Food producer Rhodes Food Group has pledged R90 000 towards a collaborative water-saving initiative in the Western Cape.
Companies are signing up to pledge in the Smart Water Meter Challenge, an initiative by Shoprite Group in partnership with CapeTalk and other organisations.
Shoprite has committed to installing water-monitoring devices at Cape Town’s top 100 high-volume water-using schools.
Rhodes Food Group has joined the cause and will cover an additional three locals schools with its R90 000 pledge.
R 30 000 per school is required for the project. This includes the smart water meter installation, plumbing interventions, and maintenance for one year.
Rhodes Food Group director Richard Phillips says the cause will encourage local communities to play their part in raising awareness about water saving.
It's a phenomenal initiative, especially under the current circumstances in the Western Cape.— Richard Phillips, Commercial director at Rhodes Food Group
