Reduce: We don’t buy individually packed products to avoid this unnecessary non-recyclable garbage. The ham, butter, cereals and jams are all bought in bulk, as is the shampoo and conditioner which is provided in special dispensers in the shower. The purified water available in your room is also not bottled to reduce excess waste.
Reuse: Whenever possible we reuse wood, plastic, metal, and fabric, as long as it meets our standards. As for all that which does not, we donate to people who will use it.
Recycle: All of the refuse is conscientiously separated into recyclables and non-recyclables, and the organic matter is put into the I.S.R.O.W. The recyclables such as paper, plastic, aluminum and glass are collected and transported to a recycling center in Merida 69 miles away.
Finally, the non-recyclable materials, less than 3 bags a week, are brought to the municipal trash collector in Celestún.
All of the water in the hotel goes through a filtering process and is reused.
In order to guarantee the success of this process, please do not let any harmful chemicals or substances enter the toilet or other drains.
