Recycling and Waste Management Program
We are aware that pollution is one of the main threats to our environment and to our society; therefore, we have decided not only to implement large efforts in the waste management program at Florblanca, but also to be promoters of this program in our community.
We clean our beach in front of the hotel daily and contribute with economical support in the weekly cleanup program of Playa Hermosa.
Blue Flag Program
We have a very thorough recycling program in the hotel. At playa Santa Teresa and the surrounding beaches we work with the Blue Flag program and the Environmental Committee to keep all beaches clean and pristine.
We recycle our organic waste through traditional and worm composting. Occasionally pig breeders of our community will take advantage of our "left overs" to feed their animals.
The Municipality of Cobano collects recyclables from the community (glass, aluminum, plastic bottles, tetra packs and brass). Two times a week they send the recyclable items to different companies in the capital of San Jose.
Florblanca office paper is reused for projects and/or internal use. All of our paper is non-bleached recycled paper.
UV Lamps for Purified Water
- UV lamps were installed to 100% purify the water at Florblanca. With this system, all taps (including sinks and showers) have clean healthy water to drink. And, throughout the hotel we have additional water tanks for filling up your own water bottle. We strive to avoid plastic water bottles.
