As an Earth Friendly business myself, I was delighted to be able to visit Hotel Verde this week for a presentation by the owner and staff. I was looking for signs of "greenwashing" and was keen to see just how far Hotel Verde had taken the concept of "green". I was blown away. Every possibility of how to make the building Earth Friendly has been considered. From grey-water use to compostables, the innovative use of power and building material- not to mention the fierce support of "local" small suppliers. A true inspiration and one that should be applauded for daring to be the first "Green Hotel " in Africa.
