Kouga is a finalist in 2020 Eco-Logic Awards

The finalists in the 2020 Eco-Logic Awards, hosted by the Enviropaedia across 12 categories, have been announced and Kouga has been nominated in two categories – the innovation award and the eco-build award.

The nominations come about due to the plastic road that was constructed in Jeffreys Bay.

The virtual awards ceremony will take place on 21 September (World Peace Day). Initially set to take place 5 June, the event was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The Eco-Logic Awards identify individuals, organisations and communities that positively contribute towards a sustainable world – and we encourage consumers to support them by purchasing their products and services,” said David Parry-Davies, director of Enviropaedia.
