At Kenton Eco Estate, we don’t just talk about sustainability—we live it every day.

Kenton Eco Estate’s Commitment to Eco-Living Excellence

At Kenton Eco Estate, we believe in more than just providing homes; we believe in fostering a lifestyle rooted in authentic eco-living. With a dedication to preserving the natural beauty of our surroundings and uplifting our communities, we strive to set a new standard in sustainable living.
One of the defining features of Kenton Eco Estate is our commitment to preserving the natural landscape. Spanning over vast hectares of dense coastal forest and dune forest, only 12% of the entire estate will ever be developed, allowing nature to thrive untouched. Additionally, homeowners undertake not to have walls or fences separating their properties, fostering a sense of community and connection with the environment.

In line with our ethos of Honest to Goodness Living, we are proud to introduce a groundbreaking project aimed at keeping our beaches pristine. Recognising the importance of environmental stewardship, we have implemented a system of lightweight receptacles at our main boardwalks. These receptacles provide residents with a convenient way to pick up rubbish during their beach visits, promoting a clean and sustainable coastline.

But we didn’t stop there. In our effort to minimise waste and support our local community, we commissioned Jo Styles of THE MARKET TRADERS STORE in Port Alfred. They are a collective of passionate crafters dedicated to sustainable living. Through this collective effort, old clothes donated by the public and various charity stores are upcycled into various crafts and products, reducing landfill waste and uplifting local communities.

The centrepiece of this initiative is the creation of beach cleanup bags made from outsized denims, denim off-cuts, and upcycled woven netting/shade cloth for the base. These robust bags not only serve as a practical solution for waste collection but also contribute to the preservation of our environment.

As we speak, these beach cleanup bags are being crafted with care and dedication, ready to serve their duty in just a few weeks’ time. It’s initiatives like these that embody our commitment to Honest to Goodness Living, where eco-conscious practices are put into action for the betterment of our planet and our communities.
At Kenton Eco Estate, we don’t just talk about sustainability—we live it every day. Join us in our journey towards a greener, more sustainable future, where every action we take reflects our dedication.

“We have a responsibility to leave for future generations a planet that is healthy and habitable by all species.” —David Attenborough
