La Mangrove lives in harmony with its environment and aims to minimize the negative impact on the ecosystem through:
Goa is known for its water scarcity as there are 7 dry months every year. Local people and farmers regularly suffer drought as five star hotels are often the government’s priority regarding water distribution. Therefore we do our best to save water in many ways. Every private bathroom contains eco-toilets and we ask our guests to be eco-conscious so that their towels or bed sheets are changed when needed. We will also provide organic soap and shampoo so we can reuse the wash water to water plants in the garden.
Unfortunately Goa hasn’t got a proper waste management and collection system so we do everything to ensure our waste is minimal. We sort our garbage between paper, plastic and organic waste, using the latter to make compost. We also offer filtered water to our guests so that they can refill their water bottle for free to avoid the accumulation of plastic.
India has got a real energy efficiency problem. So we use energy-efficient bulbs and LED lights to control our energy consumption. Solar power panels will soon be integrated into our system and our tipis deliberately do not contain heavy electricity-consuming devices such as a fridges, air conditioning units and televisions. Instead, we will offer you unforgettable experiences that will make you feel closer to nature.
GLOBAL WARMING MANAGEMENT
India is one of the worst carbon dioxide emitters so we try to minimize our contribution by providing bicycles to our guests. The ride to the beach is as short as it is beautiful!
We use natural materials as much as possible to enhance the natural feeling of the place. For instance, we use canvas for the tipis, cow-dung for the terrace, and bamboo mats for the bathrooms.
Everybody remembers the tragedy in Bhopal. One more reason to cook as much as possible with organic products from local farmers.
