A Fruitful Endeavor in Sustainability

In January 2024, the Eco Centre introduced a comprehensive approach to utilising the marula fruit, a native tree in Mozambique. This versatile fruit is used in various ways to minimise waste and promote sustainability. The fruit’s skin is dried and used as compost, enriching the soil and improving agricultural productivity. The flesh of the fruit is processed to produce alcohol drinks, juice, and jam, creating marketable products that contribute to the local economy. Furthermore, the pit of the marula fruit is used to extract oil, which has various uses, including culinary and cosmetic purposes. This holistic approach maximises the utilisation of the marula fruit, demonstrating the center’s commitment to sustainable practices and economic development.
