Protea Wilds Retreat is continually moving closer to becoming greener and more environmentally friendly. We recycle, we only use fully biodegradable, organic cleaning agents where possible, that is also not tested on animals. We conserve water where we can, plant indigenous, and we save energy by phasing out normal bulbs and using solar heating for the pool.
