Responsible tourism: Jordan weekend yoga retreat

Environment

During this retreat you will be staying at the Feynan Eco-lodge, owned by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature. Feynan Eco-lodge is mentioned as one of the best 25 Eco-lodges in the world by National Geographic Traveler magazine. The award winning solar powered Feynan Eco-lodge offers the most developed Eco-experience in Jordan. They want to ensure a sustainable future for the nature and the locals. They minimize the carbon footprint at their accommodation and through the experiences they offer. The lodge is entirely solar powered with natural ventilation and all water comes from a local spring. The solar power is only used for essential items like the fridge etc. The lodge itself is every night lighted by candles, besides the environmental benefits it also gives a romantic touch to it. To heat water they depend on an extensive solar heating system.
To minimize waste and utilize resources, the lodge has composting facilities where waste is transformed into organic fertilizer.

Community

Feynan Eco-lodge has the mission to contribute to the socioeconomic development of the area. All employees are from the local communities surrounding Dana Nature Reserve. This helps to create the authentic atmosphere and provides an income for the locals. They also have employed locals for their candle making and leather workshops. The Eco-lodge also sources services from the local community. This gives the people an extra income. Such as using local drivers who provide shuttle services to and from the lodge, purchasing food from the nearby village and buying fresh bread made by a local Bedouin woman.
A shop at the Eco-lodge also showcases and sells a lot of artisan crafts and artwork from local communities of Jordan's nature reserves. They also have started Bedouin cultural experiences, the fee for these activities goes directly to the family who hosted the experience.
Further more they have bought clay water jars from a women's cooperative close to Petra which also reduces the amount of waste.
