We all need to do our part to save the planet and take care of the environment. With Arbour Month coming to an end, Platinum Weekly caught up with some of our readers to hear what they do to help the environment.

“Ek werk graag in my tuin so ek verkies om my eie groente te groei. Ek het ook ‘n hele paar spekbome en inheemse bome in my tuin geplant.”
Lucia Minnaar
“I try and do my part by not littering. I keep wrappings and empty tins or water bottles with me, until I can get rid of it in a dustbin.”
Ntsime Constance
“I do my part to save the environment by picking up trash I see lying around. I keep it in a plastic bag until I get to a dustbin to throw it away. This is something everybody needs to do to keep their environment clean."
Kamogelo Edwin
“Dit is baie belangrik om die omgewing te beskerm en te doen wat nodig is as dit kom by herwinning. Besoedeling beskading tans die wêreld! Ek en my familie doen herwinning een keer per week en dit is hoe ons bydra tot die omgewing.”
Jonathan Coetzee
