Christel House South Africa received 40 school desks made from recycled waste, collected during the 2018 Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon. The Green Desk project, launched in 2006 by the environmental charity, WildTrust, recycles multi-layer, multi-film plastics and make school desks without using a drop of water. WildTrust donated more than 1 000 green desks to various schools through partnerships in pursuit of their vision for “A sustainable future for all.”According to a statement, the donated green desks tie in with the school’s efforts to become more environmentally responsible and teaching students to reduce, re-use and recycle. The school is also a long-standing partner of the MPact Recycling Programme where students can help raise funds for the school by practicing recycling. Adri Marais, Christel House chief executive officer, said they are truly grateful to the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon and WildTrust teams for donating the beautiful and eco-friendly green desks. “They are not just ergonomic and perfectly suited to our students’ needs, they also tell a sustainable story that will surely inspire many young minds,” said Marais.
