Welcome to the May Edition

More and more travellers are becoming increasingly aware of the environmental impact of personal and business travel. For instance, did you know that a flight from London to Cape Town emits 1.1 tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere? It is thus becoming increasingly important to understand how you could offset this imapct by incorporating eco-travel principles into your next trip. Many travellers are looking at offsetting their flights and travels through schemes like Treeflights. On an easier note - you could make the smarter choice and ensure that your destination and hospitality providers are eco-friendly and making a conscious effort to reduce emmisions throughout their day-to-day operations. 

Greenlea Irene Guest House is regarded as a leader in promoting environmental values. It actively manages the environmental impact of its products and services to ensure an eco-friendly environment.  Greenlea is energy-efficient, sustainable, green and environmentally aware, setting an example to other establishments.

Did You Know? 

 
 All Greenlea guest rooms - including self-catering suites - are supplied with hot water from solar heating systems, reducing electricity consumption by 30%.  Lighting is powered by energy-efficient bulbs only and the en-suite toilets have low-flow alternatives.

Rain water is collected and used wherever possible. Such focus on green awareness and eco-friendly accommodation in Centurion would be hard to find elsewhere.

Two years ago Greenlea started implementing and investing in an ongoing process - including recycling - to reduce their guests’ impact on the environment.
