Let’s introduce ourselves first: we are Laurens Wiersma and Maike van Grootel and we recently started the foundation Sunny Side Up. Sunny Side Up aims to support sustainable energy in developing countries. We believe that everybody has the right to clean, safe, affordable and reliable energy. Therefore we will devote the coming year to support several sustainable energy projects in Africa and Asia.
We have spend our last days preparing our vehicle, but now ‘Big Willie’ is ready for the overland adventure. Off course this Sunny Side Up vehicle is equipped with several portable solar solutions itself. We have a WakaWaka with us which is a solar unit small enough to carry it anywhere. And an Ecoboxx which has foldable solar panels that can support us with all the electricity we need while camping. Thank you In2Brands!

The seventh annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, 2014. Every year, autism organisations around the world commemorate the day. They work tirelessly to increase and develop world knowledge of the autism crisis and impart information regarding the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention.
Ecoboxx founders, Ryan Steytler and Paul Hubers, together with co owner and director of international business, Hugo Blaisse, recently attended the Bridge House School charity evening. Standup comedian, Nik Rabinowitz entertained the crowd with his comedic performance act.
The evening was a huge success as money was raised for new sports facilities at the school; our Ecoboxx product sold for more than R4 000.
Ecoboxx will be present at the annual event for the Cape Autism Charity Trust at the exclusive Longridge Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. This is a fantastic annual event, which raises money for the Dream Tree School for children who have autism, in Somerset West – www.thedreamtreeschool.co.za. This year, the event will host a delightful night of dinner and tango, and will also include an auction by the country’s leading auctioneer, Joye Burke.
