Green@Heart

Our concern for the environment and a healthy planet has led to our involvement in a number of green initiatives within the company to put environmental sustainable practices to use.  I encourage you to take responsibility to minimize your environmental impact and to consider using our easy solutions in your home or office. Change your perception that one person can not make a difference. If each  of us makes a small change, it will make a huge impact globally.

Turning your clutter into things that matter:
All the clutter and items that you no longer want is taken to a charity of your choice. If you do not specify a charity, it will be given to any of the following: Hospice, Tshwane Child Welfare, Irene Homes, Boitumelo Project or Tshwane Place of Safety. In most cases clothing is distributed to the needy and household items are sold in their charity shops.
