    Make a difference at ground-level.

    The river starts at home

    Decisions you make in your own home can have a significant impact on the environment, our water and our own carbon footprint.

    What are you adding to the water cycle?

    Harmful chemicals and cleaning agents require more chemicals to treat at Waste Water Treatment Works.

    By choosing natural alternatives in your own home you can alleviate the pressure to treat the waste before its returned into our rivers and dams.

    Our partnership with Nu-Eco sets about to educate and offer an alternative.

    We are working in both rural and urban settings to help change a mindset.

    Refuse then recycle
    As consumers, you have the real power to lobby change.

    Refuse the plastic bag. Why we still have them around I don’t know – there are so many alternatives.

    Demand better packaging. Fruit and Vegetables don’t need to be wrapped in single-use plastic.

    Separate your recycling at home. This waste is someone’s wealth.

    Cardboard, Cans, Glass and some plastic (like cooldrink and milk bottles) are easily recyclable – but you need to ensure this gets to a reputable recycler or informal waste collector who will earn an income, even just a little each day.
