We have such a beautiful world and yet it’s been tarnished with people’s rubbish. In 1950, the world’s population of 2.5 billion produced 1.5 million tons of plastic; in 2016, a global population of more than 7 billion people produced over 320 million tons of plastic. … Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans. This is just plastic alone. Over the last couple of years society has become more aware of environmental issues and have begun recycling but is it enough and are we doing what we can?
Angels in the Northern Cape has created an opportunity for members of the public to clean up their towns and neighbourhoods and Angels have up an infrastructure of local entrepreneurs across the Northern Cape province, all contributing in various small, but sustainable ways towards diverting waste from the local landfills. In this process they are benefiting from the access to our communal infrastructure, sales of commodities, up cycling, recycling and other green conscious activities.
Now you can be paid for recycling plastic, bottles, plastic packets, paper, bottles, tins, if in doubt recycle it. Visit our NoCRA initiative and find out how you can participate as a resident recycling and create jobs for people in the local area. Creating jobs in recycling not only cleans up the town but also helps to reduce crime in the community and it can also help those less fortunate earn money.
In our weekly virtual coffee we discuss vision boards and talk about the Nocra Recycling initiative
