Giraffe Manor recycles, reuses or repurposes up to 95% of its waste every month. However, the rest of Nairobi has a lot of catching up to do when it comes to waste recycling and disposal. Around 60% of Nairobi city’s rubbish is uncollected by the municipal authorities and much of it ends up on our streets.
Every year at The Safari Collection we join the team from the Giraffe Center to take part in a neighbourhood tidy up. 15 of our staff, friends and family from Giraffe Manor, the reservations office and the operations crew joined up with a group of around 100 others from nearby local businesses to spend the day collecting trash from our neighbourhood. All the rubbish collected on the day was packed into bags and sent for recycling.
