It's Your Planet.
One third of the Earth's resources have been lost in the last 30 years. 146 species are lost every
day and 15 000 species are threatened with extinction. 0.5% of the world's population own 50%
of the remaining resources. 1 tonne of marketable product produces 70 tonnes of waste. 26
tonnes of vital topsoil are washed out to sea every year. Rainforests are being cleared at a rate of
one football field per second. Rainwater is contaminated with pollutants that can affect the
development of our children. 6 billion hectares of fertile land are lost to desertification every
year. One third of the world's population is at war. One quarter of conflicts are a struggle over
natural resources. 1.25 billion People are denied access to food, water and shelter.
We can all make a difference! By making simple changes to your home and lifestyle you can help
preserve the environment you live in. If one person changes just one of their light bulbs with a
compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) they will save themselves around R60 during the lifetime of
the bulb. If every family in South Africa changed just one light bulb in their house, it would
eliminate billions of kilograms of greenhouse gases. By recycling half of your household waste,
you can eliminate the production of around 1,200 kg of CO2 annually. If we could capture just
1/1000th of the energy provided through daylight, we could have more energy that we currently
get from burning coal, oil and gas put together and all of this without a bill, without pollution.

“We do not inherit the Earth from our parents...
