Howick High School partnership with Enviro Timbers

Howick High School partnership with Enviro Timbers
At the beginning of the year, Howick High School began a partnership with local business, Enviro Timbers, where the school would encourage the collection of plastic milk bottles to be delivered to Enviro Timbers for recycling. Howick High’s pupils and parents have rallied together and a grand total of 420 kilograms of plastic has been collected (approximately 11 000 plastic bottles), earning Howick High a new bench for their grounds.

Howick High School’s Eco Club were delighted to receive a new bench from Heidi Boyd of Enviro Timbers recently in return for the school’s collection of plastic milk bottles. Pictured left to right at the back are Josh van der Linde, Mr Martin Gardner, Nokubongwa Mlambo, Mrs Heidi Boyd, Enrico van Zyl and seated Amy Evans, Chane Manthe and Zinhle Gwala.

Enviro Timbers was formed in 2013 with the vision to help reduce plastic waste in South Africa and create employment. They manufacture recycled plastic timber from locally sourced plastic waste and are located in Merrivale. Any members of the community wishing to support this initiative are most welcome to collect their rinsed plastic milk bottles and add them to Howick High School’s collection. Further information on Enviro Timbers can be found at www.envirotimbers.com.
