The 2015 South African Eco Film Festival is made possible by generous contributions from our sponsors:
MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet is one of South Africa’s biggest fundraising programmes and allows you to make a difference, just by shopping.
Every time you use your card at a partner stores they’ll give back a percentage of your purchase value, on your behalf, to the school or charity you choose at absolutely no cost to you!
As one of only a few South African carbon neutral businesses, Reliance produces 100% Certified Organic Compost, and has had its composting technology approved as a Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction method according to the guidelines of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Over the years it has diverted over 13 million cubic metres of green material from landfill sites, preventing more than 750 000 tons of carbon dioxide gas escaping into the atmosphere – a substantial contribution to reducing the impact caused by climate change.
The company’s mission is to Grow Greener Generations, and it does this by getting involved in the community, through sponsorships, tree-planting projects and developing communal food gardens. No surprise either that much of the company’s income is ploughed back into the community to build sustainable environments.
Sustainable.co.za is an online eco store that aims to make it easy for the average person, business or household to improve their environmental ‘footprint’. While many people are aware that serious local and global environmental problems exist, and that they are likely to be contributing to them in their daily lives, they have to do substantial research to find out which activities of theirs are the most environmentally damaging, as well as to find suppliers of goods or services which would help them reduce their ‘footprint’.
Few people have the time or inclination for such research, yet with access to the right products and information it is surprisingly easy to live a much more environmentally sustainable life. Sustainable.co.za hopes to help people achieve this by providing the necessary information and a range of eco-friendly products, such as solar power, solar water heating, wind power, eco lighting and water saving products and more, all in one location.

Ballo was founded in Cape Town in 2013. The company creates high quality, locally designed and crafted wooden sunglasses with spring hinges and polarized lenses that provide superior glare reduction and UV protection, all at an affordable price. The frames of their sunglasses are as environmentally friendly as possible with all wood veneers made out of off-cuts from local furniture manufactures, repurposing potential waste, and over 40% of every frame made out of an extremely strong recycled paper material. The strength of the frames makes them prescription ready.
