“Let’s Do It Cyprus” Cleaning Campaign
“Let’s Do It Cyprus” Cleaning Campaign
For a third consecutive year, on 23 April 2015 a group of volunteers from the CySEC personnel, enthusiastically participated in the Pancyprian cleaning campaign «Let’s Do It Cyprus»; part of the global campaign cleaning «Let’s do it World!» In Cyprus the campaign aims to clean the garbage from nature areas within a day, with the help of volunteers. CySEC’s team of volunteers contributed to the cleaning of the area at Pediaios river, Strovolos, near the post office on Prodromou Avenue, which was the starting point for the CySEC team. The target is to bring awareness to the importance of the preservation of our environment and that it is every person’s responsibility to keep our island clean. This is the massage; that it is our collective responsibility to protect our natural environment not only because of personal benefits, enjoyment and health but also for ensuring a healthier and higher quality of living for our children in the future to come.

During the 2015 Christmas holidays CySEC personnel, implementing an innovative and creative idea, managed to collect €600 which was donated to non-privileged families. Under the assistance and direction of the Nicosia Volunteer Association, CySEC managed to donate this money in the form of coupons from various supermarkets so as to enable 6 families to buy food and other basic needs items. Specifically volunteer personnel baked sweet and savory goods, which were thereafter sold to colleagues; this allowing those who wanted and could contribute, but at the same time enjoying homemade culinary delights.

Recycling
Recycling
CySEC recycles many of the materials it uses, such as paper, plastic and batteries, in order to contribute to energy and raw materials savings as well as to the reduction in waste and its effect on the environment. For that purpose, there are several recycling bins in different locations within and outside the CySEC building for the recycling of paper. CySEC also participates in the packaging recycling program of Green Dot Cyprus, and recycles batteries, cartridges, printers and other materials containing substances harmful to human health and the environment. By collecting and recycling these materials, the penetration of the substances in the environment is prevented and energy and natural resources are conserved.
