Environmental awareness was the highlight of the activities related to the Environment Month, carried out with Interact employees. The actions started in the first days of June and included donations of plant seedlings, a lecture on waste disposal and sending of internal newsletters with sustainable tips to apply in everyday life.
The 90 seedlings were distributed on the afternoon of the 8th and included samples of rosebush, azalea, ora-pro-nóbis, basil, sword of São Jorge and chlorophyte. Employees were able to choose the species they wanted to replant at home.
On the afternoon of the 9th, the teams attended a lecture with environmental engineer Luana Hermes, from Recic Soluções Ambientais. She addressed the “Separation and disposal of waste”. During the chat, the engineer highlighted that Brazil has already reached the mark of generating 82.5 million tons of waste per year, according to the 2020/2021 report by Abrelpe.
For her, what is worrying is the fact that the generation of waste grows a lot every year and only 4% of all material is recycled. For example, in the last report the country was in the range of 79 million tons/year and today it is over 82 million.
“With the pandemic, the generation of waste composed of plastics has greatly increased. We do need to be careful and make some choices when buying and consuming”, he says.
At the end of the lecture, employees were able to ask some questions about the topic and deepen their knowledge of environmental awareness.
