Think twice before you print
Think about the environment
On 5 June, World Environment Day, the SADC Social Responsibility Club launched a paper-recycling project Going Greener – Recycling Paper to which you are all invited to adhere to.
For this project, your good offices are asked to throw used paper (PAPER ONLY) in duly labelled containers that have been placed by the kitchen area. The containers are labelled FOR RECYCLING - PAPER ONLY. The paper will then be collected by a paper recycling company.
You are also invited to adhere to other initiatives that will be carried out throughout the duration of the project.
