How the employee got involved and why
It all started when I first came to DHL as whenever I printed a paper I saw piles of paper thrown in the bin because they were printed incorrectly, saw I thought that maybe this paper in to go green or even benefit from it, and after asking all around the facility I knew that we were donating extra papers but not in a regular form or a in system that guarantees sustainability. And one day I was having a meeting with Resala (partner) for a blood donation cause and she mentioned that they can get donations of paper to be sold and recycled later and with that money we can chose any type of donation like building ceilings, Prostheses, hear aid, or even supplying some rural areas with clean water. After that I asked how much we can donate monthly and at first I thought it was just about the paper on the printer but actually I discovered that there is a huge amount of paper that was thrown away daily.
What work does the employee do for charity?
After checking that the amount of paper that we will donate and agreed with the operations to use part of the warehouse to shred the paper to guarantee that there is no confidential information appearing, after wards the paper is given to our partner (Resala) monthly where we weight the paper shredded paper and count the number of bags keeping record for each month and on average of 170 to 200 kilo grams per month.
