Protecting the nature we all rely on for food, fresh water and livelihoods

Video gallery In this film, Robert Richards demonstrates how he's built a sustainable soap production business in Namaqualand, South Africa as a recipient of funding from SKEPPIES. For many years, Rober had a vision to run a business that would enable him to produce a quality product by sustainably harvesting the ingredients from nature. Today, Robert uses 'Kraalbos', a pioneer plant to make a variety of beauty products that can now be found country wide. Robert is one of many contributing to South Africa's green economy.
