share your story. it is pretty obvious to all of us by now that the current pandemic requires us to make a lot of changes in the way we conduct our life but it is also giving us a new perspective on how so many things are done even the simple things new ideas are much ink that can really benefit people and the environment in these trying times. that's right sandra in south africa a young man came up with a great new business venture it's eco friendly and has been well received in his cape town neighborhood writes this. young men in blue overalls cruising through the streets of longer in recent weeks the residents of the cape town suburb have gotten used to the sight. this is the man behind the bicycle armada. i mean he's calling corsi and found
1:44 am
a. cloudy deliveries is the name of color because he's nearly found it business it to every service on. bikes the 1st one in the township. he starts every day with a team meeting. the group discusses goals and customer service practices. the idea for the business stems from his own experience. and. so. the delivery fleet is heading out. on him cause he doesn't have time to do deliveries anymore there's too much admin work to get done. since the 22 year old started cloudy deliveries in january 2020 it has grown steadily and the coronavirus pandemic boosted the business even more today the team has around 20 delivery rides with other one of
1:45 am
them on his shift this busy customer has asked 19 year old took his easy causa to buy groceries and a cell phone cover for her. i'm working from home ploy it's very convenient for me because i don't have time to actually go to the store and i have to make it out. into the causa is heading to the supermarket the customers pay $9.00 rand per delivery roughly the equivalent of 50 u.s. sends the delivery rider gets 3 rand per delivery the remaining 6 rand goes to the company. youth unemployment in south africa is extremely high and the pandemic has only made things worse on top of the sickos that just finished school he wants to continue his studies one day but for now he's happy working as a delivery driver bar-lev much of. helping people.
1:46 am
back at the headquarters the calls are still coming in every cyclist does $45.00 deliveries per day with my. any people forced to stay at home during the lockdown clouted deliveries is filling a huge gap in the township and the township residents like the unusual news service . to get feedback from across. the. sea of human rights. to. call him cause he's next goal is to expand his fleet and to open his own online shop to benefit the environment he plans to use only paper for packaging to set an example that he hopes other companies will follow. our way of doing things is reaching its limits and that's something we often hear
1:47 am
in our days when it comes to the stewardship of natural resources it is certainly the case and the radical rethink is needed we have to protect its forest rivers. and plants and that will require coming up with ways of making on using things without creating which here are some impressive examples. of minutiae astrid since spends much of her free time thinking about wild plants. i must protect what you know and she's on a mission to get people to know the wild plants around them better. than the lion and that's why she created the game and that to a memo a memory game that you teaches people of all ages about plant life. began dusting bed fans i would really like wild plants to be part of our lives
1:48 am
again in fact i'll even go one step further i'd also like to see them on our main. because wild plants contain so many important nutrients that are often missing from the culture of vegetables we eat nowadays and. she made sure not to a memo was produced to a standard called cradle to cradle. but the cradle to cradle standard means more than just composite it also means that during decomposition little to nothing is released that could harm the environment printouts loci is the 1st in germany that prints to this standard ralph inherited the company from his father and has transformed it into a fully green operation. basically i think it's the responsibility of a company to make sure that its products don't harm the environment. we need to make a profit so that both our staff from the company can make
1:49 am
a living. but we're not looking to make a profit at the expense of people and nature. of course. this means making every step of the process to sustainable the printing machines provide climate control for the building which uses the water every secularization system the machines are also c o 2 neutral and the paper and printing colors both carry cradle to cradle certification making the change from a conventional printing house to a sustainable one was an easy decision fellow. it's not going to mentally much more expensive. but you do need to be willing to reorganize things. course when you rethink production. a lot of things need to be completely overhauled you need a whole new approach. this is the challenge facing the entire printing
1:50 am
industry more than half of the paper thrown out 12 wide ends up in landfills and more paper is produced every year paper. can take up to 20 years to break down and that process releases c o 2 and anything into the atmosphere alcohol and other chemicals from the printing process also see from the paper into the environment the catapult magazine found you mean freight began printing on a different sort of paper to save trees. so this is the magazine this year where we changed over from normal paper to recycled paper so here i calculated how many trees were filled with normal paper and on the back with recycled paper if publishers would simply switch from normal paper to recycled paper it would be a huge step. sure it would be so much less damaging to the environment. not to. it's a viable solution for big publishes the same simple and catapult says it costs them
1:51 am
less than one percent more to use recycled paper and if people opted for the same high standards as asked to put in completely sustainable printed products could become as common as wild. our next trip or takes us to senegal many of the countries 15000000 inhabitants live beside the atlantic ocean where the sea level rise caused by climate change is making the existing problem of costly russian worse 4 decades ago a forest was planted in the northwest of the country to combat the problem of shoreline retreat. that is right near to and changed the lives of farmers and fishermen there but now population growth and other factors are putting a strain on the forest and local communities are now walking together in order to maintain oh you haven't improved the forest hill. about to fall harvest
1:52 am
all at plants that's not something that former smalley so take for granted. here's one of over 20000 followers living in the new year's region of northwestern senegal many live close to the coast and still potentially face the threats of erosion and sandstorms but a belt of trees is helping to protect them. almost 200 kilometers long it's 500 metres wide at its narrowest point the forest was planted 40 years ago as a shield against wind and coastal erosion. from city of ramadi. right here where we are no was once nothing but it was and is is known for his living in before these trees were planted up there we did with cause erosion. they call that much learned disease in here in the uk to produce. a tool it is
1:53 am
they've made it possible for the foremost to set student here. but i'm a thorough proved to be that today 60 percent of senegal's vegetable production comes from the new i use region. an estimated 225000 tonnes of produce here on only. it has become the country's food basket and it was of high injuries that allowed farmers like a small to say to create their fields. if you really want to because we were going with it was only after the trees were planted that were able to live and work the land. at 1st they could only put up temporary shelters because the sun knocked out everything in its path and sort of pine trees asunder stable and because of that you have a fertile forest and if that's homes i can cultivate vegetables on
1:54 am
a public. park not a model to be anonymous. it's a delicate balance though the farmers need the trees for protection but the growing population means the demand for timber for feel and fulfilled in fairness is also growing and. the solution the forest has been divided up into some 200 plots monitored by different agricultural and forestry groups. each group decides which streams can be felled according to strict cortez. sutley ends up planted to replace any trees that a chop down this there's reason leaves some planes to fun as all over the proved. well holy book but only in the early days as you can see it's because of the abundance of pine trees that we have for thailand so maintaining the forest is central to the work of our association it will be in order to do that we have to
1:55 am
plan to replenish trees point before it's crucial to sustainable development when it can but that's a good one doug what the young trees are in their plastic chutes to ensure the absorb as much moisture as possible then the plastic is cut away to let the tree take root over $50000.00 trees are planted each year and hopefully they'll also protect future generations informant's from inclusion sand and rising sea levels. it is good to be really minded about it and looking after the environment can really pay all that is only help me today thank you for joining us it is a good bike for me but we know you're here in complex until next sign. buying into by phone alexandra it was a pleasure co-hosting the show with you and to our viewers out there every member you can find out more about environmental protection on sustainability on our
