Private Security Company Vision Tactical’s “Green Team” has launched its latest environmentally conscious campaign in Houghton and surrounding areas – “Brewing Change”.
In an effort to reduce waste and pollution, the Green Team has been involved in various clean-up campaigns, inspiring the call to restore our local environment to its cleanest and aesthetically appealing state.
In its latest approach, the Green Team will collect ground coffee from shops once its discarded, transforming it in to a rich fertilizer for our local environment where it will be used in Houghton, Norwood and Killarney and surrounding areas.
Director of Vision Tactical, Yaseen Theba says that by recycling, reusing and reducing the amount of municipal waste we have, we are helping to build a more sustainable future for our children and grandchildren, and this latest campaign is proof of what is possible, it’s a ‘win-win’
“We only have a limited amount of natural resources on this planet and a limited capacity to process waste, so it’s important to do our part each day toward a better future.”
Green Team Encourages Residents To Use Coffee Grounds As Fertilizer In Gardens
Theba adds that coffee grounds as a fertilizer has been scientifically proven to help nourish the soil and promote the healthy and fast growth of plants.
“Coffee grounds may be a waste product of coffee brewing, but they still contain beneficial minerals your plants will love.”
Following research and consultations with environmental experts, analysis shows that coffee grounds include magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and is loved by worms because of the acidity.
Collecting And Storing Used Coffee Grounds
The Green Team will collect the coffee grounds from coffee spots in the community at no charge and will store it before they can be used as fertilizers in public recreational areas such as parks.
