Western Cape MEC wants change in waste habits ahead of Earth Day

We need to shift our thinking and habits to reduce, reuse, and recycle as far as possible, or else our inaction will result in further endangering species and degrading our natural habitat

Environmental affairs and development planning MEC Anton Bredell has called on citizens to do even more to save the environment on annual Earth Day, to be celebrated on April 22.

This year’s Earth Day will be held under the theme “Protect our species”, and he called on all citizens to be aware of and work together to protect endangered and threatened species.

The Western Cape government, in partnership with the national department of environmental affairs, embarked on the “Good Green Deeds” campaign, which sought to change people’s attitudes and behaviour towards responsible management of waste, keeping their neighbourhood clean, green, and safe.

We need to shift our thinking and habits to reduce, reuse, and recycle as far as possible, or else our inaction will result in further endangering species and degrading our natural habitat,” Bredell said.
