Footprint

Fynbos Ridge's Carbon Footprint


Owners Liz and Brian Phillips are committed to doing their bit for the environment. Over a period of years the Fynbos has been restored to its natural state by undertaking a burning schedule and continuous removal of all invasive alien vegetation. Fynbos is a collective term which describes the vegetation indigenous to the Southern Cape and includes well-known plant species such as proteas and ericas. In 2001 Fynbos Ridge was proclaimed a Private Nature Reserve by the Western Cape Nature Conservation Board. Many birds, butterflies and small mammals have now made Fynbos Ridge their home.

Steps we have taken to protect the environment and conserve natural resources include:

 
  • Landscaping with indigenous vegetation.
  • Installed solar heating.
  • Commissioned our own biological sewage treatment plant.
  • Use biodegradable cleaning products.
  • Recycle refuse.
  • Conserve rainwater.

"Fynbos Ridge is proud to have been awarded Carbon Neutral Approved status. Annually trees are planted to off-set our carbon footprint, and guests are encouraged to take part in this initiative."
