Ecobricks for Mandela Day

■ Volunteer Wildfire Services (VWS) Jonkershoek Firebase participated in the EcoBrick project as part of its Mandela Day initiative, tying in with Plastic Free July. Members were encouraged to make EcoBricks by stuffing two-litre PET bottles with
single-use plastic. These EcoBricks are then used as building materials to create sustainable homes, schools and even furniture. Pictured is Bolander’s Norman McFarlane, handing over 24 EcoBricks to Natalie Jansen of Matie FM 92.6, on behalf of VWS Jonkershoek. Matie FM 92.6 will continue to be a drop-off point for EcoBricks
