topoloveni, ready to work! And because Safety is first, we wore adequate branded safety equipment. On that Saturday, Carmeuse team planted 450 trees! It was not easy, but it was a wonderful day for all of us. And the important thing is what we left behind: “450 good deeds”. The feeling that we did it as a team and we worked side by side for a sustainable cause was amazing.
Right attitude is the key for sustainability. Responsibility for prosperity, people and planet should be felt as values at individual level, by each of us. And this action proved once more we did it because we care and because we understood the true meaning of acting sustainable!
