An environmentally friendly guest House in Bedfordview, Johannesburg. While it is not housed in a 'green' building, it is managed in an environmentally responsible way: all recyclable waste is sorted and collected by a service provider (www.resolutionrecycling.co.za) and they have their own glass collection bank on the property. Organic Waste is fed to their small earthworm "farm" for vermiculture to produce nitrogen rich compost and liquid fertilizer for the garden (which is home to a prolific bird and butterfly population). As a result of all the recycling, municipal waste has been reduced to half a garbage bag a week. Guest House soaps and toiletries are vegetable based, and are purchased from suppliers that use low carbon methods of manufacture. The disposal hygiene sponges supplied are made from 60% recycled materials. Solar geysers and pool heaters are currently being installed.
