The Jbay Recycling Project, a community programme situated in Pellsrus, received a R70 000 donation from the Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm. These much needed funds will be used to stock the swop shop with some high-value items to encourage local community children to save, recycle and ultimately be more aware of their environment. “This unique community programme teaches children a number of essential values about the worth of recyclable goods, saving, trading, independence and self worth,” said Marion Green-Thompson, Economic Development Manager for Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm.Items such as sports equipment, including balls, bats, skateboards and art supplies, which are not usually available due to the Project’s limited budget, can now be purchased by the local children with the funds earned from recyclable goods. “Children can swap tokens received from recyclable material for these much sought after goods that they would normally not be able to afford,” explained Tanya Lategan, project co-ordinator of the Jbay Recycling Project.
