Ollero Eco Lodge uses an electricity supplier that produces the electricity from entirely renewable energy sources, such as wind and bioenergy, and has a Guarantee of Origin. The igloo is completely energy-efficient with solar and biofuel used for led lights, Wi-Fi and mobile communication electricity. The low consuming renewable biodiesel is keeping the igloo warm and cozy. It has top quality low-energy windows and superior insulation.
We reduce our energy consumption by using energy-saving lights.
More than 80% of waste is recycled. Waste collectors in the main house and the igloo allow sorting waste to proper circulation. In the summer 2020, we are building our own compost for organic waste.
There are two composting toilets, one in the igloo and another in the yard.
We source towels and bedlinen from a local laundry company that washes textiles eco-efficiently.
Ecological & Fair-trade Products
In Ollero Eco Lodge, we choose eco-friendly products. All detergents used for cleaning and the guests´ shampoos & shower gels are highly eco-friendly. In the smoke sauna, towels, sit linen & slippers are made in Finland using natural raw materials. In Ollero Eco Lodge you can use ecological cups, bowels and cutlery.
For the history of Ollero, we chose to reuse most of the furnishing and interior materials, which have been there since the 70´s. Curtains are made of linen that´s origin is in our great-grandparents organic farm. Sheep hides are from a local organic sheep farm and they are 100 % allergic free.
Ollero Eco Lodge chose the igloo for its low impact on nature; it moves to new destinations without leaving traces.
All of the other buildings in Ollero Eco Lodge are of log built. Timber is a renewable and organic building material and can often be reused in new buildings or at the end of its era burned for energy. Did you know that by increasing the use of wood is an effective way to hold back the growth of greenhouse emissions?
