Tilia Homes donates high visibility PPE to Moldova

24th September 2021

Tilia Homes has worked in partnership with Kier Group to recycle all its old high visibility PPE to the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport (EASST).

Following Tilia Homes’ rebrand from Kier Living after its sale from Kier Group to Terra Firma, the business had a large quantity of branded PPE that could no-longer be used on site.

To ensure the PPE was recycled and re-used, Tilia Homes worked with UK-based charity EASST, whose mission is to save lives and prevent injuries by making road transport safer. Through the scheme, the PPE will be sent to rural regions of Moldova where there is no street lighting and vehicles, animals and people share the road making the risk of road crashes particularly high. The all-weather high visibility PPE items will be donated to local villages to improve farmers’ safety on the roads. 

David Bridges, CEO of Tilia Homes, comments: “We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to work with EASST to significantly reduce the quantity of good quality, usable PPE clothing going into landfill sites in the UK. Recycling opportunities can pop up in the least expected situations and as a business we will continue to work with and support different communities whilst looking at ways to reduce our carbon footprint.”
