Reduce, Reuse, Recycle AND Alleviate Poverty
South Africa's landfill sites are quickly reaching full capacity, however there is 1 solution, Recycling.
Effective waste management has many benefits not only to the environment but to communities as well. Seen on our streets daily salvaging recyclable materials are Waste Pickers. Their role, although not formalised, is incredibly valuable as they help to minimise the presence of waste materials in our communities.
We all have a part to play in alleviating poverty by separating our waste allowing the Waste Picker to take a good quality item to the collectors who in turn pay more for the items.
Gift of the Givers warehouses recycle items and contribute recyclable waste to community groups that use waste to make a living.
