After years of travel and globe-trotting, in many countries and particularly in South America, we decided, rather than return to our old life style of "subway-job-sleep", to create a lifestyle based on environmental protection, ecology and the principles of permaculture.

Project description

2013: We built our hostel with the following ecological features:

  • Separation of the rubbish and composting of organic wastes
  • Grey water treatment. We use the purified water for watering the garden
  • Solar thermal panels for the hot water
  • LED lighting
  • Pellet heating system, using sawdust pellets, which pollutes much less than wood which is very popular in this region.

In February 2014: hostel opening

Short and medium-term projects

  • Creation of a kitchen garden
  • Solar illumination outside of the house
  • Ecological home-made soaps
  • Purified water for the laundry
  • Construction of dry toilets
  • Installation of a wind turbine for the electricity
