Carrefour Belgium employees grab their brooms!

BELOW

For the second year in a row, Carrefour Belgium is getting its employees involved in an environmental cause. Staff at Carrefour Hypermarkets and Carrefour Market stores will be taking part in the Retail Clean-up Days. Armed with bin bags, they will go and pick up rubbish lying on the roads within a 25-m radius of their stores on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 October. An opportunity to remind those who might sometimes forget that rubbish bins are there to be made use of.

As they did last year, Carrefour employees are getting involved in an initiative organised by Comeos with support from BeWapp and Mooimakers. During these Retail Clean-up Days, they will be cleaning public areas in a 25-m radius around Carrefour Hypermarket and Carrefour Market store car parks, picking up rubbish lying around in the neighbourhoods in which stores operate.

Last year's Retail Clean-up Days were a big success – nearly 2 tonnes of rubbish was collected, filling up some 350 bin bags. Through this initiative, Carrefour is hoping to help raise people's awareness of just how important it is – for everyone – to respect public areas.

Carrefour – a stakeholder in its neighbourhood
This is the third time that Carrefour has taken action to clean up the neighbourhoods in which its stores operate. Before taking part in last year's Retail Clean-up Days, Carrefour had used the BeWapp campaign last spring to undertake a major “spring cleaning” operation in the areas around its stores in Wallonia.
