This not only supports a local community, it protects the planet & reduces the hotel’s carbon foot print.
Mapepa presents a unique range of paper products created by village people in the African Republic of Zimbabwe. The objective of the organization is to promote and support small-scale paper production through community based projects spread throughout the country. Master paper makers train villagers in the ancient art of papermaking using simple equipment which is donated by the organization. This fledgling new industry has given hope to hundreds of people, mainly women with young families. They are trained to make paper using indigenous plant fibers that grow wild around their home. Each sheet is made from 100% cellulosic plant fiber - which is lignin and acid free.
Luipardal purchases essential oils through KAITE a community based project in Zimbabwe. KAITE is a private company with outlets in Zimbabwe and Germany, engaged in sustainable social entrepreneurship through the cultivation, production, authentication, processing, exporting, and marketing of high quality organic products for the local and international market.
Through our emphasis on the organic production of herbs, spices, medicinal, and aromatic plants, as well as staple foods, we ensure that small-scale farmers escape the vicious cycle of heavy reliance on imported inputs, unsustainable methods of farming, volatile produce markets, low producer prices, and lack of marketing.
