Three grade 11 students from Bonteheuwel High School were among the young finalists who presented their green business concepts to a jury at an event in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

The National Youth Entrepreneurship Awards saw young people from across the country showcase their green innovation and entrepreneurial skills.

Tamara Oliver, Cassidy Spoctor and Farazaanah Laubser from Bonteheuwel High attended the ceremony with their teacher Chad Moodie.

They were flown to Johannesburg to showcase their concept of a clothing exchange service that reduces wasted clothing and allows community buying and selling.

Oliver says the aim of the business would be to raise the people of Bonteheuwel, many of whom have no income.

In our community, we have a lot of garbage dumps. So what we’re trying to do is instead of people throwing these materials away, they can bring them to us for a little gift and then we sell them back.

We sell it back to the community where there are low income levels.

We looked at the problem in our community and that’s how we started our business.
