Every minute over a million plastic bottles make their way into peoples’ homes and ultimately into the world’s oceans. Only 17% of plastic is ever recycled.
The Mother City has had enough. The slow move towards preserving the Cape Town luxury of pristine beaches and waves has begun. Here’s where you can help to make a difference in turning the wheels of progress.
Go Au Natural
Nude Foods is Cape Town’s first true green grocer, where money won’t buy you a shopping bag. You won’t find any plastic within these walls.
This inaugural store will be based at Constitution Street, close to the District Six Museum, from November and asks shoppers to PBYO when it comes to getting their goods home. If you don’t have a container handy, you can pick up a reusable, 100% compostable one to pack your items into. Just remember to bring it along next time.
Here you will find a luxury Cape Town range of non-GMO wholefoods available by weight so you can buy only what you need. The foods are delicious and nutritious and the prices aren’t too bad either.
A range of body and cleaning products are also on offer. These are also available in a take only what you need basis. Eco brands like Faithful to Nature, the Ethical co-op and Komati Foods are already on board with more coming soon.
Nude Foods is the first step in low impact waste-free living for Cape Town and sure to be something that takes off in this trendsetting city.
