Ed's Note

November/December 2012

I t's not hard to save the world these days. Hybrid cars and energy efficient washing machines are all the rage. After years of being stuck on society's back burner, the environment is popular again.

It's cool to be green and this tree hugger is loving it!

So, how can we start "going green", all whilst maintaining one's hipness? There are loads of "baby steps" you can make in the on-going greening of your own lifestyle. Install energy efficient light bulbs. Unplug things that glow (like your TV, cell phone charger and printers). Recycle your electronics. It really is easier than you think. In this issue we've taken the whole "going green"-thing to heart and we've focussed on careers that are helping to protect the environment. The green industry has been growing at a phenomenal pace over the past few years. So if you're looking to identify some lasting and unique green careers, you've got the right mag in your hands!

On your marks... Get set... Go green!

Enjoy! n


Liezl Maclean EDITOR liezl@sacareerfocus.co.za From a team that worked around the clock to bring the best career advice there is to offer, we wish you a blessed festive season (and a loooooong summer vay-cay with friends and family), and a heartfelt thank you to you, the SACF readers. You are truly the coolest in the world! Enjoy the holiday and see you again in 2013!

All the SACF team wants for Christmas is...

All I want is boring mommy-stuff (like more hours in my day, to go shopping alone and going to the bathroom in peace and quiet!). Marinda Keyter - Subscription Manager A frozen margarita time-machine so that I can travel back in time to laugh at my old self while sipping on a margarita! Bronwyn Kemsley - Graphic Designer Dinner with Patsy and Eddie from Absolutely Fabulous! Melindi Coetzee - Public Relations Manager Time with family and friends, a great ski slope, sunshine, music... Wayne Mallinson - Editor in Chief Eva Longoria Dewald Davidtsz - Marketing Manager A lovely vacation at the coast with loads of resting and sightseeing. Complete with lots of shopping for all kinds of pretty girly stuff! LOL. But lots of love is all I really want this holiday season, plus some delicious dark chocolate... Marlene Rodriques - Admin Executive
