Get Plogging and help make Durban great

By admin on July 18, 2018 in Latest News

At Jonsson Workwear, we believe in creating a better world, every day.

Inspired by Nelson Mandela’s words that “You can start changing our world for the better daily, no matter how small the action”, Jonsson Workwear has teamed up with Bay Union, JT Ross and The Sharks to launch the PLOG Squad campaign on Mandela Day. This will be an ongoing drive to clean up the streets in our neighbourhood, around the Jonsson Kings Park precinct. 

So, what is Plogging? It is a fitness craze for people who want to save the planet. The term plogging is a mash-up of pick up litter as you jog or walk. And it’s a great way to incorporate cleaning the environment into daily exercise. Besides the benefits of getting fit and showing our pride in our great city, the intention is to inspire a green consciousness in the community.  Together with Wildlands, a Recycling Village will be created in the area with mentorship support from JT Ross, and the Denis Hurley Foundation will run eco-audit training for those interested in improving their footprint, with tips on how to save costs on water, electricity and waste.

“Our community and the upliftment of it remains a key value for The Sharks, and we are delighted to partner with our naming rights sponsor, Jonsson Workwear and our neighboring businesses on this project which commences on Mandela Day.  Our collaborative aim is to make a lasting difference, and this speaks to the legacy of our beloved Tata Madiba”, added The Sharks PR Manager, Novashni Chetty.

We hope to see the wider community PLOG in their neighbourhoods. It is an easy way to make a difference, every day.

Use the hashtags #Plogging #JonssonWorkwear and share your efforts to make Durban great!

Log your plogging effort on the EARTH DAY register which calls for a BILLION acts of GREEN in 2018 to End Plastic Pollution.

We are delighted to announce that Jonsson Workwear has acquired the naming rights to the iconic Kings Park stadium.

These values echo those of The Sharks namely community, pride, respect, work ethic and teamwork.

This partnership will see the revitalization of the Kings Park Stadium and surrounding precinct as well as sponsorship / branding on The Sharks rugby team kit; activations and social media platforms.

Expressing his delight at this partnership, The Sharks CEO Gary Teichmann said: “Both Brands are proudly KZN with a national attraction because of our relevance and commitment to excellence. We look forward to a long-term partnership that will seek to move boundaries and redefine the profile of our wonderful province of KZN.”

Nick Jonsson, CEO of Jonsson Workwear echoed Teichmann’s sentiment: “We are thrilled to be partnering with The Sharks in renaming, rebranding and revitalizing Kings Park. As a proudly Durban based business we wish to encourage other local iconic businesses to work with us to make Durban a lifestyle and business destination of choice. And we are neighbours after all!”

The Dusi Canoe Marathon is done and dusted for this year, but its positive effects continue to benefit communities in and around the valley which the race runs through.

For three days our street artists worked their magic on a 3 metre canvas, capturing the essence of the Dusi.

The mural was auctioned, and the Natal Canoe Club was the highest bidder. All proceeds will be handed over to the Chief’s Valley Trust, which helps the community.

Jonsson Workwear Supports The Paper Money Project

By admin on October 04, 2017 in Sponsorships

When you’re at an intersection in Durban you might get the urge to roll up your windows, avoiding the people who ask for money at the robots, but hold on. You might want to carefully look at the guys dressed in high visibility clothing selling newspapers.

Jonsson Workwear has supplied high visibility workwear to some of the people who usually beg at intersections, who have now become Paper Money entrepreneurs, selling newspapers to motorists.

The Paper Money project started when the Denis Hurley Centre collaborated with Urban Lime to try and get those currently begging, away from asking people for money, and instead have a chance to empower themselves by making their own money.

The vendors sell the newspapers to motorists for the price of R10, as it is the smallest note available, hence the term ‘paper money.’  They then get to keep half of the money they make.

The project manager Stuart Talbot from the Denis Hurley Centre says the aim of this project is “to turn most beggars operating at robots in Durban into entrepreneurial newspaper vendors.”
