Let's improve the world! Ecology
We intend to make our "way of being" a brand image and expand it to future Natura Club hotels.
We have indelible values such as respect for the environment, support for regional and national companies, and social responsibility.
Knowing the impact of mass tourism in the city of Albufeira, we work to reduce it, providing awareness for sustainability at environmental, social and economic levels in an interactive and dynamic way.
We value and support local and national companies in the purchase of products and contracting of services and we also help the local community with agreements/protocols with social solidarity institutions and other non-governmental organizations in our region.
We believe that we all have a role to play in protecting the environment and building a more sustainable world. We are committed to doing our part and we hope that our guests will help us achieve our goals.
In 2019, the Natura Algarve Club adopted the eco-cups (reusable cups) system to reduce the use of disposable plastic. According to Frederico Ferreira, CEO of Natura Algarve Club, "the goal of eco-cups is to remove disposable plastic from the catering areas and be an example to follow by the hotel industry in Europe. We are pioneers in this cause in the fight against disposable plastic."
Several recycling areas are also distributed throughout the hotel.
In this way, Natura Algarve Club is associated with a strategy of plastic reduction and environmental concern.
Here are some benefits of using eco-cups:
• Reduces the use of disposable plastic, which helps protect the environment.
• It is more economical, as eco-cups can be reused several times.
• It is more hygienic, as eco-cups can be washed and disinfected.
• It is more convenient, as guests can take their eco-cups wherever they go.
Natura Algarve Club is committed to sustainability and expects its guests to help reduce plastic use.
We offer three recycling areas in the hotel so that you can separate your waste for recycling:
Plastic and metal waste, such as plastic bags, shampoo/water/juice bottles, milk and yogurt containers, aluminum food and beverage cans, aerosols, etc.
Glass, such as wine/alcohol bottles, glass water bottles, olive oil containers, jams, perfumes, etc.
Paper and cardboard, such as boxes, wrapping paper, envelopes, newspaper, writing paper, egg cartons, etc.

When planning your next meal, try to eat seasonal and locally produced fruits and vegetables. This will reduce fuel consumption during transportation. Reduce your consumption of processed food, which is less healthy and comes with a lot of unnecessary packaging. The planet and your body will thank you.
