A sustainable love story
At Agrikies, we are passionate about sustainability and taking care of our environment.
We believe in the importance of recycling, reusing, and composting to minimize waste and promote a greener future. We would like to share with you some of the initiatives we have implemented to reduce our ecological footprint.
Recycling: We have established a comprehensive recycling program throughout our property. We encourage our guests to separate their waste into designated recycling bins for paper, plastic, glass, and metal. Our dedicated staff ensures that these materials are properly sorted and sent for recycling, reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
Reusing: We strive to minimize single-use items and promote reusable alternatives. In our rooms, you will find refillable toiletry dispensers instead of individual plastic bottles.
At Agrikies, we are dedicated to finding creative ways to reduce waste and promote sustainability. As part of our commitment to responsible practices, we have implemented initiatives to repurpose old sheets and towels, giving them a new life and minimizing their environmental impact.
Old sheets are transformed into laundry bags, providing a practical and eco-friendly solution for our guests. These repurposed bags are used to collect dirty laundry, eliminating the need for single-use plastic bags and reducing waste. By reusing old sheets in this way, we contribute to a more sustainable laundry process and help protect our planet.
Similarly, old towels are repurposed into makeup remover pads. These soft and gentle pads are perfect for removing makeup and cleansing the skin.
By repurposing old towels, we reduce the demand for disposable cotton pads, which often end up in landfills. Our reusable makeup remover pads are not only environmentally friendly but also provide a luxurious and effective skincare experience.
We take pride in our efforts to repurpose materials and give them a new purpose. By reusing old sheets and towels, we extend their lifespan and reduce the need for new resources, contributing to a more sustainable future.
We have transformed plastic bottles into unique and eye-catching lamps. These lamps not only add a touch of charm to our property but also serve as a reminder of the importance of repurposing and reducing waste. By repurposing plastic bottles into decorative lamps, we give these materials a new life and prevent them from ending up in landfills or polluting our environment. We invite you to explore our property and discover these beautiful lamps firsthand. We hope that they inspire you to think creatively about repurposing materials and making a positive impact on our planet.
Composting: We have implemented a composting system to turn organic waste into nutrient-rich compost. Our organic vegetable garden benefits from this compost, allowing us to grow fresh and flavorful produce for our guests to enjoy. By composting, we reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills and contribute to a more sustainable food system.
Organic Vegetable Garden: We take great pride in our organic vegetable garden, where we grow a variety of seasonal produce. Our garden is free from synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, ensuring that our vegetables are not only delicious but also healthy and environmentally friendly. We incorporate these fresh ingredients into our dishes, providing our guests with a farm-to-table dining experience.
Organic Olive Oil: Our olive trees are carefully tended to using organic farming practices. The olives are hand-picked and cold-pressed to produce our high-quality organic olive oil. This oil is used in our kitchen and is also available for purchase, allowing you to take a taste of Agrikies home with you.
At Agrikies, we are committed to utilizing every part of the olive tree and minimizing waste. As part of our sustainable practices, we use the cut olive tree branches from the harvest to fuel our wood-fired oven. This not only reduces waste but also adds a unique and authentic flavor to our dishes. By using olive tree branches as a fuel source, we avoid the need for additional wood or charcoal, reducing our carbon footprint and promoting a more sustainable cooking method. The olive wood imparts a distinct smoky flavor to our dishes, enhancing the overall dining experience and showcasing the natural flavors of our ingredients. We take great pride in our wood-fired oven, which allows us to create delicious and traditional dishes that are cooked to perfection. From pizzas with a crispy crust to succulent roasted meats and pies, our wood-fired oven adds a touch of authenticity and enhances the flavors of our culinary creations. By utilizing the cut olive tree branches from the harvest in our wood-fired oven, we ensure that every part of the olive tree is put to good use, aligning with our commitment to sustainability and responsible practices.
Promoting Cycling: We encourage our guests to explore the beautiful surroundings of Agrikies by bicycle. We provide bicycle rental services and have designated cycling routes for you to enjoy. By choosing to cycle, you not only experience the beauty of the area but also contribute to reducing carbon emissions and promoting a sustainable mode of transportation. We are committed to continuously improving our sustainability practices and finding innovative ways to protect our environment.
We invite you to join us in our efforts by participating in our recycling program, supporting our organic initiatives, and embracing a more eco-conscious lifestyle during your stay.
We look forward to welcoming you and providing you with a memorable and sustainable experience.
