South African homes are filled with climate warriors, recycling champions and little witches and wizards with green fingers. Now DStv and Cartoon Network (DStv Channel 301) are helping kids to clean up the whole planet with the Climate Champions initiative. This is a youth-oriented program aimed at stimulating awareness around climate change and other environmental issues. And it's getting a very special home, in a place where kids learn as they play.
The Grubby Shores add-on will bring cool climate clean-up challenges to the Island Adventures platform on the MyDStv App. Your kids will be able to play characters from their favourite Cartoon Network shows – like We Bare Bears, Craig of The Creek, The Amazing World of Gumball, DC Super Hero Girls and the Teen Titans – and put them to work cleaning up Grubby Shores until the beach is spic and span.
Did you say prizes?
Yes, there are real-world rewards, too!
DIY Veggie garden kits
DStv and Cartoon Network are also giving away 10 DIY Vegetable Garden kits each week (to the value of R75,000) to get kids started on the ultimate in environmentally conscious consumption (it’s also a great educational tool).
1 lucky DStv family stands to win a holiday getaway (to the value of R50,000).
NB! Keeping that carbon footprint child-sized, none of the prizes will involve air travel. These eco-tastic prizes are focussed on taking care of the Earth so that it can take care of us.
