Hosted by the Enviropaedia, the 9th annual Eco-Logic Awards ceremony will be held in 2020.
The awards recognise South African communities or government institutions; business projects, services or products; organisations or individuals who are contributing to our urgent quest for a more sustainable world.
It’s all too easy to get swamped in the bad news of escalating climate change, oceans of plastic and the fears of our young generations about the world they will inherit. The Eco-Logic Awards serve as a light sabre cutting through the dark gloom and doom of the current state of our planet to highlight that there are bright green solutions that we as consumers and citizens can support.
