Viewers will not only be educated on how to become a green ambassador in their own surroundings, but also how to start shopping with a green eye.

Many people want to start living a green life but are confused by the avalanche of information being presented to South African consumers which is very conflicting and many companies mask themselves with a ‘green exterior’ without being 100% green compliant.” says Michelle Garforth-Venter.

Our environment and all the creatures that live within it are dependent on us making responsible development choices. In fact, the future of the human race depends on the decisions we make on this generations ‘watch’. We only have one planet to call home.” states Riaan Garforth-Venter.

We will be doing all the research and ground work on the so called green products out there, thus cutting away all the layers and finding out which products are truly green to the core.” says Luthuli Dlamini.

Comments Max Thongani, “It’s exciting to be part of the eco-revolution that is spreading across South Africa and passing on the facts that we’ve learnt, over the last few years, to the public who are hungry to learn more about how to save our future.”
