FLYGSKAM* is real and one way to offset carbon criticism is to shop at eco-conscious businesses so I’ve put together an eco-conscious tour of Cape Town. You’re welcome.
UPCYCLED BAGS Or what about an eco-conscious shopping tour? I can show you shops selling locally manufactured bags made from recycled plastic at The Joinery in Woodstock or Sealand Gear, winners of the accessory category of Twyg‘s first sustainable fashion awards.
Keen to try one of the most Instagrammable vegan cafes in the world? Take a spin past Nourish’d café in Observatory for delicious food and a warm, welcoming familia vibe.
There are some cute and quirky places that will take you off the beaten track, such as Faithjuice (juice in jars) at Noordhoek Farm Village or the upcycled Scone Shack near Cape Point.
If you want to see some eco-NPOs at work I’d introduce you to SEED, Soil for Life, the Beach Co-op and the Earthchild Project and what about foraging for edibles along the seashore with Roushanna Gray from Veld&Sea?
So many green spaces and places, so little time.
