Estonia - Omniva
Omniva’s contribution to World Cleanup Day
To contribute to World Cleanup Day, Omniva organised its own trash collection day close to its logistics center.
The World Cleanup Day is a global programme which started in 2018 in Estonia. Omniva’s employees wanted to support this 36-hour green wave of cleanups across the globe - beginning in New Zealand and travelling around the world before ending in Hawaii. The post
invited thus its employees to join the 18 million people across 157 countries by organising their own trash collection day close to its new logistics center. It aimed to contribute to a cleaner environment and to raise awareness on environmental pollution.
On 15th September 31 employees of Omniva gathered with their families on Rukki road to take part in World Cleanup Day. Together they cleaned the cult stone from redundant moss and cut down the underwood around the stone. After the hard work people had a chance
to rest, eat homemade soup and cake and share their experiences.
Instead of taking part in the action on Rukki road some of the company’s employees also held a cleanup in their own home region. The employees participated in World Cleanup Day’s actions all over Estonia.
Omniva also invited its clients to join this initiative by sending them an invitation by email and through online communication channels.
During World Cleanup Day 2018, 17.8 million volunteers from 157 countries collected 82,280 tons of waste. Omniva was very proud to be part of this concrete action to fight pollution. The post’s employees cleaned the landscape gathering 20 bags of plastic waste along with 11 car tires, a five-meters long hose, many pieces of styrofoam and glass bottles.
