Here at Sustainable Africa we are all about Less Waste, Less Plastic and Less Impact. We look at anything that will challenge the status quo for the better, and by better we mean better for the environment. Operating in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana we aim to help African Businesses reduce their footprint by offering sustainable alternatives to their current practice.
Our biggest challenge is to reduce single use plastic. Packaging plays a vital role in modern day society; however, it has dire consequences for the environment. Where the use of packaging can’t be avoided, we can offer eco friendly and compostable alternatives. These alternatives emit up to 70% less greenhouse gases and can either be reduced to compost within 90 days* or recycled in the paper stream.

Plastic from single use food service packaging has been under the spotlight in the last few years. More and more people are choosing to buy reusable but even with this major shift to reusables, some disposables will always be needed. Our range of eco-friendly food service alternatives means that you can be sure that the packaging you use is free of oil-based plastic and made from renewable resources.
It might only be used once but primary packaging has a vital role to play in food preservation and protection. Unfortunately, up until now plastic has been the most common and cost-effective material used for this protection.Our Food Manufacturing line offers a range of compostable and paper alternatives that match plastic in performance and cost effectiveness.
Only available in Zimbabwe, our Eco Logs are the perfect substitute to coal or wood intensive operation. Made 100% from waste sawdust, these logs burn longer and hotter than most conventional logs without contributing to more deforestation.
