Shades of Green is a proud supporter of Earth Hour.
This year, earth hour is between 20h30 and 21h30 on Saturday the 25th of March. Millions of people as well as organizations worldwide participate by hosting an event during this time or switching off all electricity for an hour. People participate by going star gazing together, having earth hour parties or even having candle lit dinners to support earth hour and make as much noise as possible for action on climate change.
Here at Shades of Green we go the extra mile by trying to live each day in a sustainable way, by planning and implementing events and exhibitions in a way that is socially and environmentally friendly. At Shades of Green we are passionate about helping clients not only plan and execute, but do so in a way that reduces environmental impact, while increasing economic, social and environmental benefit. We as people of this nation need to take responsibility for environmental and social performance.
In our previous blog post “Inspiration Station”, we have shown sustainable exhibition designs from around the world and as well as some done by the Shades of Green team.
Earth hour supporters have definitely helped make a change over the past few years. Many supporters have successfully received some climate friendly laws and policies which may include those that banned plastic located in the World Heritage site of the Galapagos islands.
Climate change begins with ordinary people like you and I, it is our responsibility to protect our planet, because it’s our home.
We at Shades of Green, are huge believers that small steps equal big outcomes. We challenge all businesses as well as clients to be acknowledged for your sustainability leadership in 2017. We as people of this nation need to take responsibility for environmental and social performance.
Earlier this month, Shades of Green placed a pledge on laps completed by a local Durban athlete and personal trainer, Mariska Grace for the WarriorXtreme24. The 24 hour obstacle race saw participants pushing their limits as they endured laps of a 5km obstacle course with 15 obstacles. The race itself was developed to test the toughest of athletes.
Mariska completed a respectable 13 laps over 17 hours, completing the race on the podium as the third lady. The funds raised will be used by KwaRescue (a project of KwaCare – a public benefit organisation) to renovate the children’s section at the Pinetown court making it easier for children affected by sexual abuse to testify.
Shades of Green looks forward to getting involved in many more CSI projects to ensure we make a positive contribution to the lives of those who need a helping hand and a little bit of hope.
