In 2018, CellMark Basic Chemicals entered into an agreement with Sappi Southern Africa to donate a percentage of lignosulfonate sales to a joint education project with our partner PaperSeed Foundation. 2018 contributions from CellMark and Sappi amounted to a joint total of $24,000 USD, all of which will go to making essential upgrades to Lower Tugela Primary school.
Lower Tugela Primary school was chosen due to its proximity to a Sappi mill, thus ensuring that the project enriches the learning outcomes of children in their community and prepares them to enter the rapidly changing workforce of the 21st century.
We are very proud to be working in partnership with PaperSeed Foundation and Sappi, in order to support the Lower Tugela Primary School.
