We intend to make our "way of life" a brand image and expand it to other hotels Natura Club.
We have as indelible values respect for the environment, support for regional and national companies and social responsibility.
Knowing the impact of mass tourism on the city of Albufeira, we work to lighten this impact by providing awareness to environmental sustainability at a social and economic level.
We value and support local and national companies by purchasing their products and services and also by helping the local community with agreements/protocols with charities and other non-governmental organizations of our region.
Natura Algarve Club has put in place the system of eco-cups (reusable cups).
According to Frederico Ferreira (General Manager of Natura Algarve Club) "the aim of the eco-cup is to remove the disposable plastic from our F&B outlets and be an example to follow for the hospitality industry in Europe, we want to be pioneers in this cause in the fight against disposable plastic.
We have already banned straws and only give them if they are requested.
Throughout the hotel there are also distributed several recycling bins.
