1 June 2022 during the Children's Day, brought the finale of the Tree for Bottles project organised by the Aliplast Group in cooperation with the Lublin Environmental Protection Agency, under the media patronage of TVP3 Lublin.
The project was carried out on the occasion of the International Earth Day. We collected over 8,000 bottles and distributed a lot of trees. Schools and kindergartens from Lublin, as well as the Employees of our Companies participated in the project.
The project finale was an opportunity to meet and award the diplomas, but also to have fun together during the Ecological Picnic organised during the Children's Day.
That day the competition for the Eco Toy was over – once again our children astonished us with their creativity - horses, people, whale, octopus made of plastic bottles, nuts, and strings - they really made an impression. Their works were so good that they were all awarded – and the gallery of works, already in the latest issue of Aliplast News.
Ecological quizzes, spatial eco-games, fashion shows, dance competitions, horseback rides – we could just go on and on but better see yourselves how much fun we had.
Soon comes the information about the next events organised to promote an ecological lifestyle – stay tuned.
On May 15, there was a Fishing Picnic organized by the Aliplast Fishing Group at the Eco-Torf in Ludwin.The official start of the season resulted in a fairly large number of caught fish. A modest fishing gift was prepared for the Participants who caught the largest specimens.
The biggest fish caught with the spinning method during the meeting can be proud of Łukasz - a pike, 84 cm long and weighing 5 kg.In the case of the float method, the largest fish taken was Krasnopióra, caught by my friend Monika.
The youngest participants had the opportunity to try their hand at fishing using the spinning method. The Aliboat and our friend Jacek's fishing pontoon, where everyone could see the principle of the fishfinder, was very popular.
Congratulations to all Participants!
On Sunday, May 15th, the competition at the Wzory fishery ended. Our Aliplast Fishing Team was ready for the start.

This is a good result considering that 18 teams participated in the competition.The three largest fish caught in the team counted towards the classification. Gentlemen: Michał, Paweł and Sylwester were classified with carps weighing 15.6 kg, 13.2 kg and 10.4 kg. In addition, a few smaller fish were caught and returned to the water in good condition after weighing and disinfecting.The first "carp competition" of our Aliplast Fishing Team and a place just behind the podium. It may seem like the worst possible place, but the three of us at the Aliplast Fishing Team are excited to say that this is just the beginning and it will be better next time. We keep our fingers crossed!

We act and help each day! Bone Marrow Donor’s Day with Aliplast! The registration of potential donors of haematopoietic stem cells or bone marrow for each patient qualified for a transplant took place in Aliplast on 11 May 2022 (Wednesday). We are carrying out this our action with Budmar.
Are you healthy? You are invited to our consulting outlet: join the fight against blood tumours and perhaps someone will get a chance of life thanks to you in a few months!
Who can be a donor?
Every healthy person aged between 18 and 55 and not heavily overweight can register. It only takes a moment and consists of an initial medical examination, filling out a personal data form and a swab taken from the inner side of a cheek. Swabs will be taken by the qualified medical staff. The collected sample will make it possible to determine antigenic compatibility traits and if the donor’s genetic code corresponds to the genetic code of the patient the transplant will be made. All those willing to register should bring an identity document with the PESEL number.

The Aliplast Group is not only a market leader in the European aluminium window door market. It is above all the people who help us to reach our increasingly ambitious goals.
The employees are our greatest value. They are the ones we are most interested in. This is reflected in the confidence and high job satisfaction. An excellent example of this is Mr. Ryszard Gomułka, who has worked with us and helped us to grow over the past 16 years and is now going into a well-deserved retirement!
Mr. Richard, retirement is the best time to realize these “unfulfilled” dreams, and we wish you that with all our heart.
Thank you for 16 years of work at Aliplast! We wish you much strength and health for the realization of your dreams, serenity, and positive and joyful moments in these difficult times.

When asked about his post-race impressions, one of the participants said to us: “Given that it was the first competition this year, we are both satisfied and motivated to continue with training efforts so as to be even better.
