Yacutinga Lodge is the first ecolodge of Argentina . Since the beginning of the Yacutinga Project it was designed to be exceptionally friendly to the surrounding environment . In fact, the Lodge is the undisputed economic pillar of this Environmental Project . Therefore, the importance of minimizing environmental impacts has been a constant in the Company , either from start of the construction process of the Lodge and other infrastructure , to start- up and implementation of the ecotouristic product we offer.
Environmentally Yacutinga should set an example to other Enterprises that are added to the ecotourism activity in the Province of Misiones. We have been trained. All staff at the Lodge is or has become Conservationist , all aware of the need to minimize consumption and make a proper management of nonrenewable resources.
The Reciclarte Program as implemented recycling system in Yacutinga, help us to keep our environment friendly conviction and adequate management of non-organic waste. Most of this waste is transformed in art with a native guarani touch.
Yacutinga’s “soul” is based in Environmental & Conservation . We protect and manage one of the last refuges of Interior Atlantic Rainforest in good state of preservation. The Lodge minimizes negative impacts through various systems . Many of these systems are unique, very peculiar and have been designed by ourselves in the search for locally manageable practical solutions , whereas other systems have been adapted and learned from elsewhere.
Our commitment to Sustainable Development is more than tangible in Yacutinga . All of us in this Company know that the balance in the use of natural resources is essential, as is the spread of this need not only for the benefit of our neighbors but also for the Lodge Guest and visitors.
On the other hand , we know that times change and needs too. Ethically and conceptually we must stand firm in our convictions , we must continue monitoring of environmental conditions to successfully manage ecotourism in the Natural Reserve Area . We must and hope to provide constantly the example of the respect to the environment and local native Communities while spreading actions and information at a local, Regional and National level.
