A YOUTH empowerment NGO, Vukuzenzele Youth Development, held Arbor Month celebrations in Murchison last week.

In an attempt to capture the essence of the event the organisation place felt they had the highest intensity of air pollution, they said.

“We planted trees on the N2 Harding main road near the Murchison Taxi Rank where there is a high volume of cars passing through and leaving gas that pollutes the air.

“By planting trees in that area we were trying to reduce the gas emissions to help in the fight against climate change, which is a global challenge,” said Thulile Cebisa from the organisation.

Cebisa said protecting the environment was the organisation’s main mission.

“We have an ongoing environmental project where we conduct clean-up campaigns, recycling waste and educating the community about the environmental impact of human behaviour.”
