OUR DUTY

Why we do what we do?

Pollution can sometimes be overlooked as a social problem. It is a social problem as it is caused by human behaviour. Communities who are less developed often choose to have basic services such as receiving clean water and electricity and waste management is in most cases is not a priority. This becomes a problem as the waste is mounting which will cause bigger problems for future generations than what we are experiencing now.

In most rural areas there is no designated legal dumping site which causes a problem of people not knowing where to take their waste. We have noted that education and awareness needs to happen in order to address this issue as a collective with a common goal. If recycling does not take place most of the land will end up as dumping sites. Burning the waste does not solve the problem as it creates air pollution and some materials like plastic still remain after being burnt.

Waste materials have value once they are sourced and put back into the value chain of creating end products instead of ending up at a landfill. The Green Aim’s mission is to get communities to support our cause in advocating for the environment, becoming its mouthpiece in order to protect it for the future generations.  Pollution is a global matter which affects us all.

What we do?

Recycling/Repurposing/Reusing

We recycle, reuse or repurpose the waste materials that we recover. Recycling is crucial to our call as this will help expand the lifespan of landfills which are already filling up. We intend on setting up a drop off centre so that it may be convenient for communities to recycle.

Environmental education

Waste materials have value once they are sourced and put back into the value chain of creating end products instead of ending up at a landfill. The Green Aim’s mission is to get communities to support our cause in advocating for the environment, becoming its mouthpiece in order to protect it for the future generations. We stand by the National Environmental Management Waste Act. Pollution is a global matter which affects us all.

Awareness Campaigns

Community engagement programmes; meeting with communities and having a Waste Discussion to discuss how waste affects them in their communities and creating possible solutions that can have a positive impact on them and the environment.
