Human activities may be damaging the health of our planet now more than at any time in history. As the threats of such problems as global warming become more alarming, scientists, governments, and industrial groups are increasing their efforts to respond. Do we as individuals have a responsibility to help care for the environment?
These four individuals from Majakaneng, Dobsonville, Newcastle and Soweto, definitely said ‘Yes’. In the throes of their former employer's financial reversal, four of his brave workers; the driver, the gardener, the housekeeper, and the caretaker, banded together to learn from his experience. All they asked was for their keep if he would share his knowledge base. What courage, what trust.
Knowing both their potential and acumen, their former employer upskilled his devoted former employees until all four of them could stand alone and MVBR Hlangene, a registered South African black-owned entity, was born. They are innovative and passionate about up-cycling and manufacturing opportunities from ‘waste/surplus’.
