Committed to sustainable initiatives, Sanita took part in Jounieh International Festival’s new ‘Green’ day initiative on 23 June 2013. The Lebanese hygiene disposables manufacturer put up a 3×3 m booth called Sanita Eco-Museum, presenting environmentally friendly Sanita hygiene disposable products, such as Natura sustainable facial and toilet tissue paper disposables.
Sanita representatives met with summer festival attendees at the booth, while 2 representatives, dressed in tree costumes and on rollerblades, distributed free Natura pocket tissue paper to participants across Jounieh’s old roads.
‘Go Jounieh’ Green Day Activities
The event, under the slogan ‘Go Jounieh’, brought together families and friends at Jounieh’s coastal roads for a day of biking, skating, and other activities while enjoying natural surroundings. The municipality closed Jounieh’s old roads from all vehicles, to help Lebanese citizens and tourists appreciate the environment.
Participants brought or rented on-site bikes, roller blades seg-ways, and skateboards as means of transportation. Professional trainers were on-call to assist beginners and ensure safety. The event also featured many other green-themed activities, such as shows, parades and a ‘Professional Bike Race’.
