When Moja Love announced that it would be bringing back Zola onto our TV screens, South Africans were more than delighted to hear that the Supa Guluva was returning to bring back hope in the lives of many South Africans.
The show, which only started last week has educated a lot of viewers about people who are striving to make a positive change in their communities.
This week, Zola and his team highlighted the importance of recycling and how much of a positive change recycling has made in the lives of the less fortunate.
During the show, recyclers shared that they make between R200 - R400 a day, which is really quite impressive considering that if all goes well within a month, they could easily make a cool R10,000 to feed their families.
Which got us thinking, how many of us judge recyclers whenever we see them digging in a pile of rubbish or at a waste dump? Or how irritated you get when you see them on the road pushing their trollies full of waste?
Little did you know that, that trolly filled with waste is worth quite a lot of money.
Viewers of the show were quite impressed with what Zola and his team had created with regards to this episode and thanked him for once again creating content that is not only relative but most importantly educative.
#HopeWithZola doesn't only help communities and individuals but also educates us on a daily.— N E O🍃. (@JhastN30) October 23, 2018
I know someone from my hood I went to high school with, started a recycling company. Created job opportunities in the hood. Every week a truck is coming to collect. I wasn't aware they're making so much money. 🔥👌💪✊ #HopeWithZola— i even bodyo isht (@bongz275) October 23, 2018
It's good to see people learning about principles of sustainability and circular economy through inspirationl and relevant shows like #hopewithzola.

Super Guluva has once again proved why he is one of South Africa's most loved public figures.
Respect to him and all recyclers who are trying to make a difference in their families lives and communities.
