Reduce your consumption of sugary drinks

The City has joined the global Partnership for Healthy Cities in an effort to build healthier communities by reducing risk factors for diseases such as obesity and diabetes. To help residents lead healthier lives, we have built 47 outdoor gyms across the city.

We are encouraged by the growing running community in Cape Town, with regular races held each weekend of between 1 000 and 27 000 people participating in the biggest events.

Continue to save electricity and water

The risk of load shedding has reduced substantially. However, we must remain vigilant in case Eskom directs us to reduce the electricity load at short notice.

Decrease the risk of load shedding even further by following these electricity saving tips:

  • Only iron what really needs to be ironed;
  • Switch off all unused appliances at the wall.
