Graskop Gorge Lift Co, as the custodian of an ecologically important environment, chose to use an earth-friendly sanitiser instead of one filled with potentially harmful chemicals, when it reopened to the public following the strict Coronavirus lockdown.
“We are committed to minimising our environmental footprint. From the outset, it was our mission to make it possible for people to enjoy the majesty of the Drakensberg escarpment just outside of Graskop, without heavily impacting the species-rich grasslands and forest,” says GM Quintin Pretorius.
“Graskop Gorge Lift Co was one of the first clients of Paarl-based Plant Inc, which created Dermural Sanitiser Original, a plant-based sanitiser that is 100% safe and effective,” he says.
“We decided on the organic sanitiser route to save the hands of our employees because frequent use of chlorine and alcohol-based products is very hard on the human skin; and to prevent harmful chemicals from impacting our environment.
“Our ethos is conservation in all its forms and we had to consider our forest along with our staff and customers when choosing a sanitiser,” he says.
