Concerned Consumers

Concerned Consumers (Launching 2013)

Concerned Consumers is a growing community of South Africans who are becoming increasingly interested in the origins of their food, and their right to make informed choices about the food they buy. With the new Consumer Protection Bill coming into force on the 1st April 2011, power has been placed in the hands of consumers to lay complaints against misleading labeling, non-transparent advertising, and unacceptable environmental, social and animal practices.

Microfarming (2010 to present)

In 2009 there was consensus in government around FAMILY FARMING as a solution to FOOD SECURITY ISSUES. What is lacking is an actual strategy. Let’s get government to allocate support to replicate micro-farming models already in action.

Coal vs Solar

Solar Revolution (2010 to present)

There's a reason we call ourselves 'Sunny South Africa'! Through investments in renewable energy technologies, large-scale energy-efficiency initiatives and other bright 'out-of-the-box' ways of doing things, South Africa can meet the electricity demand of a growing economy AND simultaneously reduce emissions.
