This huge natural legacy has been neglected and exploited for many years in the name of tourism and its profits. But the last decades the ecological conscience of many people on Corfu has been rising. There is an organic shop on Corfu, Oikozoi, run cooperatively by local organic farmers. There are also more and more places offering eco-holidays, such as Bioporos and Honigtal, but also many others. Other issues where Corfu is running late but trying to catch up are recycling and green energy. Read more about these on our dedicated pages. And, last but not least, there are initiatives starting up that aim to take ecology to a higher level, implementing permaculture, eco-building, sustainable living and art, such as Artemis Grove.
In conclusion, it looks like Corfu is slowly but steadily becoming “Greener”!
