“Krasny Kotelshchik” Participated in All-Russian Environmental Campaign
The Taganrog Boiler-Making Works “Krasny Kotelshchik” (TKZ) supported the All-Russian Campaign “Water of Russia” aimed at cleaning of RF coasts. TKZ people and members of their families put in order a large area of the coast of the Taganrog Gulf of the Azov Sea.
The Environmental campaign “Water of Russia” is held within the framework of Federal Project “Safekeeping of Unique Water Bodies” of National Project “Ecology”. It is implemented by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of RF in association with the Federal Agency of Water Resources. Starting from 2014 the Campaign has been actively expanding its footprint, involving more and more participants from various regions of Russia.
This year the All-Russian initiative was supported by “Krasny Kotelshchik”. The company team put in order the Chekhov Embankment being a popular leisure area of Taganrog citizens and guests. Young employees of TKZ are among the campaign activists. During the campaign 1.5 km of coastal area was cleaned, 6 cubic meters of waste - collected.
– It is not the first year that the team of “Krasny Kotelshchik” pays attention to environmental issues. TKZ is an active participant of the All-Russian Eco-Marathon “Processing” targeted at wastepaper collection. The company annually supports municipal environmental projects. It regularly carries out campaigns on cleaning of the company territory, – emphasizes Ivan Nikitin, the leader of TKZ Youth Council. – The Water of Russia campaign is a new activity for us which we plan to support actively. The value of such all-Russian initiative and its usefulness for the unique water bodies is confirmed with the figures: in 2019 participants of the Campaign set the record having cleaned from waste 24 200 km of coasts which is a little bit more than half the length of the Earth equator.
