Engaging with Children: Taking Care of the Planet
Gildan’s employees and their families participate in activities to help the environment.
Employees and their families in Honduras, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Mexico and their children joined in a number of community initiatives to raise awareness of the importance of environmental protection. Families participated in reforestation activities and children were invited to compete in an environmental drawing contest and recycling challenge.
Over 200 children participated in the activities aimed at learning about the environment while having fun. Gildan encourages employees to participate in annual activities which reinforce its shared commitment to the care and preservation of the environment as well as create opportunities for families to contribute to the betterment of their communities.
