Our cabins collect and filter rain water to reduce our consumption from the well. All of the grey water of our lodge will go through a treatment plant that will make this water reusable for irrigation and grey waters.
We use solar and wind energy wherever possible, with the aim to completely offset our consumption one day.
We hire locally and buy locally – Aiming to provide farm to table ingredients, harvest local talent and purchase consumables that benefit the locale: from the soap we use to the wool blankets you will cozy up to.
One hard decision to stand behind in our conservation efforts, was to not use wood to heat the cabins, though the look and cozy feeling of the traditional Patagonian wood stoves would provide for a local experience, they are also the #1 pollution agent in the region.
So we are using more modern ways to keep you comfortable while you visit.
