We are concern about our environment and our responsibility towards future generations. We have to face the fact that our planet is experiencing a serious change and we must do something about it if we want to make the world a better place to live. Since a few years we have been driving our operation toward environmental protection and trying to dramatically diminish our footprint on the planet.
HELP PROTECT OUR ONE AND ONLY EARTH!
Dear guests, for years we used to run generators to supply our electricity, since the utility company is not reliable (not to mention the highest KWH price in the world). Unfortunately, we have to face the fact that our planet is experiencing a serious change and we must do something about it if we want to make the world a better place to live.
Are you interested in living "green"? Perhaps you are an environmentally-minded individual who is looking for a way to determine what kind of an impact your existence is having on the earth? Calculating your carbon footprint, or the carbon emissions you are responsible for, is one way to determine how best to approach minimizing your impact on global warming. Calculating carbon emissions is a fairly simple process, since you can use figures available from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to determine the emissions from using electricity and natural gas and driving a car.
We, at Villas Jazmin, met with specialists and figured out our carbon footprint. We were astonished to find out the result. We were producing 237 TONS of carbon, burning fuel to produce our electricity. Which is totally unacceptable because there’s a planet to save from global warming after all!
Since a few years we have been driving our operation toward environmental protection and trying to dramatically diminish our footprint on the planet. Power outage is a serious issue in this country with up to 12 hours of power outage on a daily basis ( in 2 power outages of 3 to 6 hours each). We used to run generators 24 hours a day, contaminating our environment seriously with great concerns. We have replaced our diesel generators with battery inverters and greatly diminished our contamination. However, the inverters have their limits and cannot service all electrical appliances. You will notice that air conditioning, microwave, toaster oven, hair dryer and iron will not function during the power outage. All lights, ceiling fans, TV, DVD, radio, refrigerator and water will continue to run as normal. Hot Water gas tank heats on demand (you should feel the warm water within a minute. The system will shut down the hot water after 2 minutes of usage. Turning off the water while you soap and then turning on the hot water again will get the system back in function.
Take note that In order to have your air conditioning working, you MUST lock your entrance door.
Re-using your towels for an extra day will save 458 gallons of water on a daily basis, not counting the saving of wasted chemical products in our environment.
Here are some facts about the hospitality industry in the world.
The hospitality industry spends $5 billion dollars every year on energy and consumes almost four billion kWhs of electricity, five million therms of natural gas and seven billion gallons of water.
It’s hard to imagine the number of towels and sheets which have been used only once and that have to be washed every day in all the hotels in the world, whereas when guests are at home, few wash their towels after one use or change their sheets every day. A simple recycled linen card inviting guests to make a greener choice by reusing towels and sheets can save gallons of water, detergents and cleansers.
