They use energy saving light bulbs in all the facilities even producing their own energy.
All the pools are natural, without chemical treatment and are designed so that the water of each one follows its natural course to the Nizao River.
The wastewater is treated by natural means with septic and filter wells.

The biodegradable solid waste will be used for animal feed and the non-degradable waste is transported to Santo Domingo for recycling.
They use their own aqueduct system, the water is taken from the very source of the river free of pollution.
They use toilets that discharge with little water (less than the standard 2 gallons per flush) and use low-flow showers (less than 3 gallons per minute), even with the aqueduct itself.
