ZERO WASTE BW unveils plans for greener Botswana

Waste Management specialists Prime Projects has revealed their Zero Waste BW initiative in a media briefing held in Gaborone.

This initiative, slated for launch in a two day symposium in October, will see the company embark on a drive to engage companies to adopt environmentally sustainable practices that drastically reduce the volume of solid waste being sent to landfills.

The 100% citizen owned company's initiative seeks to offer a full service to supply, install and service recycling stations to clients who support Zero Waste BW.

The Zero Waste BW Symposium will be led by industry experts in the field of recycling and waste management. During the symposium, speakers will address key issues relating to the subject and Prime Projects will also take the opportunity to showcase designs for the recycling stations.

Speaking at the logo reveal and media briefing, Marketing Manager at Prime Projects Whitney Molefi said, "Zero Waste BW will focus on a philosophy that embraces resource conservation efforts and accepting responsibility for environmental sustainability."

The guest speaker at the event Citizen Entrepreneurial Development Agency's Chief Executive Officer, Thabo Thamane said the vision of Zero Waste BW was laudable.

"When Prime Projects approached us and let us in on their Zero Waste BW initiative, we saw it fit to come on board and support this very noble cause. CEDA is open to investing in businesses that deal with waste and recycling, among many others," said Thamane.

He said, "I am looking forward to the symposium and I am encouraged by the assurance from Prime Projects that one of the many interesting topics that will be discussed at there, will be focused on showcasing the many business opportunities that exist in this industry."
The Zero Waste BW logo was unveiled and Molefi said Botswana's flora and fauna coupled with her rich history and heritage are depicted. "As we look back and celebrate 50 years it is imperative that we mark the beginning of our future 50. Zero Waste BW marks this significant shift with the numeric figure zero, within it encapsulating the past and future of Botswana.''

Driven by the global green fundamental principles of Reduce, Re-Use, Recycle; the Zero Waste BW Symposium is slated for October 27th and will also feature a fashion show with a difference where designers will be given the opportunity to showcase designs that are made from recycled material.
