Green­pop solves eco­brick query

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - HOME -

I HAVE been amazed by the amount of feed­back I have had about how to get rid of moles. Maybe I should start a gar­den­ing col­umn. Many peo­ple have asked me to send them copies of the ar­ti­cle, or for fur­ther ad­vice.

I am only too happy to help with any rea­son­able re­quest, or to send you copies of pre­vi­ous col­umns.

I have also had fur­ther queries about eco­bricks. Ner­isha, from Dur­ban, (it’s great to see I am read all over the coun­try) sent this:

I came across your ar­ti­cle about eco­bricks. It is a great idea and I hope to get started.

Do you know of any drop-off points in Dur­ban?

I bat­tled with this query and even­tu­ally called the en­vi­ron­men­tal group Green­pop as they had a re­lated link on their web­site.

They kindly sent me this:

Pick n Pay hy­per­mar­kets are now na­tion­wide drop-off points. Pick n Pay will be col­lect­ing on be­half of the En­dan­gered Wildlife Trust.

They sug­gested readers look on Pick n Pay’s web­site for more in­for­ma­tion.

Green­pop were so help­ful that I think it only fair to make you aware of their lat­est cam­paign and ask you to get in­volved:

Keen to get your hands dirty? Come help us plant 12 000 trees at Re­for­est Fest 2019. Get your tick­ets at www.re­for­est­fest.com. Not able to at­tend? You can still sup­port by do­nat­ing. Have a treemen­dous day.

Make eco­bricks by tightly pack­ing plas­tic cold drink bot­tles with re­cy­cled plas­tic.
