COMMUNITY INTERACTIONFlorblanca Sustainability
We believe that we not only share a geographical location with our community, but also a shared responsibility to do our part to better the area socially where we are so fortunate to live and work. Here are some of the ways that Florblanca interacts with our local community:
Florblanca provides uniforms to the local soccer team of Bello Horizonte Community.For many years on Christmas, the Florblanca staff donates money to buy presents for the most humble families of the community, making this a traditional event at Florblanca.
Last December, we donated to a Christmas fund for the kids of Santa Teresa.
We have a bulletin board that has become the communication channel where the local community can invite staff and guests to social and recreational activities. It is at the entrance of the restaurant.
In association with the local Hermosa Valley School, we have organized different events for the community:
*Community Security Fair
*First aid course with the Red Cross
*Different activities for the "Bandera Azul" ecological Project at Playa Hermosa creating awareness about a variety of environmental issues.
Our staff is well trained for all emergency plans.
We offer an open space for local instructors to bring their cultural lessons. Previous classes included Salsa, Flamenco, Hip Hop and Zumba.
Certified organic coffee and teas are offered in the restaurant and gift shop. We also always strive to sell certified organic produce, free-range chicken, local pork, and sustainable fish in our Nectar Restaurant when available.
With the proper assessment, we offer our help when we find injured animals.
We signed the Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism. http://www.protegiendoles.org/codigo.htm
