Crowd Effort

The Crowd Effort 2021 is a collective initiative organized by Braskem, which gathers team members and guests to carry out volunteer activities in their local communities.

WeCare Philadelphia - Braskem Cobb’s Creek Park Clean-up Event

As stated in a previous email sent on August 24th, WeCARE week is a part of Braskem’s Global Volunteer Program, and it is coming up next month! This is a week dedicated to action and education around the circular economy. This year WeCARE week will be held September 18th – 25th, and Braskem team members around the world are invited and encouraged to participate in local crowd efforts and educational sessions dedicated to advancing a circular economy.



 

We are offering a volunteer clean-up event through the Fairmount Park Conservancy on Thursday, September 23rd from 9AM to 12PM at Cobb’s Creek Trail for our Philadelphia team members.
