Last month was World Environment Month. Since 1974, World Environment Day has been celebrated on June 5th with governments, businesses, and citizens to tackle the most pressing environmental problems. World Environment Day offers a global platform to inspire positive change. It encourages people to reflect on how they consume, companies to develop greener models, farmers and manufacturers to produce more sustainably, governments to invest in repairing the environment, educators to inspire students to act, and young people to build a greener future.
Maintaining its commitment to make the world, our country, and our community greener and a more sustainable place, Casa de Campo has launched a series of initiatives focused on protecting our natural resources and giving back to the Earth some of what we take.
Casa de Campo Resort & Villas is the first hotel in the Dominican Republic to be part of the Only Water RD project by offering water in cardboard containers to its guests and clients. This initiative will benefit the environment by reducing the carbon footprint of this product by more than 50%, thanks to its ecological packaging. Read more here
For several consecutive years, Minitas Beach has received the international Blue Flag certification for complying with four fundamental areas: Bathing Water Quality, Environmental Information and Education, Environmental Management and Safety, and Services and Facilities. Read more here
100% BIODEGRADABLE DRINKS
We are aware of the damage that plastic does to the environment; that is why the restaurants and bars offer 100% biodegradable straws and disposable cups made with vegetable resin.
ELECTRIC GOLF CARTS
Electric golf carts are the best eco-friendly option, which is why the rooms and suites have an electric golf cart that you can use during your stay and charge directly in the parking lot of your room.
Being on vacation does not mean changing your commitment to the environment. At Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, there are two charging stations for electric vehicles, thus reaffirming our commitment to support electric mobility, preserve the environment, and generate sustainable tourism in the Dominican Republic. These stations are located in La Marina and the Cacique parking lot. Read more here
HELP SAVE CORAL REEFS
One of the most exciting aspects of traveling is trying new food. Casa de Campo’s culinary team has created an acclaimed culinary experience focused on fresh, local, and seasonal flavors with a global influence. If you love fresh seafood, don’t miss out on the innovative cuisine with Caribbean flair at Minitas Beach Club or the always fresh selection of Mediterranean delicacies at La Casita restaurant. For a more traditional Dominican meal, be sure to have lunch at the Lago restaurant.
Casa de Campo supports the FUNDEMAR organization in its local reef conservation and restoration project in La Romana. The “Plato Solidario” initiative encourages diners to try a delicious Dominican-style fried chillo at the Beach Club. For each dish ordered, the resort will donate US$ 3 to the foundation.
