Cape Town Green Map

Cape Town is humming with a growing green and sustainable living consciousness out of which green projects, markets, events, accommodation, eco products and services, green attractions, alternative energy sites, recycling projects and responsible tourism are rapidly emerging.

Cape Town Green Map has joined the Green Map movement - a community of over four thousand local green living sites around ...the world. Cape Town Green Map is powered by Open Green Map - an interactive mapmaking tool that quickly allows us to share green sites such as: biodiversity hot spots, green spaces, sustainable living projects, alternative energy sites, recycling projects and drop-offs, local green events, markets, eateries, responsible tourism, green accommodation, eco products and services, green attractions, alternative energy sites and more.
