"No More Plastic"

Translated from the local language isiXhosa, “iphelile plastic” means something like “No more plastic” - on the streets and in nature - that is our goal. The inadequate waste disposal system and a lack of environmental awareness in the community require sustainable solutions in order to get the waste problem under control long term.

Clean-Up

In the first step, we started a clean-up campaign in which we, with the support of community members, collect and dispose of the garbage from the bushes, streets and residential areas, as well as remove illegal garbage dump sites.

Recycling

In the second step, we would like to establish a sustainable recycling system to ensure that at least some of the waste will be recycled in the future. Meal vouchers are intended to motivate the people of Paterson to collect their waste instead of throwing it away in the bush or on the street.

Creating
Awareness

Together with the city authorities, we would like to work on a better waste disposal service and also support the BornFree Foundation Team - who, among other things, takes care of including the topic in the curriculum in local schools - in creating more awareness and engagement.

Financial Support

We use donations primarily for meal vouchers. We also want to use it to finance dumpsters that will replace illegal landfills in Paterson in the long term.
