Affiliates of Leo
We want to say a massive thank you to all the organisations that have pledged to sponsor and help us. You are not only helping LEO but all of the wildlife and environment that LEO works to conserve.
How do you clean your home?
Here at LEO Africa our conservation efforts go beyond the Park in which we operate. We try to make a difference in many different aspects of our daily lives. That is why a few months ago we started using cleaning products from a South African company called Mrs Martin's.
Their products are readily biodegradable and do not contain any toxic chemicals but only active “good” bacteria to digest organic matter. This means they do not pollute water systems.
We are very happy with their products as they clean exceptionally well. This switch had also lead us to drastically reduce our plastic consumption as we refill our containers at their facilities! A great way to take care of our environment!
Each of us can make a difference! Start today!
A huge thank you to Leatherman, who kindly donated 7 Leatherman Wave Multitools to our team! These handy, resistant and quality tools aid us greatly in our daily conservation efforts.
Leatherman are a world renowned company, know for their great manufacturing and multi-tools
"Whether crafting, creating, repairing or rebuilding, it's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it. All it takes is unwavering perseverance and the right tool in your hands"
We highly recommend Leatherman to everyone who needs a multi-tool or spend a lot of times outdoors, in nature! A must have equipment!
The LEO Team wears Sapmok Shoes!
A huge thank you to Sapmok for supporting our conservation work and sponsoring shoes for the LEO Team!
Sapmok was created by Werner Winterboer in 2015.
Every shoe we make is handcrafted by our skilled cobblers, and can be witnessed at Sapmok HQ. We cut, measure and stitch everything from scratch, creating a shoe from nothing.
We can make a shoe from a clients shirt if they have the demand. We use the best quality materials we can lay our hands on, especially our leather. Only using the best leather from the best (most ethical) tanneries in South Africa. We are constantly trying to find the most durable, good looking and self-healing leather on the market. This is an ongoing process and will always be high on our priority list.
The future of Sapmok
One of the main reasons Sapmok was created was to give back to conservation, and this is where our team create projects and ideas to support our dream. Focusing on environmental responsibility therefore automatically falls under our long term goals and this is done by sourcing sustainable and recyclable materials to manufacture our products. We still have a very long road before we achieve these goals, but we’re already on our way.
Purchase your pair of Sapmok shoes at a discounted price while at LEO Africa. You will support a local business in South Africa while wearing the most amazing, comfortable shoes!
INSIDER RELEASE is mainly a geopolitical blog that promotes free and impartial information. We dedicate our work to several topics with a particular interest in international security in general.
In a world dominated by uncertainty, we still believe in the power of information to face the threats of our future and to strive for a better world.
LEO Africa and Sabrina Colombo collaborate with the magazine writing some valuable conservation related articles.
Lush is an organisation that sell 'fresh, handmade products' in stores worldwide.
Their products use only vegan and vegetarian recipes. They produce toiletries and products that use little to no plastic, the products that do have plastic containers can all be recycled or brought in store to redeem a free face mask.
