Valuing Earth Day raises an awareness to save the Earth among all. Especially in times of global warming. AKTI celebrated Earth Day on 22nd April 2014 to remind us to conserve natural resources for future use.
This Year we Al Karam Towel Industries (AKTI) specifically focused on plantation to control global warming and minimize pollution. AKTI planted more than three hundred plants in all AKTI Units altogether. .
Motive of Plantation
The basic purpose of arranging plantation activity in AKTI is to make the workers and staff well aware about the importance of plants & trees.
Plants clean the air
Plants/Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases.
Plant / Trees conserve energy
Plant prevent water pollution
Plants / Trees shield us from ultra-violet rays
Plants &Trees create economic opportunities
Plants &Trees provide food, aside from fruit for humans, trees provide food for birds and wildlife. Trees provide a canopy and habitat for wildlife
In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.
Utilization of Waste Material
Rcycle of wastage
We recycle waste materials. Have workers to save their defected piece of towels, Damaged Cartons etc for two days prior to Earth Day. Then, on a designated day, had everyone drop off their waste collections at a chosen site. Then "drew" the picture on the board with those waste pieces.
AKTI on quarterly bases arranges Fire Drill to make it confirm that the workers evacuate within the time limit and gather at specific area (assembly point) or not. To make it more effective, we call the inspector as per schedule from Civil Defense to monitor the whole activity and identify the role and responsibility of workers and feedback after the drill to eliminate obstacles if observed..to create life saving awareness related to fire hazards
