At Yogafriends Fuerteventura we try to reduce our environmental footprint.
We purchase ecological local produce, pulled from Fuerteventura´s soil (as much as possible). We use containers that can be refilled, as we have been using the same dish detergent bottle now for a good time. We use only natural cleaning products and soaps. We enjoy to walk, and ride bikes. Our clients will find a free bike for taking a ride. We aren’t perfect, but we try to make constant improvements to live simply and close to nature.
We invested into the best filter system of the market and our clients find filtered mineral water which comes from the local desalinitation plant, run by wind power, at their free disposition.
Casa Yoga runs on solar energy and in Casa Yogafriends we use solar power supply a big part of the warm water for showers, etc. We invested in low energy lighting, mostly LED and solar lamps to reduce the electricity consume. The used water (showers, washing, etc.) runs through a filtering system and is used in the garden to water the plants.
On Fuerteventura we do not have a great recycling center. Now we have come to be more aware of the products we buy and the packaging it is encased in. Not all plastic is recyclable, and recycling definitely isn’t a green answer.
Living on Fuerteventura has made us more aware of the cycle of stuff.
