We had a chat with Siyaeli Moshi, ‘Elly’ from Singita Serengeti, a wildlife reserve and One Planet Community, about her experiences with One Planet Living…
In 2020 the world changed, and priorities shifted. Covid-19 means our “leaving the house” checklist has grown: “wallet, phone, keys… mask”. Personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks and gloves are paramount for protecting people’s health. But like with many things from this pandemic, unintended consequences have surfaced.
The Marine Conservation Society’s annual beach clean featured PPE on their surveys for the first time this year. PPE was found by volunteers on 30% of the beaches they cleaned up and 69% of inland litter picks.
The health and safety protocols to manage Covid-19 are vital, but we mustn’t forget the environmental crisis.
And our friends at Singita – a One Planet Living community - are showing how. Despite the enormous pressures placed on their business this year, they have held steady on sustainability. By making the extra effort with cleaning processes and finding innovative solutions, Singita aims to maintain the highest health and safety standards AND tackle unnecessary waste.
Top ways Singita is staying sustainable during Covid-19 protocols
Covid-19 reiterated to Singita how critical it is for us to respect the environment and how important all their sustainability principles are. In such challenging times, they have done a phenomenal job at ensuring their Covid-19 measures also help them contribute to their sustainability goals.
