The Eco-Logic Awards have announced their finalists! Meet the South African eco-champions who demonstrate an inspiring commitment to building a sustainable society and environment:

 

Cape Town, South Africa (12 October 2023) — The Eco-Logic Awards is celebrating its 12th award ceremony; set to honour like-minded eco-champions in South Africa who continue to make a positive impact on the environment, their local communities, and the planet through skills, products, or services.

“In these tumultuous times it’s more important than ever to recognise and celebrate the awe-inspiring contributions made by so many people and businesses striving to create a better, greener world. This, in turn, educates consumers about environmental challenges and empowers them to be part of the solution,” says David Parry-Davies, the editor of The Enviropaedia and founder of the Eco-Logic Awards.

The finalists have been announced a month in anticipation of the awards ceremony set to take place on 9 November. There, the winners will take home bronze, silver, and gold awards across 12 categories of impact, as selected by esteemed environmentally conscious judges. Each of the awards is sponsored by various businesses and organisations in South Africa.
