Is your garden hose ready for retirement? Don’t dump it – recycle it!

January 30, 2017

Life in Africa is tough – especially for a garden hose.  Years’ of exposure to the harsh African sun, abuse by dogs, wheelbarrows, cars and other problematic influences tend to take its toll on your garden hose.  Is it time to replace that leaky old water waster?  What to do with the old fellow?  Dump it? 

 

Improper recycling and dumping of waste have a negative impact on the environment.  Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from garbage in landfill sites.   Recycling reduces the impact on landfills and the environment by reutilising the materials in the production of other usable products.  Recycling reduces the need for virgin raw materials thus preserving natural resources, as well as energy (needed for the production of virgin material). 

 

KOS – in partnership with Wedgit – launches this initiative to recycle your old garden hose roll when supplying a new Wedgit garden hose roll. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wedgit strives to contribute to a cleaner environment by firstly designing and manufacturing products that have a longer productive life (i.e. lasts longer), thus reducing the rate of retirement of used products.  Secondly they actively support the responsible recycling of used garden hose products. 

 

In support of this mission we offer a Trade In Option to buyers of a new Wedgit Premium Garden Hose (10 year design life). We will buy back your old garden hose and put it to good use (turned into durable interlocking flooring tiles by a partner of ours).

 

Interested to trade your old hose for a tough Wedgit Premium Garden Hose?  Order the Wedgit Garden Hose Trade In on your next KOS order. Bring your old hose (tightly rolled to enable easy transportation) to your hub when collecting your brand new Wedgit hose on your next order.  We offer a 10% discount on its normal sales price for all trade ins.
