Our commitment to Green

AT Can Bayre we are committed to developing our business activity with the greatest respect for the setting and for the environment. We are particularly concerned about preserving the magnificent setting of the Empordà region and our aim is to generate the minimum environmental impact possible.

  • We have energy-saving systems for the natural resources: domestic water is heated by solar energy and the lighting is low consumption. There are still a few old-fashioned light bulbs to be changed but very soon they will all be low-consumption bulbs.
  • We use paper with a high recycled content and whenever possible, it is reused.
  • We purchase most of the breakfast products in local establishments: the butcher’s, the traditional bakery with its wood-fired oven and the shop from which we acquire many of the products (fresh fruit and vegetables, yoghurt, cheese, cold meats, etc) are in the village.
  • We recycle waste.
  • The La Chinata courtesy products in the bathrooms are refilled before replacing the bottles.
  • The windows throughout the house have double glazing, for better thermal insulation.
  • The outdoor lights work with a timer which in the summer months is set from 21:00 to 1:00.
