At Datesand, we are continuously trying to improve our green credentials by identifying problems that we can help to improve both inside and outside our business.
Most recently, we have organised a couple of litter picks near the Datesand HQ to ensure that the environment in which we work is as clean as possible, both for us and the community around us.
A few small teams have given up their lunch breaks to take to the streets and collect a large amount of rubbish from our surrounding streets in Manchester. We have ensured that we separate as much of this into recyclable and non-recyclable materials so that all the litter we have found can be disposed of as efficiently as possible.
Being so close to a major football stadium, it is, unfortunately, unsurprising to see so much litter lying around and tossed into bushes. It is, however, very eye-opening and acts as a huge reminder that more than just litter picking needs to be done to fight this problem.
Thanks to all the volunteers who have given a helping hand so far – you make the Datesand team proud!
We are fully committed to taking part in more picks all throughout out the year and are currently setting up a number of plans across the entire business to ensure that we are doing all we can and are making all the changes necessary so that we can do our bit to help the environment and contribute to the zero-carbon goal of Greater Manchester.
