Some preventive measures
Referring to the “leftovers” of our meals, they are reused in the feeding of chickens and pigs.
Used batteries, due to their high potential for pollution of the water table, are collected in a proper container and stored in metal cans and taken to collection points in Cuiabá.
Aluminum cans, plastic and glass
Are stored and accumulated separately, taken to Pocone and donated to the local community for subsequent sale to the recycling company.
They are reused at the lodge for the camp fire.
Other non recyclable materials
They are bagged and conducted to Poconé to the municipal waste drop point.
Our water comes from a 52-meter depth semi-artesian well. Due to the high presence of iron in suspension, the lodge counts with its own WTS (Water Treatment Station), thus providing clean and disinfected water to the use in the bathrooms. In the kitchen the water gets additionally purified to the drinking state and this water is used for drinking, cooking, washing and disinfecting fruits and vegetables and to produce ice. We provide free drinking water to our guests.
