Lasala Commitments

 

We want to be an ASSET for the planet

Just like we dedicate all our passion for providing a unique stay and experience, at the Lasala Plaza hotel we make every effort to make the hotel an asset for the planet; a pillar contributing to the good social, cultural and environmental health of our surroundings.

Since the beginning and during the definition of our hotel model, we chose to generate our own geothermal and photovoltaic energy and decided to only consume renewable energy. As the management policies of the different sections were defined, we made a commitment, for example, to transition towards Zero Paper through the use of QR codes, working on the circularity of our waste and incorporating the km0 concept in our supply policy.

In this section we tell you how we face the collective challenge of caring for the planet, including our commitment in our different lines of activity.

 

We take care of the things that make us happy

At Lasala Plaza consuming km0 products is a priority for us. Our gastronomic offering is the result of a continuous effort to support local producers and their artisan manufacturing methods.

· We participate in the Nespresso coffee capsule collection program.

· Agua KM0: our guests have micro-filtered local water bottled in glass to avoid transporting plastic bottles. 

· We collaborate in the ItsaSOS project through the fitting of a plaque on our outdoor sewerage system in order to raise awareness about urban waste that ends up in the sea.

· We use blankets made up of 50% reused materials for La Jarana Taberna. Each tablecloth is made up of 8 plastic bottles.

· Digitisation instead of stationery: we have a digitised check-in process, QR codes in common areas and rooms, and 100% digitised administration and billing.
