When it comes to taking care of the earth, the Yves Rocher Foundation has a special place in its heart for women who are doing their part. Since 2005 the foundation has been internationally recognizing women dedicated to preserving the environment for all of us with its Women of the Earth Awards.
Yesterday Jacques Rocher, President of Yves Rocher Foundation was at Yves Rocher Türkiye's "Women of the Earth" award ceremony which took place at the French Palace in Istanbul.
To mark the special evening, Mr.Rocher stwwarted off his speech by saying "Kadınlar gününüz kutlu olsun" (Happy Woman's Day) in Turkish.
As the owner of one of the 26 nominee projects (Cats of Istanbul), we enjoyed the celebratory event very much and would like to thank Yves Rocher Türkiye once again for their commitment in supporting women across the world in their efforts to make the world a greener place.
The Foundation runs the Women of the Earth contest in fifteen countries across Europe, North America and North Africa. The Foundation has already awarded more than 230 prizes to women working to protect and promote the plant world in more than 50 countries around the world.
