Sustainable Tourism in Bogota, in Colombia admin
For our accommodation is of the most importance to take care of the planet and be responsible for every type of waste we generate. Committed to helping the planet as much as we can, we created this page for us to express our thoughts about what we can do to help. We invite you to enrich this page with articles, comments, and thoughts. We will appreciate your views about how to travel ECO. We want to call your attention over good practices when traveling:
1. Always bring your water container to refill it. At our accommodation in Bogota we have a water station where you will find endless amount of filtered and cold water. In this way we safe the waste of plastic bottles. However at the Bogota Bed and Breakfast INN we do recycle all plastic, paper, and glass.
2. Bring with you folding bags for your purchases. At our accommodation we want you to prevent the use of plastic bags while you tour Colombia. We think a good option is using those bags that don’t take a lot of space and you can bring with you when going grocery shopping, wine shopping, buying souvenirs, and so on.
3. For Bogota BNB INN is of capital importance bringing back to our distributors all the Styrofoam we get as packing material when we buy vegetables and fruits. This kind of material is rarely recycled in Bogota, only few places does the process of transforming it into products and put it back in the market. Hotels and other types of accommodations on a daily basis get a good amount of Styrofoam containers. The city of Bogota has a good amount of accommodations, between hotels, hostels, hostals, and bnb/inns. If we were to collect all this material that goes to the trash every day, it wold turned to be a huge mountain. We believe it is of the most importance for the health of our planet Earth to do as much as we can to produce less trash, reuse more, and use less.
