Environmental management measures

ORGANIC FARMING IN OUR ECO FINCA TECINA


  • It is a 100% ecological garden with a habitat over 9,500 m2, divided into 19 plots, a system in which the lives of human beings are combined in a respectful and beneficial way with those of plants and animals. 
  • In our restaurants we offer vegan and vegetarian alternatives. The ingredients are free of chemicals, colourings and preservatives, we collect them in our Eco Finca Tecina or we buy them from local producers respecting the "kilometre 0" production.
  • Everything about Eco Finca Tecina is sustainable. Plantations are designed to make the most of natural resources. 
  • Based on the principles of permaculture, agricultural design based on the patterns and characteristics of the natural ecosystem. 
  • We do not use machinery, this allows the soil to remain natural and undamaged. 
  • We respect the natural growth of plants and use only organic fertilisers. 
  • We use natural resources in a balance way and use crop rotation and association techniques, allowing each plant to fulfil a role in relation to others. 

WATER:


  • Reducing and rationalising use with dual-flush toilets and tap aerators.
  • Drip irrigation system and soil moisture control.
  • Choose green programme to reduce changing of robes and towels in rooms and at pools.
  • Timed-flow taps in the toilets of common areas.
  • Active oxygen washing. We use cold water, oxygen and electricity to generate ozone gas molecules that help clean clothes with minimal use of detergent.

ELECTRICAL ENERGY

  • LED television screens

  • Movement sensors in poorly lit areas during the day.
  • Purchase of more energy-efficient appliances.
  • Use of solar energy.
