Mercian is aware of the environmental effects of composite stick production, transportation and disposal. Changes have been made in the processes to recognise and reduce this impact. But, some processes, such as recycling of end of life sticks doesn’t technically exist at this point. Mercian has partnered with Windhoek Gymnasium School to create a Spekboom plantation on the school property. The Spekboom shrub is incredibly good at absorbing carbon and has been compared to the Amazon rainforest in that regard.
Windhoek Gymnasium (in Windhoek, Namibia) is nestled in the quiet residential area of Kleine Kuppe and the Gammans River flows right by our school. We are conveniently close to The Grove Mall, The Independence Stadium as well as the Windhoek Golf Club. The Eros International Airport is only 8 minutes’ drive away and the University of Namibia is close by for easy tertiary enrolment after Grade 12. We also offer a transport service for learners travelling to our school.
The school has a spekboom plantation, as part of the initiative they would take the first team hockey boys and girls to the plantation and plant next seasons trees in the shape of an m logo. The sponsorship money funds that trip, the trees themselves with any underspend rolling into the hockey budget.
