Greenpop, Reliance Compost & Sunshine Cinema joined together to host the POP-ping Green Zone and launch their Reliance Compost Creations Competition at the Cape Getaway Show on the picturesque Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West from 14 to 16 March.
The Green Zone:
The Green Zone, created by Reliance Compost, Greenpop & the Sunshine Cinema, was a huge success at the Cape Getaway Show this past weekend! With over 75 TreeCo trees and 380 compost bags lining the area, the place was absolutely decked out with sustainable décor. Greenpop and Reliance Compost made sure that any who visited the Green Zone were entertained by a creation station, sack races, a movie theatre inside of our Mercedes-Benz overland truck, carbon footprint calculation stations and a couch made entirely of compost bags. The Getaway Show admitted that had there been a “green” award, then the Green Zone surely would have won it – however, they did win runner up for the most creative area at the festival out of 250 exhibitors! According to Reliance Compost Marketing Manager Mieke van Blommestein, “The Green Village was POPPING, offering fun activities for the entire family. South Africa has such a variety of amazing outdoor and travel experiences to offer and it was great having everything under one roof - very successful event!”
Greenpop & Reliance Launch Compost Creations Competition:
At the Getaway Show, Greenpop and Reliance Compost launched their Reliance Compost Creations Competition, in which participants compete to make the most innovative creation from a Reliance Compost bag, with the goal of winning a FREE week at the Trees for Zambia Festival of Action 2014 - INCLUDING transport from SA to Zambia! People of all ages popped into the Creation Corner at Getaway Show to fashion tote bags, skirts, animals, bikinis and even a wedding dress to enter into the competition. Some of our youngest creators showed off all the fabulous entries in a Reliance Compost Fashion Show for all of those passing through the Green Zone. The competition is off to a great start, and Greenpop looks forward to all the entries we will receive over the next month – all who wish to enter can pick up a compost bag from our offices at 17 Commercial St. Competition ends 11 April.
