“As superheroes – says Dr. Gaetano Castaldo, Marketing Manager of Nuova Erreplast – we aim to bring children and families closer together, raising awareness of environmental sustainability issues, through the use and recycling of materials, focusing attention on the surprising and unsuspected “second lives” that plastic can have after proper treatment. Supersostenibili is a project that falls within the scope of a comprehensive social responsibility plan put in place by the New Erreplast, company that I have the honor to represent. I also thank GeVi Napoli Basket for the sensitivity shown and for the willingness to enhance our partnership with local initiatives”.
“Plastic – adds Antonella Marzocchella, Industrial Chemist of Nuova Erreplast – has been a cornerstone of my profession for fifteen years. During my training I met the “PP”, the famous Moplen who in the sixties revolutionized homes around the world. For children I will transform into Tottonella, the superheroine that prioritizes the use of plastic because it is the most sustainable and recyclable material and that will demonstrate how respect for the environment starts from the use, indeed the correct reuse of all materials, the plastic in primis”.
Statement by the President of Gevi Napoli Basket, Federico Grassi: “Our vision and corporate strategy are also aimed at protecting the environment around us by carrying out our work in an ethical and safe way, and above all aimed at efficient business management. We are proud to participate in this wonderful initiative promoted by Nuova Erreplast, a leading company in its sector in Campania, and involving schools.
