Calling all eco-champions across South Africa! The entries for the Eco-Logic Awards are officially open, with 12 categories from Eco-Fashion and Lifestyle to Eco-Communities just waiting to brim with Earth-conscious innovators:

South Africa (12 April 2024) —  Entries for the 2024 Eco-Logic Awards—a vibrant celebration of South Africa’s eco-champions, groundbreaking projects, and innovative solutions—are now officially open!

The awards, which have been running for over 12 years (you can read about the 2023 winners here), serve as a call to action, supporting initiatives that not only benefit ‘People and Planet’ but also ignite inspiration and empower consumers to embrace eco-conscious choices and decisions daily.

By honouring the pioneers and innovators spearheading the movement towards a more sustainable future, the awards help create a new school of those who are doing the most important thing for the planet—trying.

David Parry-Davies, editor of The Enviropaedia and founder of the Eco-Logic Awards emphasises, “the awards is a platform not only to recognise Eco-Champions but also to inspire consumers to support sustainable initiatives through their purchasing power.”

Leading the Charge Towards a Greener Tomorrow

The awards ceremony, set to take place at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town on October 30, 2024, will be televised on PPL°PLANET (OpenView Channel 115), available to millions of households throughout South Africa.

The event will honour gold, silver, and bronze winners across 12 categories, including Climate Change, Nature Conservation, Water Conservation,  Circular Economy and Waste Innovation, Eco-fashion and Lifestyle, Eco-health and Wellness, Eco-hospitality and Tourism, Eco-Innovation, Eco-Friendly Products, Eco-Communities and Schools, Eco-Angel, and Eco-Warrior.  There will also be a programme of environmental talks and workshops.

Entry is free, with all submissions evaluated by a panel of 12 independent and environmentally knowledgeable executives from diverse backgrounds.

Parry-Davies notes, “As the total annual media reach of the Eco-Logic Awards in 2023 was in excess of 94 million, it is clear that these awards have significant social impact and consumer influence. By supporting our Eco-Champions, and promoting environmentally beneficial products, services, individuals and organisations, we contribute positively to building a safer, healthier and more sustainable future for us all.”

Winning Means a Chance to Make More Change

Winners of this year’s Eco-Logic Awards will benefit from a consultation (valued at R300 000) with the Biomimicry SA team and enrolment in their “Change Makers by Nature” programme. Biomimicry draws inspiration directly from nature and involves learning from and emulating nature’s ingenious solutions to tackle human challenges.
