Endless horizons, clear skies and having the world to yourself are the true luxuries of modern times. Here at Hotel Molino we believe everyone can do their bit for the environment, and we encourage our guests to adopt a ‘Leave No Trace’ policy when visiting us.
By following these key principles everyone can make a difference & keep the Sacred Valley beautiful.
Use only durable goods
To eat and drink: use our porcelain mugs and plates, as well as metal or wooden utensils
To carry items: borrow our backpacks, baskets and textile bags
To heat: take advantage of our fireplaces and put on warm clothes
To light: we use designer lamps made from recycled bottles and solar lights
Reduce single-use products and excess pollution
Cook at home
Walk where possible
We use solar energy to heat water. Enjoy hot showers on sunny days, try cooler ones on rainy days. We are in the subtropics 24/7 anyway
Use water to clean tiled floors – no need for detergent
Make it hard for others to see or hear you – visual and audio pollution is as bad as physical waste
Dispose of waste properly
Recycle as much as possible – reuse bags, clothes, books, stones, glass and wood
Sort organic vs non organic
Take any plastic bags or receipts back home with you
Practicing a Leave No Trace ethics is simple: strive to LEAVE NO TRACE of your visit.
We would love to hear about your experience in doing so and we welcome any suggestions on how we can further help to build awareness, appreciation and respect for Peru’s natural and cultural heritage.
