MORE THAN 70 VOLUNTEERS FROM ESTEVE PARTICIPATE IN THE PRESERVATION OF CELRÀ (GIRONA) AND MARTORELLES (BARCELONA) COUNTRYSIDES

A total of 72 volunteers, including ESTEVE employees and their relatives, participated this weekend in a one-day environmental volunteer event in collaboration with NGO Acciónatura. This event took place at Illa dels Salzes in Celrà (Girona) and at Torrent de Can Sunyer in Martorelles (Barcelona), and was meant to contribute to the preservation of these two countrysides.

This event was part of ESTEVE's SMILES Volunteer Program and included several family- and play-based activities to raise our collaborators' awareness on the importance of protecting the environment by involving them in a preservation project. Workers wishing to collaborate in this initiative could choose, according to their and their relatives' preferences, between the Illa dels Salzes and the Torrent de Can Sunyer areas, two unique Catalan countrysides.

At the Illa dels Salzes Boulevard (Girona), ESTEVE has participated in the restoration of this countryside on the banks of the Ter River at the town of Celrà, where the Company has a production plant. There, ESTEVE collaborators planted native trees and helped remove alien species, maintain itinerary infrastructures, and dispose of waste. They also acted as one-day scientists by participating in a bird banding workshop.
At the Torrent de Can Sunyer, volunteers helped restore the environment of a stretch at Martorelles, where ESTEVE has a production center. This project included removing waste from that area, planting native trees, removing alien species, and maintaining the rest areas. Collaborators and their relatives also participated in two workshops, where they learned how to make compost and how to start a home vegetable garden.
