ON THE BEACH GUESTHOUSE: GREEN ACTS FOR SUSTAINABLE TOURISM
We separate and recycle plastic and glass; we also try to reduce waste e.g. we choose to refill large containers in the rooms with guest amenities in order to prevent all the small shampoo and body wash bottles from being thrown away on a daily basis.
We provide our guests with complimentary body products that are cruelty free and that do not contain any harmful parabens.
We grow our own herbs and purchase fresh organic produce from Papillon Organic Farm outside Jeffreys Bay.
In an effort to conserve water we have removed all alien plant species and designed an indigenous garden; we further more only water at night to avoid any losses due to evaporation. On The Beach has also installed flow restrictors in all the showerheads.
In an effort to conserve our dunes we have also planted indigenous flora over them, thereby preventing sand excavation.
We firmly believe in and practice fair trade principals by ensuring fair compensation and treatment of all our workers to the benefit of the local community.
We make use of energy saving LED light bulbs and have installed battery powered LED lighting strips all around the guesthouse. To further reduce our demand on the energy grid we have installed solar geysers and heat pumps; we also cook our guests meals on a gas stove.
