Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and corporate volunteering help a business to demonstrate that it operates responsibly and ethically, with awareness and sensitivity. They give added value and good reputation to the business. Consumers feel that the company shares the same values with them and at the same time the commitment of the employees to the company increases.
Beach and underwater cleanups with All For Blue
Seminars, underwater and beach cleanups with All For Blue combine action with fun and are practical proof that the business cares about the environment.
- We start with a seminar on the protection of the marine ecosystem, lasting about an hour.
- Participants learn what they can do to contribute to the rescue of the marine ecosystem, such as how to avoid the use of plastics.
- The underwater clean up is done by divers-trainers of All For Blue and employees of the company who are certified divers.
- Together we wear reusable gloves and with reusable bags we clean the beach.
- We weigh the garbage, separate recycling materials by type (ex: plastic, glass, metal, wood) and register them in a global database.

The participation of employees in All For Blue clean ups helps to strengthen team bonding. They get to know each other better, learn their strengths and weaknesses, and actually learn to work together more effectively in their day-to-day tasks. Each team seeks to be the winner, collecting the most trash, thus strengthening the commitment to achieve goals. It has proven to be one of the best ways to increase productivity in a business.
The plastics collected from our actions will “return” to the local community in the form of waste bins, as a souvenir, but also as proof that any product that inevitably reaches the “end of its useful life” can be reused and become sustainable.
What others have said about our organisation:
“I knew the marine ecosystem was in danger, but with the seminar I learned the magnitude of the disaster and what I can do to help. “When we went to the beach to clean it, I felt that what I was doing had meaning and impact.”
“Managers and employees from all departments became teams, we learned each other’s abilities, skills and we collaborated to achieve the goal in an environment different from that of the company. I believe that we have become a stronger team”.
“At first I was a bit hesitant about the value of such a programme. It turned out that I was making a big mistake. We came closer, we all became “one”, we worked systematically and effectively and the relationships that were created are reflected in the performance of the employees. Let it be fun! ”
