waste management

The separation of waste at source is one of the essential keys when seeking to reduce the impact on the environment that surrounds us. For this reason, we use the following classification for a better final disposal:














• Gray Caneca: Non-returnable beverage containers, clean aluminum, disposable cups, plastic bags and other empty plastic containers.
• Blue Caneca: Cardboard and Paper, which must not be dirty with other different materials that contaminate it.
• Caneca Verde: Ordinary waste, which is that which cannot be recycled.




Sources of Water Consumption

Sanitary equipments

To optimize water consumption, we have Purchased and installed water-saving sanitary appliances and carried out reviews and maintenance every 2 months of the sanitary appliances, avoiding leaks and loss of Water.

We have placed water saving notices at the points of consumption of the liquid and have carried out the installation of water saving devices.












What should we do?

1. Examine faucets, pipes, and outside pipes for leaks. Drop by drop the water runs out. 

2. Make use of rainwater collection systems in houses, which can be used for washing clothes, house cleaning and sanitary facilities. 

3. Water plants and gardens only twice a week, at night or early in the morning, preferably using drip irrigation systems. 

4. When washing dishes by hand, use one tub to wash them and another to rinse them. Never under the jet of the open faucet. 

5. Take short showers and turn off the faucet while soaping. 

6. Use a glass of water to brush your teeth. Do not leave the key open. 

7. Turn off the faucet while shaving, use a container or sink stopper to shave. 

8. Wash vehicles in places established for this purpose; if you wash at home; use only a bucket of water. 

9. Teach children not to waste water.

Natural lighting and ventilation

What should we do?

1. Do not leave the devices, which are operated on battery power, connected for a long time. Just plug them in for as long as it takes to charge the battery. 

2. If you live in a hot country, try to turn on the fans, instead of the air conditioning, these use less energy.

3. Keep all chargers unplugged. Although they are not charging anything and appear to be off, they are still consuming power.

4. Never leave your TV in 'Sleep' mode or your computer in 'Reboot' mode as they continue to consume a lot of power continuously.

5. Buy light bulbs that save energy. These will also save you money when your electricity bill arrives. 

6. Keep electrical appliances unplugged that you don't use very often, especially if you're going out.

7. When you are not going to wash a relevant amount of clothes, it is best to use short wash cycles and use cold sharp.

8. Turn off lights when not in use.

9. If you are going to heat food, instead of using the electric stove or oven, use the microwave. This heats food faster.

10. Try to wash as many clothes as you can in a single wash, this with the idea of not constantly using the washing machine that consumes a lot of energy.

11. While you are not using your computer, turn off the monitor or screen.

12. If you can plug most appliances into one outlet, that's better. You can connect a multi-socket to a single socket and you have to connect as many electrical appliances as possible.
