One More Nail in the Single Use Plastics Coffin

Asilia Africa is proud to announce the introduction of biodegradable straws in all its camps.

Plastic waste is a worldwide problem with 10 million tons being generated each year.

Made from organically grown rye that have no chemicals or bleaches added, the straws are completely biodegradable and compostable. 

Similarly, Asilia has removed all cotton buds from its camps. Cling film was banned several years ago, and the introduction of reusable stainless steel water bottles means less plastic waste.  In 2016 the company replaced all lunch packs with biodegradable containers and cutlery made from sugarcane, paper and wood.

While senior management comes up with the guidelines for sustainability, the details and ideas on how we implement this are originating from our camps.  As a positive impact company sustainability is ingrained in Asilia’s DNA.
