On October 11, we cleaned up Warsaw. The “Clean Action” program covered areas of Warsaw’s Mokotow district, and Chubb volunteers took care of the beautiful green surroundings of the Warsaw Uprising Mound. Participants of the action acted with commitment and great enthusiasm, and during the event we managed to collect about 50 bags of waste, or about 650 kilograms of garbage!
During the event, we also talked about the importance of species diversity and the threat posed by invasive species. After the theoretical introduction, we moved on to the practical part, i.e. we learned about popular species of local flora and learned to identify invasive species, such as the Canadian goldenrod abundantly growing on the Warsaw Uprising Mound. We were also able to identify other invasive plants, such as sharp-pointed knapweed and ash-leaf maples.
We sincerely thank Chubb for its commitment to the environment and thus improving the quality of life of not necessarily only local residents. We hope that the knowledge and experience gained during the action will take root and be spread further.
