Under the auspices of the Minister of Environment, Mr. Hazem Malhas, Jordan Environment Society celebrated World Earth Day. These celebrations, which coincide with the world's celebrations on this occasion, aim at educating schools students and the public, attracting their attention to the importance and the need to preserve the environment we are living in.

The ceremony, which was held at Zaha Cultural Center, hosted a group of students from both private and public sectors and was sponsored by OFFTEC. The ceremony started with a speech by his Excellency's representative reiterating the role of students in preserving the environment, followed by an exhibition showcasing products of the recycling project, which was founded in 1995. The students then visited several sites in the city planting trees and greenery.

Mr. Basim Said, Managing Director of OFFTEC, further elaborated on this sponsorship saying:' in the celebration of our 100 years of business, we at OFFTEC have decided to dedicate this year to giving back to the society. The environment was one of our main areas of interest, and we have chosen to support the World Earth Day celebrations as it has mainly attracted the young generation and the leaders of the future.'
