Hrvatska pošta d.d. Cooperation with the association “Green Feet”
Croatian Post contributes to protect the environment and Croatian natural beauties through cooperation with the environmental association “Green Feet”.
The association “Green Feet” plays a crucial role to preserve the environment by removing illegal landfills and dumping sites from national and natural parks in Croatia. Croatian Post and its postal employees recognised the importance of these actions and have been actively involved in the work of the association for eight years. The postal employees from the city of Samobor assist in the work of the association by direct participation in cleaning actions.
Their efforts have helped clean up landfills in their area. Croatian Post decided to contribute further to this action by printing a commemorative postcard, which was distributed to all postal employees, while Croatian citizens could buy it at the nearest post office. The location of any car wreckage can be reported and sent on the postcard so that members of the “Green Feet” can remove it. The postmen notify “Green Feet” about new car wreckages locations daily and have largely contributed to the preservation and protection of the environment throughout Croatia.
The ecological association “Green Feet” has removed more than 16,000 pieces of car wreckage from national and natural parks. Croatian postmen and postwomen have helped spot and remove many of them. By this action, Croatian Post contributes to additional
awareness raising and informing the public about the problem of illegal landfills in nature.
