ITG Leading The Way Towards Change

March 19, 2018 - Beirut, Lebanon

A- A+

In an effort to have opportunities for all, ITG continuously seeks to contribute to local communities in positive ways. Including our workforce as much as possible in collective initiatives, while progressing our corporate social responsibility, is translated in ITG internal activities.
 

Our latest initiative was eco-friendly and at the same time contributing to the community in more than one way.

 

In a week, we were able to collect 132.2 kg of clothes from our employees who were donating unwanted items and dropping them in the collection boxes available in our offices.  

 

FabricAid, a Lebanese organization that collects used clothes from businesses, has aggregated the items we gathered and brought them to their warehouse, where they are sorted into categories to be later sold at extremely affordable prices to marginalized communities through pop-up markets. Noting that the over consumed clothes are recycled to be turned into raw material used by clothes manufacturers in order to reach zero fabric waste in Lebanon.

 

For every kilogram of collected clothes, FabricAid and ITG donate a small amount to a cause. We have chosen Include Lebanon, an NGO that promotes the social welfare of children with disabilities to have equal opportunities in the society.

 

With that, we were able to help our society at different levels, hoping that others will follow this pattern.
