GreenCorfu.com is a website that wants to promote a different Corfu, a Corfu that is not so well known either to Greeks or to people from all over the world. Corfu is a touristic island but has more to offer than golden sandy beaches, sun and a crystal clear blue sea. Corfu is a green island, because of its lush vegetation all year round, full of olive trees, cypresses, and a wealth of other plants, insects, birds and animals.
There are a lot of initiatives promoting alternative tourism on Corfu. Things like walking, cycling, horse riding and meditation holidays. Especially walking and meditation are hot items.
There are also many people producing local products, ranging from organic olive oil, vegetables, fruit and things such as jams, preserves, honey and olive oil soap to artifacts made from olive wood, glass, leather and other forms of art.
There is a whole alternative community forming on the island, oriented towards a natural way of living, contact with and respect for nature, away from consumerism and the hectic way of life of the western world.
We are trying to bring together in one website all the above initiatives and enhance cooperation between people, as well as advertising this to the outside world.
