Every time we turn on the electric switch, every time we cook, opening the fridge, we consume energy. Energy produced at a power station, factory polluting the environment. For every kilowatt-hour we consume, more than one kilogram of carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. By saving energy, we contribute to the protection of the environment, which makes its necessity essential.
So La Bellezza Eco Boutique Hotel is also actively and practically trying to help protect the environment and save energy.
Below you’ll find information about our effort in Santorini Island.
| Heat and air cooling system:
La Bellezza Eco Boutique Hotel facilities are heated by a combination of solar thermal panels on the terrace (water is heated by the sun) and pumps by using water circulation. Fan coils are installed to all our suites and apartments in order to ensure superior performance including the optimum control of operation frequency. Optimum power is applied in all cooling and heating ranges and maximum comfortable conditions are achieved while consuming minimum energy. All the pipe work throughout the facilities is insulated and there are also boilers to restore any shortfall.
Rain water is collected and used for the main swimming pool. Internal underground water tanks are used to collect water for future use in order to avoid waste of the public water network system.
Thermal performance efficiency:
External walls of the construction include insulation. Additional thermal insulation has been added on the roof. All the windows are soundproof with triple energy saver.
The paints have been produced by Greek companies granted with eco-label certification. They are environmental friendly by using natural ingredients.
All brand new handmade beds are unique to the LA BELLEZZA Eco Boutique Hotel. They are all made by using of entirely natural materials. All mattresses are suitable for all body types. The mattress cover can be removed and cleaned. A top-mattress is the perfect complement to a bed-mattress upon request. Our top mattresses are made of solid natural rubber foam including Aloe Vera.
Our hypo allergenic pillows are made in Greece from 100% organic natural rubber and cotton. The sheets and pillowcases are organic cotton. Our bedding is all hypo-allergenic and all cleaning materials are approved and environmental friendly.
La Bellezza Eco Boutique Hotel philosophy is to promote the local bio-products directly from our suppliers. Our main supplier additionally applies a Food Safety Management System (HACCP), where all products are kept according to their type and category. Trying for the best, the ISO 22000 (Risk Analysis – Critical Control Points) system, which is specialized in ensuring the hygiene and safety of food, is also being implemented. The ingredients are fresh, seasonal, and organic. We make efforts to buy all bio-products from small local producers from Santorini and the near islands.
The lighting in the suites and apartments is low energy by using led technology. The external lighting is controlled ensuring safety and it is only switched on when it’s needed. Low energy lighting has been used throughout the facilities.
Our guest houses guides are made from recycled paper. We use only environmental friendly cleaning products with certifications and all our waste is separated and the vast majority recycled.
Bicycles are available for La Bellezza Eco Boutique Hotel guests in order to avoid unjustified environmental pollution.
