Media employees working for the Fox Group Networks carried out an environmental cleaning in collaboration with Kartal Municipality and ÇEVKO Foundation on 27th September at the Aydos Woods.
Within the #21CFImpactWeek activities of Fox carried out simultaneously throughout the world, Fox TV employees were trained by ÇEVKO for a whole week on recycling. Following the trainings, nearly 100 Fox TV employees participated in the Aydos Woods cleaning, and over a ton of packaging waste was collected to be sent to recycling.
The environmental benefits of the recycled packaging waste are as follows;
- With the recycling of 140 kg of paper, cardboard and composite packaging waste, 2 trees were saved from being cut down.
- With the recycling of 350 kg of plastic waste, approximately 263 litres of petrol was saved, which is an amount enough to fill the tanks of 6 vehicles.
- With the recycled paper-cardboard/composite packaging waste, 4m3 of water was saved.
- With the recycled packaging waste, 3,740 kW.hr electricity was saved. This is more than the annual consumption of a family of four.
- With the recycling of packaging waste instead of burying them in landfills, 6m3 of storage space was saved.
