Nieuws: Sustainability Week
Sustainability, a word that you hear almost every day. But what is sustainability and how can you live more sustainable?
From October 8th until October 12th, Eurest is organising the sustainability week at The Strip. ‘We challenge ourselves this week to work and produce more sustainable. This week, we’d like to challenge you as well to live more sustainable.’ Learn more about how you can live more sustainable and why you should be aware of this issue.
Every day in this week will have it’s own sustainability theme.
MONDAY; NO SOCIAL WASTE
Challenge: Gaining social benefits
By activating the students of The Colour Kitchen and putting them to work in several restaurants we gain social benefits. Don’t waste talent, give them a chance and help them grow! We work together with The Colour Kitchen in this, they are specialised in educating people with a distance to the labour market. Together we give social talent a change, so it doesn’t go to waste.

ALL WEEK LONG; GIVE A COAT AND WARM A HEART
The number of homeless people, adults and children, who live on the margins of society in Eindhoven and its surroundings, is increasing. Life on the streets and with a limited social network is hard. That is why, from 8 until 24 October 2018, Samen voor Eindhoven is collecting warm coats. Several companies in and around Eindhoven will be collecting hundreds of coats via the Give a coat and warm a heart campaign. Want to contribute to this campaign? Hand in your pre-loved coat @The Strip.
