Going Green at Roatan Backpackers' Hostel
We believe in doing our part to lessen our environmental impact and help our planet. A few of our green initiatives:
-solar energy system for part of our electric consumption
-solar pathway lights
-garden irrigation system with recycled treated grey water
-energy efficient LED light-bulbs, solar outdoor lighting
-rain water collecting cistern
-recycling program for cans and plastic bottles
-purified water sold in 5 gallon, reusable jugs
-composting kitchen scraps
How can you help? Turn off the lights/fans when you head out from the hostel, be conservative with water usage, and separate your recyclables from the rest of the garbage using the containers provided.
