What if the pollution of air, land, and water could stop. Only now that we have been forced to stop and look at the world through different eyes, have we seen the impact human activity has on the environment and the world we live in.

As we have seen on the news during the national lockdown, the earth can breathe now. Skies are clear leaving us with cleaner air to breathe, the birds are enjoying the oceans and seas again, greatly benefitting from our absence. In some states, even water quality appears to have improved. In Cape Town, we have even seen penguins walking the streets due to no human activity.

Fish are now visible in small canals as the water becomes clearer every day without us polluting the cities with vehicle emissions and fabrics polluting the air. The forced shutdown of the nation, gives nature a chance to rebuild, reform and breathe.

These are only a few things we took for granted by being so busy every day that we haven't taken the time to appreciate the things nature has to offer. sa zero waste has aimed for Zero Waste for a long time and with your co-operation, we can make this possible.

Recycling Paper – Your First Step To Make A Difference

Thinking about the amount of paper we use on a daily basis, whether it is in the office, at school or at home, is often something we take for granted. But have we thought about the impact it has on the environment?

Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 26mᶟ of water, 2.3mᶟ of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil and 4,100-kilowatt hours of electricity. Recycling paper reduces the number of raw materials consumed on a daily basis. This means that fewer trees are being cut down for paper production. By recycling paper, you can contribute to this serious problem we are facing global warming and air pollution. Recycling paper constitutes a 74% reduction in gas emissions and a 35% reduction in water-polluting emissions.

Saves landfill space – Landfills are becoming overfull with little or no space for new waste. The aim is the reduction of the environmental impact of waste, during the manufacturing, converting /printing, collecting, sorting and recycling processes to ensure the optimal and environmentally sound recycling of used paper and board products. By recycling paper, you can contribute to improved air and water quality.

The process of paper Waste Recycling involves mixing used paper with water to break it down. It is then chopped up and heated, which breaks it down further into strands of cellulose, a type of organic plant material, this resulting mixture is called the pulp, or slurry. It is strained through screens, which remove any glue or plastic that may still be in the mixture then cleaned, de-inked, bleached, and mixed with water. Then it can be made into new paper. The same fibres can be recycled about seven times, but they get shorter every time and eventually are strained out.

SA Zero Waste is the company of choice when it comes to recycling paper and we can work in conjunction with companies, schools and hospitals that want to make a difference.

SA Zero Waste is registered and fully accredited with: The INSTITUTE of WASTE MANAGEMENT in SOUTHERN AFRICA (IWMSA) and as such, we are able to provide our clients with a Certificate of Compliance in terms of the relevant regulations and statutes, thereby ensuring that the respective company has followed all relevant legal protocols, incumbent upon them.

Improper Waste Disposal – The Effects On Human Life And The Environment

Waste management is the precise name for the collection, transportation, disposal or recycling and monitoring of waste. This term is assigned to the material, waste material that is produced through human being activity.

Improper waste disposal not only has an impact on humans but also on the environment. When waste disposal isn’t done correctly, it can affect the following:

Soil contamination – Soil contamination has a harmful effect on human health. It will increase the exposure to toxic and harmful chemicals thus increasing health threats to people living nearby and on the degraded land. Living, working or playing in the contaminated soil can lead to respiratory diseases, skin diseases, and other diseases.

Water contamination – The main problem caused by water pollution is that it kills organisms that depend on these water bodies. Dead fish, crabs, birds and sea gulls, dolphins, and many other animals often wind up on beaches, killed by pollutants in their habitat. Pollution disrupts the natural food chain as well.

Pollution – Pollution not only affects humans by destroying their respiratory, cardiovascular and neurological systems; it also affects the nature, plants, fruits, vegetables, rivers, ponds, forests, animals, etc, on which they are highly dependent for survival. 

Effect on global warming – The emission of greenhouse gases particularly CO2 is leading to global warming. Every other day new industries are being set up, new vehicles come on roads and trees are cut to make way for new homes. All of them, in a direct or indirect way, lead to an increase in CO2 in the environment. 

Improper waste disposal has severe effects on not only the environment but on our future in this country. Having an experienced and licenced professional waste disposal company, like sa zero waste will ensure that the sustainable execution of legal protocol, pertaining to Waste Management is done correctly.
