Protecting Nature With Pick-up to Clean-up at OTIZ
OTIZ’s Human Resources Department established a team building division to plan activities that aim to build cohesiveness. Employees and their families were encouraged to participate and to enjoy fun and some quality time.
During the event, teams of families picked up discarded trash along the roads of Dongshan Village, Suzhou. The children followed their parents’ lead and became guardians of nature, embracing the environmental education they received in school and focusing wholeheartedly on this task. It is the hope that through this campaign, the children are left with a profound understanding that environmental protection is a responsibility shared by all.
Almost every family in Dongshan and Xishan in Suzhou has fruit trees such as the loquat, date, pomegranate and tangerine in the garden. However, a predominate elderly population has made harvesting a trying task. To keep the fresh fruits from going to waste, OTIZ decided to lend a hand and started a campaign to help the farmers harvest the fruits. The elders shared tips on harvesting with the OTIZ staff, who then harvested and packed the fruits and loaded them onto the truck. The campaign helped them realize that team spirit is not just essential for an individual to thrive at work, but crucial for an entire corporation to flourish.
Be it the trash pickup or fruit harvesting campaign, the staff at OTIZ and their families have learned the importance of protecting the environment and helping the community.
