Two Schools Commemorate World Environment Day With Voltic and Environment360
On the occasion of World Environment Day (WED), Voltic (GH) Limited (Voltic) joined two basic schools within the Medie community in the Ga West Municipality to undertake a cleanup exercise and an environmental care dialogue at the Voltic factory in Medie.
About 150 pupils from the Meyah Preparatory School and Joy2theWorld International Christian Academy came together to clean, weed, and desilt drains in a community near the Voltic plant.
The commemorative event forms part of Voltic’s drive towards sustainable environmental management and its aim of producing environmental ambassadors especially in children.
Cordie Aziz, Executive Director of Environment360, Voltic’s partner in the Evolve PET recycling project, gave a short presentation on environmental consciousness. She was emphatic that “we need to be conscious about the way we use plastics and how we dispose of them.
As young persons, it is important that you learn the habit of environmental cleanliness so you will grow to appreciate that an abuse of the environment in anyway, especially littering with plastic is harmful to sustainable living”.
Ms. Aziz also indicated that Evolve has been nominated for a SEED award which is an encouragement to Voltic and its partners. She added that “this recognition will urge us on to do more for society”.
