Drogas Latvia and Lithuania partnered with supplier, Henkel, for an exclusive project to build a children’s playground in the SOS village, a centre where orphans and special children live. Customers were invited to contribute to this meaningful project in two ways. First, they could bring in their empty Fa deodorant bottles and leave them in special containers in stores to be recycled and used later as construction material for the playground. The second way, was to purchase special Fa products, so that part of the proceeds would be donated to the cause.
Every year on 28 April, the entire world marks International Labour Protection Day. Its goal is to promote a safe working environment and healthy work for every employee. The team at Drogas were proud to participate.

Colleagues from Drogas also organised engaging activities for participants – like free make-up, photo-taking and free product samples.
For the fourth year in a row, Drogas organised the annual Occupational Health and Safety Week, with the goal of improving work and health safety awareness among employees. During that week, every employee was invited to learn more about personal and work safety. Employees in stores and offices participated in educational and fun activities daily, and also took part in competitions where they could win healthy lifestyle prizes.
