World Environmental Health Day

The SAMRC’s  Environment & Health Research Unit (E&HRU) will pause for 15 - 30 minutes to mark World Environmental Health Day.

We are committing to:

  • The Reduction of the use of plastic materials in the E&HRU
  • An increase in the the proportion of vegetarian foods for catered E&HRU meetings and workshops

In response to the increased understanding of the detrimental impacts of plastics and meat production, the EHRU has updated its policy.

Join the movement by making a personal commitment to:

  • Refuse to use straws
  • Taking our own bags along when shopping
  • Eat vegetarian meals at least one day each week.

We will also make sturdy shopping bags available in the E&HRU offices in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Port Elizabeth. Additionally, we will increase awareness about the  impacts of plastics and meat production on the environment.
