“We must all do our bit to rethink the way we dispose our waste and reuse to reduce waste as much as possible. We are much more than a bank; we are a real part of your community. Every year we help support environmental, educational, sporting, and charitable programmes to help the communities we operate in, “Kilagi told the Grade 3 and 4 students.
