The beauty of recycling

The Morningside Smiley Kids have a wonderful time learning about recycling with Mpact and Mrs South Africa finalist Portia Radebe.

Sandton resident and Mrs South Africa finalist Portia Radebe invited the Sandton Chronicle to join her and Ronnie the recycling man at Smiley Kids Morningside for a very important lesson.

Radebe is a strong advocate of recycling and empowerment and believes that anyone can follow their dreams despite what life may throw at them.

“I entered the Mrs South Africa competition to fulfil my call,” she said.

“I became an image consultant because I’ve got an unyielding desire to motivate and uplift people, more especially women and young ones.

“I want to fuel a different perspective and attitude in them so that they can pursue their dreams, no matter what they face. I found Tammy Taylor’s Mrs SA empowerment programme to be a well-suited platform to empower me, and then get me out there, to achieve this purpose and dream.”

Radebe talked about the importance of recycling and the benefits it could offer society. “Recycling to me simply means finding a reuse for used material. It is a brilliant idea, and only a genius could come up with this. Recycling is important to us all, a perfect example of a win-win situation.

Ronnie the recycling man and Portia Radebe, Mrs South Africa finalist, have a great time education young ones about the importance of recycling.

“Not only does it provide jobs, minimise expenditures, help raise funds but also it is an opportunity to save our environment. With enough awareness and encouragement in our communities, we will achieve a cleaner, healthier and greener South Africa.”
