Zero Waste

There is plenty of waste in Mpophomeni.  Much of it is very useful and can have another life. We compost the cardboard, turn bread bags into skipping ropes, mesh bags into balls and newspaper into hockey sticks. Plastic bottles stuffed with sweet wrappers become eco-bricks and crisp packets become colourful curtains

Many of the practical solutions regarding re-use of waste to create curtains, doormats or hats  and food growing will increase income earning possibilities.

In 2016, we are building a Recycling Centre in Mhlongo Road to offer residents an alternative to dumping rubbish on the roadside and in the streams. Contact Zamile Mtambo for more information: 063 160 7587
