To protect the life of the Rainforest, the wood that is used is acquired from the city of Coca. Due to the geography of where this wood is located, it is highly resistant and durable, making the use of this material rationed and sustainable.
In 2020, our goal is to create an organic fruit and vegetable garden, which can be run by a local community and use these natural and organic materials in our selected cuisine
Fossil Fuel Reduction
Our goal is to make our lodge a nearly fossil fuel free environment. We are working to reduce energy consumption in La Selva by changing old equipment, using LED energy and raising awareness among our staff and guests about the importance of saving energy. Also, we will eliminate and replace our large generators with smaller and newer models with more efficient battery life and usage, which will be charged when passengers are away from the lodge during activities.
In our attempts to leave a green footprint, we will soon begin installing solar panels to progressively eliminate the use of generators, eventually leading to a fossil fuel free environment.
We are reducing the impact of used water by using a filtration and cleaning system before it returns to the environment.
To save energy, we use a combination of fans and natural air that enters through open spaces to keep our guests cool.
