GasanMamo In­sur­ance sup­ports Earth Day clean-up

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

On Sun­day, 22 April GasanMamo In­sur­ance cel­e­brated Earth Day by sup­port­ing a clean-up day which was or­gan­ised by Malta Clean-up and its founder, Camilla Ap­pel­gren. The lat­ter is a Swedish Mal­tese clean-up en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist who is con­tin­u­ously work­ing tire­lessly to en­cour­age pub­lic sup­port for clean-up and waste re­duc­tion ef­forts. For Earth Day, Ap­pel­gren teamed up with var­i­ous lo­cal coun­cils and lo­cal busi­ness com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing GasanMamo, in co­or­di­nat­ing a na­tion­wide clean-up across Malta in 77 dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions.

GasanMamo’s em­ploy­ees joined a num­ber of vol­un­teers and par­tic­i­pated in the clean-up which took place in Sel­mun, Mel­lieħa. Ac­tivists got to work col­lect­ing trash from early morn­ing and by early af­ter­noon most of the clean-ups were com­pleted. This en­vi­ron­men­tal event forms part of the In­sur­ance com­pany cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity cam­paign themed Spread the Love, with the aim to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity.

“GasanMamo is hon­oured to give a help­ing hand in th­ese types of ini­tia­tives and this was a per­fect op­por- tu­nity to cel­e­brate Earth Day in Malta. Fur­ther­more, this was also a good oc­ca­sion for the staff mem­bers to ‘spread the love’ and vol­un­teer for the com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­men­tal ini­tia­tives of the com­pany. The com­pany will con­tinue to sup­port th­ese types of ac­tiv­i­ties as they are ben­e­fi­cial to our en­vi­ron­ment and it brings peo­ple to­gether to trans­form pub­lic places into beau­ti­ful spa­ces,” said Ju­lian J. Mamo, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor.

Earth Day is also a sig­nif­i­cant day to bring at­ten­tion to the type of work be­ing done by nu­mer­ous vol­un­teers in Malta, such as Ap­pel­gren. For the past years she has been or­gan­is­ing nu­mer­ous clean-ups all over the is­land, along with her fam­ily. GasanMamo is grate­ful for Ap­pel­gren’s work and her con­stant ef­fort to in­spire, stim­u­late and ed­u­cate the Mal­tese pub­lic to care for our en­vi­ron­ment.

Com­ment­ing in a blog of The Malta In­de­pen­dent of 24 April, Ap­pel­gren said that “clean-ups are not just for clean­ing up. They are a way of en­abling like-minded peo­ple to meet up, dis­cuss ideas and make sure that peo­ple feel that they are part of the so­lu­tion and not the prob­lem”.
