On the 11th September Henry Schein NZ participated this in ‘G.J. Gardner Homes Clean Up Week’ week and focused on the local Albany reserve up the road from us – picking up rubbish along footpaths, streams and park reserve areas. We grabbed our reusable gloves and buckets and took to picking up everything we could find (even a discarded car seat and other interesting items!). The team successfully collected over 1,600 pieces of rubbish, there were 23 TSMs helping out from HSNZ – thank you to all who participated.

This was a new challenge for us all to think about how to pick up rubbish without creating new waste in doing so – a new mind-set around taking gardening gloves – not plastic gloves, putting rubbish into uckets to take to the recycle centre – not plastic rubbish bags, and a low waste but hearty food celebration at the end – we had a BBQ with sausages in bread, cooked by Mike, to ensure we had a low waste catering approach to the event (no packaging, plastic plates etc.). Check out the October Team Schein Monthly where we are featured internationally within HS for our efforts.
