REGIONALLY & ORGANICALLY SOURCED FOOD PRODUCTS
We try to be as self-sufficient as possible. Our property of 12 hectares functions as a breeding ground for a large share of the food that we use in our kitchen. We have our own cassava, tumeric, banana, coconut, papaya, turmeric, sorghum plants and trees as well as our own pig and chicken farm that provide us with meat and dairy. This farm is run by Bali Highlands Organik, which produces free-range, antiobiotic-free pork and chicken. They work with local farmers, providing the feed, pigs, and vets. The farmers provide the land and the time to care for the pigs. We run this project to support the local community, because pig farming provides a great alternative source of income for farmers that does not rely on weather conditions like plant harvest does. Nevertheless, at our ecocamp, we eat vegetarian most of the time, taking the impact of livestock on the environment into account.
ACTIVE WASTE REDUCTION STRATEGIES
At our ecolodge, we imply active waste reduction strategies by recycling all our natural waste and using it as a fertilizer for our plants. This ties into our 0 Waste Project: reusing and benefiting from all organic waste created as byproducts, such as banana peels, lime skins, cashew peel, and shell charcoal, which we use for compost, feed to the animals, or use as mulch. Additionally, we avoid using plastic material, but use reusable products instead. We also encourage our guests to do the same.
SUSTAINABLE BUILDING PRACTICES
All our tipis, huts, and shower facilities are made of natural materials. Old wood, metal and glass materials are recycled into something useful and beautiful!
USE OF ECOLOGICAL CLEANING PRODUCTS
We use ecological cleaning products and provide our guests with natural soap and shampoo!
