For the fifth year running Pirelli Romania sponsored an environmental initiative in the Slatina area, where our factory is located.
“Volunteers Join Together” – the name of the operation – involved over a hundred employees. The volunteers met up early in the morning of Saturday 11th October in Streharet Forest, in the outskirts of the town, to clean up one of the favourite locations for barbecue enthusiasts.
Divided into teams, they raked over the whole area, collecting over 200 bags of rubbish including plastic, paper, organic waste and even construction scrap.
A social responsible initiative for the company and a deep commitment by the participants who tackled the day with a certain dose of competitive sporting spirit. In fact, the three teams that collected the greatest amount of rubbish were awarded a trophy and a bonsai, as reward for their commitment on such an important topic as environment.
