Distell, in partnership with waste beneficiation and implementation partner, Separation at Source (S@S), is launching GreenUp, a progressive community change initiative focused on a cleaner environment, as well as on establishing and formalising effective value chains of operation in the collection, separation and processing of recyclable post-consumer waste within the Western Cape’s Khayelitsha informal settlement.     This green economy action initiative is being introduced this week, during South Africa’s ninth annual Sustainability Week.

Perhaps the most memorable thing about Loire is the delectable food that is prepared and served here. It is famous for so many dishes and preparations, but its goat’s milk cheeses and classics like pork rillettes are certainly top-of-the-list.
