APRIL 2024 | A DAY OF ECO-FRIENDLY ACTIVITIES WITH LOCAL COMMUNITY REFURBISHMENTS & BEACH CLEANING

✨ Last weekend, we had the pleasure to give back to our community and care for our planet! Through the successful collaboration between Environmental Protection Engineering S.A., ERMA FIRST, HELMEPA – Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association, and Open Farm, we brought together families and environmental enthusiasts for a day filled with enriching and eco-friendly activities.

From cultivating summer vegetables and creating a vibrant botanic garden at Etairia Prostasias Anilikon Pirea with OPEN FARM to participating in the SEF Beach Cleaning initiative alongside HELMEPA’s committed children and youth attendees, this weekend was a blend of learning, fun, and meaningful engagement. The day was rounded off with a visit to the esteemed Yacht Club of Greece, including a welcome note by Olga Stavropoulou and Semiramis Paliou followed by an inspiring speech by George J. Prokopiou, one of the leading Greek shipowners.

Let’s make a difference together!

In honour of World Blood Donor Day, EPE and ERMA FIRST ESK Engineering Solutions S.A. organised a second company blood drive where 30 people donated blood, and many employees registered as blood donors. Thank you to the volunteers from the Hellenic Red Cross & Hellenic Red Cross – Samaritans, Rescuers and Lifeguards Sector and Nimits Hospital for supporting this important activity.

November 2022 | EPE & HELMEPA TEAM UP TO CLEAN THE ELEFSINA BEACH

Last weekend, EPE and HELMEPA – Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association proudly organized a volunteering action, gathering up the team to clean the #Elefsina #Beach. EPE’s Marine Environment Protection Department Team has been the leading force behind this action and together with HELMEPA – Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association and other volunteers put huge efforts to successfully clean the beach and enjoyed a fantastic day filled with purpose and environmental impact.

EPE has been defining environmental protection since 1977 and this volunteering action has been another proof-point in respect to the EPE’s Brand Promise of environmental preservation. We collected an extensive amount of waste, filling up five large industrial bags. Recyclable materials were separated from the generic waste to follow further processing. Additionally, an extensive cleaning of the promenade and part of the harbor was also completed. Closing the day, an educational environmental briefing took place to raise awareness of the environmental issues as well as how to act responsibly towards the environment adopting sustainable actions in our everyday lives.

Giving back and empowering the local community has been a key driver for this action and has been an honor to see local residents enjoying the beach after the cleaning and receiving lots of thankful comments from the local community. We should all act fast as the environment needs our support!
