The Green Lifestyle
Welcome to the Green Lifestyle section of the Brightwater Commons. Your resource center to Environmental interesting links, desktop backgrounds, discussions, opinion polls, and more.
The Brightwater Commons team started the sustainability journey four years ago with a carbon footprint audit (including water and waste) and reduction and offsetting program. Several of the major milestones and achievements have been reached. The Brightwater Commons' Going Green Campaign has won two coveted South African Council of Shopping Centres (SACSC) awards. The first was a Gold Footprint Award (in the Integrated Category) followed by the SACSC's Spectrum Award, the highest accolade honouring achievements in innovation, creativity, vision and excellence.
Brightwater Commons is proud to announce that we have partnered up with a well-known South African recycling company called REMADE.

No doubt, the economic situation has impacted on the pockets of many people and the trend that landscapers are currently seeing in the requests from their middle income clients is the choice to include more fruit trees and vegetable spots in their gardens. Homeowners are also investing in earthworm bins and recycling their left-over food and organic waste through vermiculture in their gardens as earthworm compost.
This is still on-going so please make sure you recycle and drop off at the centre. Our green banks are situated at Adventure Golf and Cross Street entrance...
