Karin and Joland of Villa Carina said they wanted to be an example for other smaller resorts. “It is really possible to reduce water waste, energy usage and the use and non-degradable waste like plastics.

Water reduction is achieved by a water storage of 15m3 and the old septic tank. In the tank water is collected from rain, waste water from the pool, waste water from3 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, and the water from rinse bins.

Waste is separated into cans, plastic, glass, paper and other waste. The resort also cleans with so called eco-friendly cleaning products.


“We have a small solar system with batteries that will provide power the lights of all porches and it is also used for lighting outside” say Karin and Joland.
