Richard Roger once said, “the only way foward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved”

On the 3rd of JunZandspruit cleanup e in celebration of world environment day, I held a community cleanup in Zandspruit.

Zandspruit is an informal settlement northwest of Johannesburg, with an estimated 15 000 shacks. The residence live in unbearable conditions, surrounded by an unhealthy environment. To counteract this situation I got some help from the community members to help clean up the surrounding areas and  in return for their kind gesture we got Romz Delights, a restaurant in Muldersdrift to sponsor them lunch for the day.

Within the few hours we collected over a thirty bags of garbage and are in the process of sorting and recycling.Zandspruit cleanupIMG_3532
