kruger National Park (KNP) in partnership with Total South Africa (Total SA) hosted the “Keep Kruger Clean” (KKC) campaign at Luphisi, a village outside Nelspruit yesterday July 04, 2018. The aim of this campaign is to educate and create awareness about the dangers of spoiling the environment such as national parks and other natural habitats. The campaign is a continuation of the World Environmental Day (WED) commemoration which takes place on 5 June every year.
“This year’s WED theme “beat plastic pollution – if you can’t reuse it, refuse it”, urges people to explore sustainable alternatives meant to reduce the production and excessive use of single use plastic products. South African government introduced the pricing of plastic a few years ago to beat pollution; and continues to raise the price to encourage recycling”, said the KNP’s GM: Communications and Marketing, William Mabasa on behalf of the KNP Management.
