Clean Up the World 2013As part of the international Clean Up the World day, on 23 September, Holiday Inn Warsaw Józefów together with MM Packaging showed their support for this initiative by cleaning up the forests alongside the Świder river.
As was the case in the last few years, the initiative was helped by children from a local children’s home in Otwock and from Caritas, as well as supported by the Józefów Town Council, which provided cleaning materials (bags, gloves, rubbish grabbers). In total, more than 300 people took part.
After the hard work, MM Packaging rewarded everyone with specially prepared goody bags. There was also a bonfire with sausages prepared by Holiday Inn Warsaw Józefów, and children could have fun at the rope park and minigolf.
“This is the third time we have managed to co-organise this event, which I feel is an important message for the local community regarding the cleanliness of the forests around us. We may not be able to clean up the whole world, but we can at least start with the area we live or work in,” said Rafał Kuczyński, General Manager of Holiday Inn Warsaw Jóżefów.
„Angażujemy się i inicjujemy takie akcje również dlatego, że wpisuje się to w zasady sieci hotelowej, do której przynależy nasz hotel – InterContinental Hotels Group. Sieć wspiera i propaguje tego typu działania. Dzięki temu szanse na czyste środowisko rosną i jestem pewien, że za rok spotkamy się w takim samym lub większym składzie.” – mówi James Hancock, dyrektor sprzedaży i marketingu w Holiday Inn Warszawa Józefów.
„We participate in and even initiate such ideas, as they are an important part of being a member of InterContinental Hotels Group, which supports and promotes activities that help save the environment. I look forward to seeing as many people, if not more, participating again next year,” said James Hancock, Director of Sales and Marketing from Holiday Inn Warsaw Józefów.
