A Hot date this June!
01 We all really need to get into the habit of recycling. So why not make a date to involve your school and start a recycling programme? Keep it simple. Appoint a green ambassador (either a teacher or a learner) who will be in charge, spread the word and start collecting paper, cardboard boxes, newspapers, toilet roll cores, cartons, plastic PET bottles and glass beverage bottles. Not only will you be doing your bit to help the environment but your school also stands a chance to win a share of R110 000 in prizes in the Mpact Recycling and Ronnie Recycler school competition. To enter, visit mpactrecycling.co.za or follow @MpactRecycling on Facebook and Twitter.
