It is only when something is lost, that we start to realize that we need to take certain measures to enforce change. Unfortunately, it’s usually too late. The same applies to waste. In Cape Town alone, 6,000 tons of waste is produced daily, which translates to between 1.7kg and 2kg per household. But, once this waste is collected and out of site, most of us don’t bother to know where it goes and the impact it has on our environment.
