At Mondi Lodge we try to reduce the environmental impact we humans are having on our planet by recycling waste as much as possible. We try to work in a green way to perserve both our culture and support our local economy, by doing the following:

Environmental conservation:

  • We did not chop a single tree during construction, we simply moved them to another spot on our property
  • We work mostly with local flora and water them with groundwater and re-used septic tank water
  • Showering water is heated by solar panels
  • Most lights contain energy-saving LED bulbs
  • The palapas are isolated and built on the wind
  • We work with all-natural, organic cleaning products and supply likewise toiletries to our guests
  • We started growing fruit and vegetables and aim to be more self-sufficient in the future
  • We keep chickens for organic eggs (upon availability)
  • We serve organic, fair-trade coffee to our guests

Recycling and waste management:

  • We made as much furniture and decoration as possible with recycled pallet wood, driftwood and trash collected at Clean-ups
  • We recycle plastic bottles, soda cans, glass and send used batteries to the Netherlands were they get properly taken care of
  • We make use of bio-degradable garbage bags
  • We make use of recycled napkins
  • We work with an à la carte menu to avoid wasting food. Leftovers go to the animals we keep
  • Printing paper is re-used as writing paper and old paper and cardboard are brought to the recycle station

Social and communal commitment:

  • We inform our guests about sustainability and their part in being sustainable. Besides the information they get at check-in and what’s written in the information map, we aim to increase their consciousness by trying to talk about the subject with them. We also involve them in the process by asking them to recycle or bring home some batteries for us to properly dispose
  • We work with local people
  • We buy our cleaning products at local, family-run business Integra Natural, which was founded by ten year old Tatiana
  • We are a member of Greenforce Curaçao, who also take care of our recycled bottles and cans. To involve the community, we send letters to our neighbors and encourage them to make use of our recycle station
  • We work with local car rental Prins, instead of the big players at the airport
  • The commission we make on tours, is donated to a local charity
  • We organize clean-ups with our workers and other volunteers when we have spare time.
