Introducing Planet Protector™

Planet Protector is a South African campaign to foster a softer consumer-footprint on the planet. It aims to inspire people, brand owners and businesses to produce and consume more consciously.

The environmental impact of humanity’s unsustainable production and consumption of throw-away products and packaging rivals that of climate change. We need to change the game, now. Because there is no Planet B.

Planet Protector employs 1) a certification scheme and 2) a social media platform to mobilise, motivate and monitor change. It celebrates brave steps towards sustainability whilst challenging laggards to up their game.
