Discover Hipilandia Hostels – Explore Colombia Sustainably. Relax and enjoy your stay in most eco friendly and fun environments
At our hostels, we are committed to implementing an effective environmental policy that addresses the impacts generated by our tourism activities, products, and services. Our policy focuses on promoting sustainability, reducing our ecological footprint, and fostering environmental awareness among our guests and staff.
Key elements of our environmental policy include:
1. Energy Efficiency:
We strive to minimize energy consumption by implementing energy-efficient practices throughout our operations. This includes using energy-saving lighting, implementing timers or sensors for lighting and air conditioning, and encouraging guests to conserve energy through guidelines and educational materials.
2. Water Conservation:
We are dedicated to responsible water management. Our policy includes measures to reduce water consumption, such as installing low-flow faucets and toilets, promoting water-saving practices to guests, and regularly checking for leaks or water wastage. We also encourage guests to be mindful of their water usage during their stay.
3. Waste Management:
We prioritize waste reduction, recycling, and proper disposal practices. Our policy includes the implementation of recycling bins throughout the hostel, separating recyclable materials from general waste. We strive to minimize single-use plastics and encourage guests to use reusable items and refillable water bottles. We also collaborate with local recycling facilities and support community initiatives for waste management.
4. Local and Sustainable Products:
We promote the use of local and sustainable products in our operations. Our policy focuses on sourcing locally produced food and beverages, supporting local businesses and farmers, and offering organic and environmentally friendly options when possible. We prioritize products with minimal packaging and strive to reduce waste generated by our food and beverage services.
5. Environmental Education and Awareness:
We believe in the importance of environmental education and awareness. Our policy includes providing information and educational materials to guests about the unique biodiversity and ecosystems of the Amazon region. We organize nature-oriented activities, such as guided eco-tours and educational talks, to foster appreciation for the natural environment. We also train our staff on environmental practices and encourage their active participation in promoting sustainable behaviors.
By adhering to this environmental policy, we aim to minimize our environmental impact while providing a comfortable and enjoyable experience for our guests. We strive to be a responsible and sustainable hostel, contributing to the preservation of the natural beauty and biodiversity of Leticia Amazonas.
