On 29 June 2018, Sancert held its annual strategy conference at Hotel Verde in Cape Town.
One of the primary reasons why Sancert makes use of the facilities at Hotel Verde is because it is the greenest hotel in Africa and they offset all carbon produced by our conference attendance on our half. This ties in with our environmental impact which Sancert is continually aware of.
Thank you Hotel Verde for always looking after us so well! See you in 2019 when we measure our growth over the year and discuss future exciting plans!
With the low dam levels in the Western Cape, the issue of saving water is on everyone’s minds. But how exactly can we save water?
Here are 5 tips to get you going:
- Half flush the toilet (after pushing the handle down, pull it up immediately).
- Catch the water that is being draining from your washing machine when doing a cycle (Make sure your bucket is big enough because 25L fills up n 10seconds! You may want to use a big bin).
- Shorten your showers.
- Keep a bucket in the shower to catch the water. This can then be used to water plants and flush the toilet.
- Use rain barrels to catch the rain water.
