Entries are now open for the 2023 Eco-Logic Awards that identifies individuals, organisations and communities that positively contribute towards a sustainable world and encourage consumers to purchase their products and services.

Last year’s 11th annual “glamorously green” event was hosted by the Enviropaedia at the Two Oceans Aquarium in September.

A clothing and accessories company in Westlake took gold in the Eco-Fashion and Lifestyle category. Nature Connect, previously known as the Cape Town Environmental Education Trust, took a bronze award in the Nature Conservation category.

David Parry-Davies, editor of The Enviropaedia and founder of the Eco-Logic Awards, says these awards are about people who champion sustainability and greener solutions who often fly under the radar.

He says it is also a platform to educate consumers about environmental challenges and motivate them to be part of the solution by leveraging their consumer spending to support and buy from those that demonstrate a commitment to building a sustainable society and environment.

The televised award show, which will air on DStv’s People’s Weather Channel 180 and Open View Channel 115, will showcase gold, silver and bronze award winners in 12 categories: 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 is no cost to enter the Eco-Logic Awards and all entries will be judged by 12 independent, highly-respected, environmentally conscious executives from a diverse range of occupations and professions.
