2018 Eco-Logic Awards finalists announced

After gathering earlier this month, the 2018 Eco-Logic Awards judging panel have selected the finalists in each environmental category. Hosted by The Enviropaedia, the awards will take place on 5 June, World Environment Day, in Tshwane.

“The Eco-Logic Awards promotes the best of South Africa’s eco-champions. This is becoming more and more relevant for consumers today, particularly when you look at just how much they care about the moral and environmental values and behaviour of the brands they choose to support,” says David Parry-Davies, publisher of The Enviropaedia and founder of the awards.

“The Eco-Logic value system is a radically new approach to addressing today’s environmental challenges. It identifies the destructive thinking patterns and values that have led to today’s environmental critical conditions and promotes an alternative set of constructive values and thinking patterns ('The seven virtues of Eco-Logic') that support and benefit people, planet and a green economy."
