TWTC Footprint March 2015 - Think 3R!!!

BY Vicky du Toit

Our planet is in danger and one of the most serious threats is the amount of waste we generate.  Our wasteful nature has led to the reduction of available natural resources, pollution of land, air and water and a serious battle for space to put all our waste. 

 

One of the ways to combat all of the above mentioned problems is to recycle.  Recycling not only benefits the environment by saving our resources and keeping our earth clean, it also assists in job creation, a definite advantage for our economy.    

 

At TWTC, we strive to uphold the 3R culture (reduce, reuse, recycle) by investing in our youth.  The Schools Recycling Project started in 2009 and has since grown immensely.  The project is based on the following slogan; "tell me and I'll forget, show me and I may not remember, involve me and I'll understand."  With this in mind, we have formulated a programme that enables children to develop a "hands-on" approach to recycling.  Assembly talks, cleanup campaigns and depot tours are a few of the many educational tools that we use to motivate recycling.
