Rickshaw power highlights sustainable energy clause

2010-03-13 00:00

Colourful rickshaws took to the streets of Durban as part of the Movement towards Sustainable Energy Cause, a campaign to change the way South Africans view energy. Rickshaw pullers and supporters made their way from Anton Lembede Street, just before the Town Hall and turned right into Aliwal Street, and right again into Dr Pixley KaSeme Street. Armed with banners, Movement towards Sustainable Energy Cause members handed out T-shirts to onlookers. Rickshaw pullers were encouraged to participate as they employ their own manpower to commute and embody the essence of a sustainable output. They carried onlookers, supporters and tourists through the city centre to highlight and change the way South Africans view energy and to encourage them to take cognisance of their own output.
