In cooperation with the charity "Helfen statt Wegwerfen" (Helping instead of throwing away), employees in our laboratories collect used PE and PP items that are to be recycled, because plastic is a valuable material. From the proceeds, children with special needs are supported with therapy, therapy equipment, hospitalization, vehicle and building modifications. On 8.10. 2021, 30 kg of plastic were handed over for the first time to the chairman of the association, Mr. Machek - another milestone in the implementation of our sustainability goals at the WCL! Everybody is welcome to join the collection.
