The 8th annual Eco-Logic Awards event, presented by The Enviropaedia, South Africa’s online environmental encyclopaedia, green directory and repository of sustainability thought leadership will be held on 5 June 2019, which is World Environment Day.
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.
This year’s finalists across the 12 categories includes Plett’s own Rhian Berning of Eco Atlas in the Eco-Angel category.
The awards will encourage greater awareness of action taken against the impacts of urgent issues, and in doing so, generate exposure for these eco-efforts. Director of The Enviropaedia and the Eco-Logic Awards, David Parry-Davies points out that previous winners of the Eco-Logic Awards have reported on benefits such as increased public awareness and credibility.
“We’ve had winners experiencing boosted sales of eco-friendly products and services,” he says. “But this is not all. It’s an opportunity for community and non-profit projects to attract more sponsorship from government and corporates. It’s an opportunity to foster more community support, employee engagement and target audience buy-in.”
The ‘Glamorously Green’ Eco-Logic Gala Awards evening will be held on 5 June 2019 at the Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town.
