Handcraft and design show KAMERS/Makers has partnered with Bluewater Africa and Consol Glass to provide glass bottles and purified drinking water to visitors at the six-day event, eliminating the need for single-use plastic water bottles. The Cape Town-based event will take place at Blaauwklippen Vineyards between Stellenbosch and Somerset West from 30 October to 4 November.
“While enjoying the hand-picked local creativity, visitors to KAMERS/Makers will have the opportunity to try Bluewater first hand from one of our three Bluewater trailers,” says James Steere, Cape Town-based Executive Director of Bluewater Africa. He said Bluewater had been brought in by the organisers as part of its vision to remove all single-use plastic from the event.
“Consol Glass and Bluewater share the same objective, to reduce single-use plastic, an ambition we successfully delivered on during the partnership with the Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Cape Town last year, where together we helped prevent the use of up to 500,000 standard plastic water bottles,” said Consol Glass brand manager Marlene Scott.
Every visitor will receive a Consol Curvy glass bottle to refill with purified drinking water at the three Bluewater trailers, free of charge.
