The Eco-Logic Awards, hosted by The Enviropaedia (in association with SABC3), have announced that entries are now open for individuals and organisations to submit their products, services, innovations and achievements.
In their third year, the Awards are regarded as one of South Africa’s most inspirational and influential acknowledgements and support of individuals and organisations that are making a real and measurable difference in creating a more sustainable world to live in.
“The Eco-Logic Awards are based on a set of values and thinking patterns that go beyond a traditional ‘green’ conservation mentality, inviting us to step up into a more evolved level of ‘eco-logical’ consciousness and thinking that is represented by the colour blue and is put into practice through the art and science of Biomimicry and the principles of a Blue Economy,” says The Enviropaedia Editor, David Parry-Davies.
The 2013 Eco-Logic Award categories are:
- The Water Conservation Award (sponsored by Rand Water)
- The Energy Saving Award (sponsored by SMA DE)
- The Recycling Award (sponsored by Collect a Can)
- The Biodiversity Award (sponsored by Exxaro)
- The Climate Change Award (sponsored by Paarl Media)
- The Municipalities Award (sponsored by Santam)
- The Youth Award (sponsored by Pick n Pay)
- The Eco-Angel Award (sponsored by ACSA)
- The Eco-Warrior Award (sponsored by RISO)
- The Eco-Innovation Award (sponsored by Standard Bank)
- Eco-Community Award (sponsored by SABC3)
- The Lifetime achievement Award.
- The Transport Award.
Following a decade of success as one of South Africa’s very first ‘green’ publications and directories, The Enviropaedia introduced the Eco-Logic Awards three years ago, to extend its reach even further by recognising individuals and organisations that are making a real and measurable contribution towards creating a more sustainable world to live in.
One of the key objectives of The Enviropaedia and the Eco-Logic Awards is to empower consumers to live and work in a more sustainable manner and to become ‘ethical consumers’ by buying and supporting products and services from organisations that care about the environment and climate change.
The Award entries close on the 30 June and the event is celebrated in Maropeng (Cradle of Humankind South Africa) World Heritage site, Gauteng on the 26 September 2013, with an Eco-VIP networking function taking place before the awards.
