Responsible tourism: Lanzarote garden apartment, self catering for 2
As keen gardeners and environmentalists, we have used upcycled materials during the renovation work we carried out on the finca. We are also committed to dispose of any debris created during refurbishment responsibly, as well as encouraging our guests to recycle their rubbish correctly.
We aim for low energy consumption both for ourselves and visitors staying in our property, by using LED lighting and electronic equipment for instance and encouraging guests to switch things off when not in use as a matter of course during their stay.
We encourage all of our guests to use water as sparingly as possible as this is a very precious resource on Lanzarote, for example all WC“s provide an eco flush option and all appliances in the farmhouse are either double or triple A rated, so maximising energy efficiency.
To ensure the garden apartment at our Finca has a comfortable base temperature, we have insulated some walls, whilst also providing a wood-burning stove to provide any warmth required during the occasional cooler winter evenings.
In addition to providing low energy consumption properties, we also aim to support our local community by shopping locally, using local produce and employing local residents in whatever capacity we can. This includes employing local gardeners, maintenance and cleaning personnel.
We always go out of our way to encourage all of our guests to support local businesses, especially those in close proximity to Finca Botanico such as shops, bars and restaurants so helping to generate further income for local residents. We highlight these establishments in our guest handbook.
These guest notes also emphasise the importance of using local outdoor food markets (as opposed to supermarkets) where organic fruit and vegetables are available for sale in order to support local growers and producers. This also applies to supporting local craft workers and artists wherever possible during the renovation and decorating process.
We have an in house recycling policy and ask all of our guests to recycle their rubbish accordingly, providing bins and receptacles for this purpose.
