Imagine the day when there is no litter? Just the pure beauty of an unsullied paradise! Could this miracle happen? Yes, if it has anything to do with the sentiment around Lunchbox Theatre’s brand new show which raises awareness about managing waste better.
Those of us who are lucky enough to live in the Eden District Municipalities generate about ± 215 000 tons of waste per year. We throw things ‘Away’ all the time however there is no such place as “Away”. Landfill sites are under increasing pressure.
Are there ways to change the attitudes about how we deal with our waste? Live theatre is a great way of getting the message across. The What a Waste show focuses on waste management, recycling, the hazards of littering and addresses the everyday questions of sustainability. The show encourages the audience to clean up their space, un-clutter their minds and help each other to live healthier lives … one plastic wrap at a time, one show at a time – step by step.
It is thanks to the generous funding of the National Lotteries Commission that this show, which is so important to tourism, was created by Lunchbox Theatre. 9 shows have been scheduled for Eden schools in September. Coming your way …. A cleaner environment. Worth supporting. http://www.lunchbox.org.za/our-shows/the-waste-show/
