The term 'Going Green' seems to have taken on a life of it's own in the last few years. No more is it a reference of envy, or a term to let people know how nauseated one feels. People the world over are clamouring to prove to the world that they are fabulous citizens by doing their part to save this oh so gorgeous planet of ours. From recycling and reusing products, to economical recharging devices that eat up only the smallest amount of energy, Even fashion designers are coming on board by producing clothing that is eco friendly and not too expensive. The latest brand to show their support is
Land Rover.

The Range Rover Evoque is the smallest, lightest and greenest car that Land Rover has ever produced which makes it perfect for city driving. To help launch the global Range Rover Evoque Pulse of the City campaign, Land Rover South Africa has collaborated with four local influencers (people who have made a blinging difference) across various platforms. Hlubi Mboya, best known for her role as HIV positive Nandipha in the hugely popular daily soap, Isidingo and HIV/AIDS ambassador throughout Africa; and Dr Sarah Britten, a Strategic Planning Director by day and blogger and writer by night; Craig Jacobs, brainchild behind local Eco fashion brand, Fundudzi; and Siphiwe Mpye, deputy editor of GQ Magazine and recently voted one of South Africa’s most stylish men. These gals and guys will be working with the team to launch the Evoque brand during 2011 and 2012.
So let's discover something interesting about one of our 'City Shapers' shall we? Johannesburg born and bred, Dr. Sarah Britten is a Strategic Planning Director by day and blogger and writer by night. She is also a fantastic author. One of our favourite things about her has to be what she does in her spare time. Ladies, you're going to love this. She love's to paint, not with oils and watercolours. No - that's too blah for this gal. She paints with lipstick. Absolutely genius! Talk about a talent to rave about.

The Dying Rose
She loves to unwind after sundowners at a darling little place on 4th Avenue in Parkhurst called Bistro Vine. Theirdessert ROCKS. Be sure to order the Verrines – a small taste of each dessert in a glass, a clever idea, perfect for people who always end up wondering if the dessert their dining companion ordered is nicer than theirs. Not to mention, it's just the right amount of every dessert, so as not to pig out after you've slaved away at the gym, and still ample enough to delight in!
Who knew that going green would be such fun, or taste as good?
