Sustainable Living is A SMART Life style …… and a MUST.

Growing world population poses pressures on our planet’s resources and environmental pollution. We take much for granted and this is not sustainable. We need to change our mind-set, reduce our food waste and the use of single-use materials. We need to adopt practical and affordable alternatives to minimize our impact on our planet. The widespread use of single-use packaging in combination with low recycling waste infrastructure is taking its toll. It is impacting our environment, our soil, our fresh water source, human health and the economy.

It is predicted that by the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans. At this this event we offer you new insights and practical solutions, which will support you to make positive changes in your personal life and in your work environment.
