are how connected almost everything we do is - no matter how removed city life may seem, it has its effects on nature somewhere down the line.
As with sustainable tourism, the model which is being exemplified by Hotel Verde', Africa's greenest hotel - the idea of minimising your footprint during your travels is ingrained in practically everything that they do - but it's made a lot easier to digest.
Just 400 metres from Cape Town International Airport and a 15-minute drive to the city’s main attractions, Hotel Verde offers visitors a carbon-neutral stay - with the latest innovative feather in the hotel's green cap being the Earth Hour Arts Night Market.
Expect a unique selection of Cape Town’s artists, designers and craftsmen, all coming together to mix arts with environmental responsibility and amazing food at Hotel Verde.
