DHL Express, the world’s leading provider of international express shipping services, is celebrating its commitment to environmental sustainability. On Saturday, January 22, the community is invited to a free, outdoor event at DHL’s Corporate Office in Plantation.
The eco-conscious extravaganza will feature a variety of Green-themed activities and prize giveaways for the whole family, including:
• Take Home a Free Tree: DHL is giving away 100 trees and 50 succulent plants to local guests at the event.
• Ride in an e-Cargo Cycle: Take a ride on one of DHL’s e-Cargo Cycles. These cycles are used for deliveries across Miami. Each one deployed enables DHL to take one conventional delivery van off the road, reducing road traffic, noise and pollution while still providing fast efficient deliveries for customers.
• See Solar in Action: The parking lot is home to a mobile solar-powered pop-up store, which was developed to provide greater accessibility and convenience for customers in the local market. The 100% off-the-grid retail store is boosted by a solar-powered system with backup batteries charged at the local service center, helping to reduce energy consumption and contributing to DHL’s mission to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
Local community residents or visitors in the area are welcome to stop by on Saturday to #GoGreen! Guests will also receive a special GoGreen goodie bag from DHL, until supplies last. There will also be fun entertainment for younger visitors such as including magic shows, toy car obstacle course competitions, arts-and-crafts activities, and face painting.
