Nampak Bevcan, Nampak DivFood and Collect-a-Can are pleased to announce their joint title sponsorship of the ‘Trekking for Trash’ initiative under the CANdo umbrella which kicks off in October 2012. 'Trekking for Trash’ is a courageous 3000km trek on foot by social adventurers Michael Baretta and Camilla Howard along the South African coast line from Alexander Bay on the Namibian border, to Kosi Bay on the Mozambican border. The trek will take approximately seven months and will see the duo collecting and recycling litter while engaging with and educating communities along the way. The intention of this expedition is to get people to notice the amount of litter in our country and to create an awareness of the impact it has on the environment so that they will ultimately stop littering. Nampak’s sponsorship of CANdo Trekking for Trash includes financial, product and strategic support. “We believe that lending our support to this project is not only necessary, but it meets our commitment to recycling, which is our businesses’ license to exist,” comments Erik Smuts, Managing Director of Nampak Bevcan.
