This year’s re*think theme: ‘Save our Rhino’

2012-10-17 00:00

LIBERTY Midlands Mall has initiated and implemented the re*think campaign in the past few years which focuses primarily on a number of green initiatives. This year’s re*think theme is re*think: Save OUR Rhino”.

Taking re*think into the community, Liberty Midlands Mall invited schools in and around Pietermaritzburg to submit works of art, created from recycled material, in the form of paintings and sculptures related to the theme “Save Our Rhino”.

Schools in the area were hard at work over the past few weeks in order to meet the deadline of their submissions which closed on October 15, 2012.

“It is extremely delightful to see the number of school entries in this year’s re*think: “Save OUR Rhino” project. The creative and innovative pieces of artwork produced this year are highly commendable and credit must go to the learners and educators who dedicated their time … to the project,” said the mall’s centre manager, Umi Khan.

The entries in each category will be displayed at the mall in the Wimpy and Edgars court between October 18-21, 2012, with an independent panel of judges selecting the top five in each category on October 17, 2012. The winning school in each category will receive R10 000 for their school.

In support of the re*think project, Liberty Midlands Mall will be giving away 100 free eco-friendly shopping bags per day, to the first 100 shoppers from October 18-20, 2012. Look out for the re*think: “Save our Rhino” advert in The Witness from October 18-20, cut out the advert and bring it to the mall to claim your bag, only between the mentioned dates.
