MARINA Sea Salt, in association with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM), will be running a recycling campaign in Port Elizabeth primary schools for the next few months to educate children about the importance of recycling.

Swartkops Sea Salt (Pty) Ltd, better known as Marina Sea Salt, officially launched the Shine Your Light Recycling and Re-using Awareness Project at Kleinskool Primary School on Monday, May 8.

The project is associated with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Go Green campaign and will run until August 31.

The Shine Your Light recycling campaign will involve 10 primary schools in the Nelson Mandela Bay.

The objective is to collect as many empty Marina Lighthouse bottles as possible and place them in a specially designed Lighthouse Recycle bin at participating schools.

At the end of the campaign, Marina Sea Salt will buy back the empty Lighthouse bottles from the school at R2 each.

The learner who collects the most Lighthouse bottles will win a “red” bicycle and the learners in the class that collects the most empty Lighthouse bottles will each win a meal voucher from McDonald’s or KFC worth R50.

The school that collects the most empty Lighthouse bottles will win an additional R5 000.

Participating schools include Kleinskool Primary, Cotswold Preparatory School, Walmer Primary, Mount Pleasant Primary School, Rowallan Park Primary School, Verkenner Primary School, Westering Primary School and Bethelsdorp Road Primary School.These schools will ensure the campaign reaches more than 7 000 learners. – REPORTER
