‘Projeto Arborizar’/Arborization Project is an initiative aimed at increasing the number of trees in the municipality of Montenegro, in the State of Rio Grande do Sul. Polo Films has supported this project which, during its first stage, has planted seedlings on behalf of our company in different sites around the city. The project also includes visits to city schools to explain to children the importance of having plenty of trees in cities.
Polo Films also supports the ‘Tampinha Legal/Cool Caps’ project, a socio-environmental and educational program organized by the Brazilian plastic processing industry. This initiative has collected plastic lids that would be otherwise discarded in litters and sent them to recycling plants so they may be put to new uses. In addition to ensuring and adequate destination to thousands of small plastic lids, this project has generated financial resources to many charity organizations. Polo Films has stimulated lid collection actions among its collaborators and has provided transportation of donations to collection stations.
