BDP Cares: Spring cleaning in Czech Republic

RSC Prague clean up

Spring is a season for renewal, whether it’s by giving your home a top-to-bottom spruce up, or by participating in an environmental clean-up day. BDP's EPIcenter in Prague and the Ceska Trebova offices decided to help clean up their local communities by joining Let’s Clean the World, Clean Czech Republic 2019

Let’s Clean the World, Clean Czech Republic 2019 is a voluntary event that has taken place once a year since 2014, in conjunction with the worldwide movement, Let’s Do It. The aim of this event is to help clean areas in the community that are most affected by illegal dumps and garbage. Last year, there were a total of 134,854 volunteers across the country, and this important movement continues to garner more and more support every year.

BDP Czech Republic is proud to be a part of this worthwhile initiative. 

At BDP, our commitment to service runs deep -- in fact, it’s intrinsic to our company culture. Through BDP Cares, we strive to support and engage with our local communities and give back to the places in which we operate. We are proud to say that in total, 25 colleagues dedicated their Saturday to clean their city. The BDP Prague team was focused on cleaning the park that neighbors our office, while the Ceska Trebova team cleared the area around the ground hockey fields and the surroundings.

In our business practices, we strive to do everything we can to operate in an environmentally friendly way. This is at the core of what we do every day, and it was fantastic to see two of our core values in action: our dedication to the environment and our commitment to improving our local communities. 

By the end of the day, over five tons of garbage had been removed, including abandoned shelters, construction debris, broken glass, hundreds of plastic bottles, as well as countless other materials that do not belong in community areas. It was exciting to see the space cleaner than when we first arrived. Our team worked hard to ensure the area was in better and safer condition, upholding our company’s core values by improving our environment.
