The Eco-Logic Awards, hosted by Enviropaedia, will take place on the 5th of June and put the spotlight on positive action taken against the impact of our environmental crisis and highlight the efforts of SA’s eco-champions.
“Our news can be filled with a lot of negativity about the state of our planet, but there are some exceptional efforts being made to combat urgent issues, and these awards aim to recognise these efforts and encourage others to get onboard,” says David Parry-Davies, Director of The Enviropaedia and the Eco-Logic Awards.
There are 12 categories in which participants can take part. Up to five of the best nominees in each category will be selected as finalists and invited to attend the ‘Glamorously Green’ Eco-Logic Gala Awards at Cape Point Vineyards, Cape Town.
