Hornbach has not sold any fireworks in its project markets since last year. This is not only to protect animals and the environment, but also to eliminate injuries that can be caused by improper handling.
“We are constantly reviewing our product range, taking into account the concept of long-term sustainability. We are in dialogue with our customers and open to initiatives and proposals for change. We have addressed the issue of fireworks sales and made clear decisions. We are proud that in each of our stores, those interested will find everything for their projects and construction plans, and this is the role that Hornbach wants to play in the future. projects, “commented Hornbach ‘s decision by David Kolář, Marketing Director for the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Annual fireworks and firecrackers adversely affect the environment, including animals. Hornbach’s decision is acknowledged, for example, by the Czech Union for Nature Conservation. “People should learn to have fun so as not to burden their surroundings – neighbors, nature, animals … Unfortunately, fireworks go against all these principles. It hurts with its noise, flashes and fumes. It hurts, but to ban its sale and use. We appreciate every voluntary decision to take fireworks out of our lives, “said Petr Stýblo, spokesman for the Czech Union for Nature Conservation.
A spokesman for the Czech Ornithological Society, Věra Sychrová, also confirms his words: “It is a well-known fact that fireworks have a negative effect on domestic animals such as dogs and cats. However, wildlife It is only gratifying that Hornbach has decided not to sell fireworks and not to promote unnecessary stress in animals, which can sometimes lead to death. People are becoming more and more aware of the dark side of costly pyrotechnic parties, which are not so crucial for citizens and can be done without them. aware of man’s belonging to other living beings. “
Fireworks also have their risks for the users themselves. Improper handling and non-compliance with the instructions for use, often in combination with the influence of drugs, lead to unnecessary injuries. “During the Christmas holidays, and especially the New Year’s celebrations, our rescuers go to accidents caused by fireworks regularly. In the last year, due to anti-epidemic restrictions, we have seen” only “nine of these accidents on New Year’s Eve. which, unfortunately, tend to have lasting devastating consequences, “says Jana Poštová, spokeswoman for the Medical Rescue Service of the capital city of Prague.
Among the problems caused by fireworks, it is necessary to emphasize the waste, which subsequently often remains on the streets, although it belongs to the commonly accessible bins and collection containers for municipal waste.
Hornbach has been working on the environment and social sustainability throughout its existence. It supports various activities and innovative approaches, for example in school projects, but also actively participates in revitalizing and improving the environment of cities and municipalities.
