Social entrepreneurs Anthony and Shafiek are the proud producers of these trendy trees made from 100% recycled Beach Hut wood.
The Save Our Beach Hut campaign launched in 2020 to preserve, protect and promote Cape Town’s most iconic structures, has gained momentum.
The Save Our Beach Hut movement has created employment opportunities for locals Shafiek Solomons of Grassy Park and Anthony Cockburn of Plumstead. The waste wood from the Beach huts taken down at Muizenberg now has new life thanks to Shafiek and Anthony.
These social entrepreneurs are the proud producers of these trendy trees made from 100% recycled Beach Hut wood.
When work started to refurbish the old and worn Beach Huts at Muizenberg, we realised the opportunity for people to own a piece of Cape Town’s heritage at home. Our purpose is to preserve, protect and promote these iconic structures and create opportunity for the communities they impact.
Shafiek and Anthony partnered with the Beach Hut Trust to manage the entire process, from taking down the huts to sanding the wood and repurposing them into Christmas trees, robust enough to brighten your patio or garden!
We appreciate the collaboration with proceeds from tree sales going towards job creation and the support of The Beach Hut Trust.
Communities have embraced this public and private collaboration to tackle the issue of the degradation of the Beach Huts in Muizenberg and St. James and to raise awareness about the true value of these huts.
A limited number of these trees are available in different sizes, some with LED lights, and will contribute to the creation of a sustainable Beach Hut industry that can fund the ongoing maintenance needs.
