Two drives, drove by Danone Southern Africa, center around arriving at understudies matured 7-13 in municipality grade schools, and urge them to gather, clean and carry their pre-owned yogurt tubs to school.


In 2021, the One Desk One Child program gave 500 work areas produced using reused yogurt tubs to 100 schools in the Gauteng district. More than 19 tons of plastic were redirected from landfill through the assortment of north of 86 000 yogurt tubs.


Corporate undertakings administrator at Danone Southern Africa, Leanne Kiezer, says this year through the Tubs2Classrooms program they expect to gather sufficient yogurt tubs to create the blocks to fabricate two homerooms.


"Every study hall requires around 200 000 yogurt tubs. So to accomplish our objective to fabricate two study halls in 2022, we would have to gather close to a portion of 1,000,000 yogurt tubs. This is multiple times the quantity of tubs we gathered in 2021," she said.


Kiezer said together these two activities will arrive at north of 135 000 understudies.


Yogurt tubs are produced using high effect polystyrene, and keeping in mind that this material is recyclable, it is very light in weight, bringing about a low motivator for assortment.
