De Zoete Rust Guest House is not only supporting Going Green, we actively participate!

Protecting our planet for our children is important for all of us at De Zoete Rust Guest House.  We have made special efforts to create a sustainable environment that will in a small, but consistent manner make a difference.
Join our ‘Going Green’ initiative and contribute in an easy, but effective way when staying at De Zoete Rust Guest House by:

  • Recycling all waste.
  • Room and pool water is solar heated
  • All our bio-degradable waste is turned into on-site compost and some is added to the worm farm which produces excellent liquid nutrients for the garden.
  • We prefer to use Silky Chickens to de-bug the garden – a poison free environment and that is why the frogs frequent our property.
  • Cleaning detergents for the house and your rooms are natural products and environment friendly due to the sensitivity of our septic tank facilities.
  • Making sure that only the necessary lights in each room are switched on at night.
  • Ceiling fans encourage minimal use of air conditioners.
  • Drink tap water as opposed to bottled water – We have natural water purifiers on-site.

LIGHTING – all lighting are LEDs, some even solar powered
COOLING & HEATING – At De Zoete Rust Guest House, guests have a choice of air conditioning or ceiling fan cooling.
GAS – Our gas hobs ensure a scrumptious gourmet breakfast & dinner 365 days of the year!
APPLIANCES – We only use appliances as needed and switch it off when not in use.
MUNICIPAL WATER – Our laundry is laundered with environmentally friendly, chemical free detergents.  You can feel the difference.
RECYCLING – All waste is separated and recycled.  We recycle paper, glass, plastic and all organic material.
AMENETIES – We prefer glass, but in order to prevent our guests accidently cutting themselves from a broken bottle in the shower, we use PET bottles (Polyethylene Terephthalate).
GENERATOR – you will NEVER be left in the dark when you stay at De Zoete Rust.
COMPOST – Compost that is generated as a result of our perishable materials generated from the kitchen, garden and guest house has created sustainable compost through which the soil and plants at De Zoete Rust Guest House flourish.  You might see the odd pumpkin or tomato plant popping up in the garden – that is due to the compost used.
GREEN HOUSE – we are planning a green house on the western side of the property where we aim to plant and harvest all veggies, salads and herbs for home consumption.

At De Zoete Rust Guesthouse we CARE for our environment!
