Cooperation with TEMA Foundation
"A Sapling for Each Exclusive Product"
We planted a sapling to fight desertification in Karapınar, Konya, for each customer who purchased the Exclusive series dining room and bedroom furniture we produced in 2007. In cooperation with TEMA, 1,000 saplings were planted in Karapınar, the only desert area in Turkey, and we issued a certificate to the customers who purchased these products.
Waste Paper Recycling Project
We gathered the papers used in Doğtaş Kelebek offices in special paper waste bins instead of regular waste bins and sent them to TEMA for recycling. The paper waste bins were set for distribution to elementary schools, and were designed to raise environmental awareness among children, using special warning messages.
Numerous plays have been staged in the Doğtaş Theater in Biga, Çanakkale. The theater was built by Doğtaş in 2001, and made a considerable contribution to training performers in Biga.
Among those plays, "Köprülü Hamdi Bey," "155 Alo İmdat," and "Keloğlan" were staged more than a hundred times and received with great appreciation.
The Çanakkale 1915 Mobile Museum
As a company founded and rooted in Çanakkale, Doğtaş organized an important social responsibility campaign.
The Çanakkale 1915 Mobile Museum was opened by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan with a ceremony in Çanakkale on March 18, 2010. To date, the museum has visited almost every province in Turkey under the main sponsorship of Doğtaş.
The first and only environmentally-conscious furniture brand in the world...
Among the leaders of the industry with its original designs and quality as well as a sustainable living and operating practices, Doğtaş has blazed another trail by signing the United Nations Global Compact and became a voluntary party to this globally-recognized framework on January 6, 2011.
Doğtaş was the first and only furniture manufacturer to sign this compact, which has been signed by many leading companies that sustain the global economy. Thus, Doğtaş took its place among the giants of the global economy that promise to "maintain a human-oriented and environmentally-conscious approach to all business processes, daily activities, applications, and projects with a transparent and accountable management concept."
Support for young entrepreneurs...
As the furniture sponsor of the TV contest aired on TRT Haber, "Bir Fikrin mi Var Türkiye" (Have You Got an Idea, Turkey), in which the craziest ideas are exchanged and entrepreneurs and inventors take the stage to turn their dreams into reality, Kelebek continues to support young entrepreneurs.
The contest has been broadcast to tens of thousands of entrepreneurs and an audience of millions both in Turkey and worldwide over the last 10 years. Kelebek will furnish the winner's office.
Stop Violence against Women
TEKSEM actors, who stage the play "Cebimden Kocam Düştü" (I Dropped My Husband from My Pocket) to draw attention to the issue of violence against women and improve the image of people with disabilities, also take to the stage at events supported by Kelebek Mobilya.
