The sustainability of the use of renewable resources is the core focus of our environmental policy. Safari fully supports all environmental concerns raised pertaining to our industry. We have an environmental management plan in place to reduceenergy consumption and to optimize the usage of raw materials.
We are currently running projects in the Southern Cape region where we are eradicating alien trees from catchment areas to improve water run-off into rivers and dams. All usable wood is recycled into charcoal and braai wood. We currently support six independent contractors who make a livelihood from this ‘recycling’ of alien wood.
We support clean-up projects with schools to promote a cleaner and hygienic living environment for all. We also have a paper-recycling programme in place where all funds are donated to schools.
The increasing demand for ‘green’ products has brought up the design of the New Safari Fire Stix firelighter. It is manufactured from recycled wood dust, wax and a wick. It is very safe to light and burns for approximately 18 minutes. It has no smell and is environmentally friendly which makes it ideal for campers and back-packers.
