Local primary schools help maintain value of waste
The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) legislation, which recently came into effect, focuses on ensuring that the value of waste is never lost. It helps divert materials from landfills, requiring that these materials be recycled and reused instead. To help maintain the value of waste, primary school learners from twenty local schools in the Western Cape recycled 25,393.38kg of these materials during the INEOS Trash 4 Treats project this year. The competition, held from April to September 2021, culminated in an award ceremony last Friday at the winning schools. 15 Nov 2021 Read more

Trash 4 Treats: Rewarding sustainable habits
Keeping the environment clean is a learned behaviour that benefits us all. The INEOS Trash 4 Treats project teaches primary school learners the importance of recycling at a tender age to help them build positive habits for the long term. This year, following a successful pilot with ten schools, INEOS has expanded its project to an additional 20 schools in Phillipi, Belhar and Nyanga in the Western Cape. In return for the most recyclable waste collected, learners are rewarded with exciting treats, and schools stand a chance of winning their share of R60,000 in prize money to upgrade their facilities. 27 Aug 2021 Read more

The rise of cause marketing and its importance
The way that companies do business has changed for the foreseeable future. The pandemic has escalated the need for brands to play an authentic and active part in improving people's lives and redressing the damage done to the planet. Marketing should not just be about building brands and driving sales, but it should also endeavour to make a difference. This is called cause-related marketing, the symbiotic practice of promoting a brand whilst positively impacting people or the planet. 7 Jun 2021 Read more

Road travel gains popularity as the Covid-19 pandemic continues
South Africans are known for their love of adventure and the outdoors; we are a nation of travellers. Due to the pandemic, however, fewer people are travelling abroad and prefer to travel domestically instead. This, added to the fact that we're reluctant to fly because of the enclosed space in aeroplanes, means that many more vehicles are now travelling on our roads. Therefore, the South African Tyre Manufacturing Conference (SATMC) urges the public who will be travelling over the Easter holidays to do safety checks before they commence with their travels. 26 Mar 2021 Read more
