2012-09-03 00:00

AN estimated 700 people joined Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and the Wildlands Conservation Trust in an attempt to “green” eSikhawini and inculcate a culture among the youth of being environmentally friendly, on Friday.

The campaign started at eSikhawini Mall, where the participants picked up litter and thereafter at 16 local schools that were given recycling bins. In addition, 1 000 trees were planted.

According to Ezemvelo spokesperson Maureen Zimu, the campaign is targeted at local schools so that pupils can be encouraged at a young age to live in a clean environment, plant indigenous trees and recycle.
