Ecologic side of our eco-lodge
Nowadays everyone is talking about ways to protect the environment. Individuals are making an effort to take part in improving and conserving our environment. Our lodge is also eco-friendly and aiming at keeping a balance between man-made items and natural wonders. Our eco-lodge also takes care of recycling the garbage and using a balanced amount of water.
Recent surveys have stated that many eco-lodges are not taking part in saving our environment. They perform reckless behavior which damages the natural beauty of their surroundings. By reducing the use of fossil fuel energy and replacing it with solar energy, we can also contribute to a better environment.
Our lodge uses dual flush, LED lamps, grease trap, solar lamps in outdoors, movement sensor lamps, and septic tank with three chambers. We also use a water treatment bacteria and drainage network to filter into the ground. We try to use as much as recycled wood and biodegradable soaps. Our water comes from the natural springs of Mindo which passes through multiple filters before usage.
There has been increased popularity in the world of the usage of solar energy. Our outdoor lamps are trendy and eco-friendly. We as well as experts have assumed that renewable energy will be part of everyone’s life in the next few years. That’s why we have taken major steps in taking care of the ecological side of our lodges more than the others in the market.
