SUSTAINABILITY, RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND CARE OF THE AREA: THE COMMITMENT OF ALFAJÍA DE ANTONIO
For Lola and for me it is not an option, it is an obligation to do all our work causing the least environmental impact, we could not do otherwise because if we would not go against our conscience.
That is why we take care that our purchases of products for use in the hotel fulfill the guarantees of being the least harmful to the environment in which we live. These guarantees are that the paper, both folios and hygienic we use has the seal of sustainable product, that our detergents are ecological and biodegradable, our bleach is no longer bleach, it is a similar product in powder but ecological and biodegradable. The soaps to wash plates and glasses follow the same premise, that although they are more expensive in their acquisition, they affect less to the means and to ourselves! (since we do not add chemicals in the washes)
The industrial laundry that is an external company and makes a lot of our washes uses biodegradable bleach. We recycle all the garbage generated by our hotel and, although, it means more work, it helps us to feel that what we do has “meaning”.
In our purchases of towels and sheets we try to make them national products to promote the nearest economy and generate less pollution in bringing products, which we have close to us, from far away places.
We recommend our customers fill water from natural sources of the town to consume less bottled water and we encourage them to leave the vehicle parked and visit the villages of Poqueira Ravine on foot.
Part of the firewood that we use in the stove of our social lounge is obtained from the pruning of trees from our own farm.
In this farm, which is very close to the hotel, we plant native trees, we have our own garden, right now only with small production for our own consumption, and in this farm we do not add any type of herbicide or chemical product.
We also understand that these measures must be increased and improved every day, so we are grateful for any advice that our clients, neighbors, friends, family members can offer us ….
AS A GUARANTEE OF THIS, WE HAVE ADMITTED TO THE ASSOCIATION OF THE EUROPEAN FORUM OF SUSTAINABLE TOURISM IN SIERRA NEVADA
And as a commitment to all this we have said, we have recently joined the Association of the European Forum of Sustainable Tourism of the Sierra Nevada. This means that we have acquired a commitment for which we are not only an accommodation in the National Park and Natural Park of Sierra Nevada, but we also work for a responsible relationship between tourism and the environment, with the aim of conserving the natural heritage. of the peoples that make up this rich ecosystem in the provinces of Granada and Almeria.
From this association we are adhering to the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Natural Spaces, with all the commitments and efforts that this implies for the benefit of nature and the environment
The Natural Area of Sierra Nevada is the most extensive of all the national parks and its altitudes reach up to 3482 meters of Mulhacen, the top of the Iberian Peninsula. In addition, there are 19 other peaks that exceed 3000 meters in height.
