Green Projects

The RNF launches and supports a great deal of projects aimed at increasing sustainability.
We love the environment, we love Namibia!

The “Recycling Heroes” project was launched on 6 September. It is a joint initiative to highlight the RNF slogan of “Taking Hands today for a cleaner Namibia Tomorrow” with assistance from Development Workshop Namibia and supported by Coca Cola Namibia Beverages.

Igloo Donations

We, the RNF remain committed to support and encourage recycling initiatives. We have now received two recycling igloos from Coca Cola Namibia, which need to be put to good use to improve recycling in Namibia. Now is your chance to obtain one for your community recycling efforts.

Send us an email on how the igloo could assist or contribute towards your current collection initiatives – and you may just be the lucky recipient of one of the igloos! 

The closing date is 30 June 2022.

Rubbish Ronnie

After more than 10 years of hosting the annual Schools Recycling competition with the generous support of its members, close on 50 schools participated by collecting and sorting recyclables, with the top five schools receiving cash prizes.

After careful discussions, it was decided that the focus with our education awareness with our youth should shift from not only to recycle, but to create awareness towards a circular economy under the banner of “Rethink Tomorrow”.

Community Recycling Project

Our Community Recycling Project (in conjunction with Development Workshop Namibia) is running smoothly, and Bertha (who is in charge of recyclables) has managed to fill more than 31 one-ton bags of recyclables during the months of March and April 2021.

The support and input of the surrounding community in Samora Machel has been tremendous, especially as the volunteers dropping off the recyclables have no expectation of getting paid or rewarded for doing so.

The RNF’s annual Schools Recycling Competition is a highlight on our calendar – not only because it emphasises our commitment to spread the message of the 3 R’s to Namibia’s youth, but also to award the schools that go the extra mile in caring for the environment. Currently, we have 47 schools actively participating in our competition.
