Walk on waste side: reduce single-use plastic

2019-06-27 06:00

SPAR invites Kirkwood Wildlife festival- goers to Take a Walk on the Waste Side, referring to their project of reducing the use of single-use plastic in society.

“This year, SPAR is setting up a maze, where festival-goers will be able to discover a number of alternative ways to use plastic and we hope this will continue the education we would like to achieve with this theme,” said SPAR EC sponsorships and events manager Alan Stapleton.

He added that SPAR Eastern Cape’s commitment to supporting the local community, was behind their support of the Wildsfees, saying it all began with their Choose Local campaign.

“This is a project we started a few years ago where the focus is to ensure we give back to the communities in which we are involved,” he said.

“The Wildsfees, in turn, ploughs funds back into the local community so that fits in perfectly with the SPAR ethos. The nature of the festival is also about bringing families together, which is another important pillar for SPAR,” said Stapleton.

Besides polishing an already established product, Stapleton said there were plenty of innovations which would thrill the patrons, adding to the excitement of the festival.
