We are in a special situation. We are shaping our environment, we are responsible for biodiversity. Humankind’s impact on our planet is so decisive that we are playing key role in its future. Our objective is to focus people’s attention to the management and recycling of trash that is one of the most important issues of our age.
Stats has shown that only 20-30% of trash is recycled in general and that more than half of it (58%) ends up in rubbish dumps. This proportion should be reversed as soon as possible by selecting and recycling more and more. In Africa we produce one kilo of trash per person every day. This is quite a frightening figure, however, it can be reduced easily. Trash can be of value, we can save 30% of what we are putting in trash cans these days if the background recycling systems works properly. The necessary infrastructure is being developed.
GreenHubAfrica aims to focus attention to values hidden in recyclable material. We need to recognize and evaluate it, then recycle as much as we can on a high level. We would like to share and pass on this attitude to as many people as we can reach. Our message is that instead of waste and consumption euphoria, it is environmental awareness that provides long term solutions for homo sapiens sapiens (wise man).
Spread the news, be creative, draw attention to the importance of recycling with the help of art. Be the messengers of the next generation.
