While visiting Gaborone make sure to stop by the Green Shop for a unique shopping experience as it is housed in a traditional hut, a rare sight to see within the bustling city of Gaborone. The shop is located in the Eco-Park of Somarelang Tikologo (Environment Watch Botswana) which is an NGO dedicated to creating awareness about environmental planning, resource conservation and waste management through community projects and demonstrations. All merchandise sold in the Green Shop is made from recycled or natural products crafted from local women and out of school youth groups and range from skin care products and accessories to home furnishings.

Somarelang Tikologo does a good job collecting waste for recycling. It shows how waste boxes and other materials may be turned to good use without being thrown away. it also fosters good relations with other recyclers. Meanwhile it serves tea and cakes in its café. Definitely worth a visit.

One of a handful of recycling points in Gaborone. The staff is trying so very hard to make a difference. Distell and Kgalagadi Breweries are involved as sponsors but staff need more help to make a real difference.

I held my wedding celebration here and its a great place if you do not want to hold your wedding in a home but you dont have a big budget for a place. I give all the credit though to the Lady who did our deco!
