COMMUNITY SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS
GOING GREEN IN NOT ONLY A MATTER OF NATURAL ENVIRONMENT: IT IS ALSO TO PRESERVE LOCAL CULTURE AND HERITAGE
Ecotourism, as an alternative tourism, involves visiting natural areas in order to learn, to study, or to carry out activities environmentally friendly, that is, a tourism based on the nature experience, which enables the economic and social development of local communities.
For this reason we collaborated only with locals to improve our portfolio of additional services. We offer only local products such as local olive oil and decorate our Villas only with furnitures that were recycled or purchased in local shops.
Moreover, an important part of our incomes is destined every year for fund projects that aim to protect the safeguard of the environment as well to sustain the local tradition and spread them all over the world.
Our guests are not only travellers: they proudly participate to different projects to sustain the Paxos community
VOLUNTEERS OF PAXOS
The first mission of this organization is to raise awareness among Paxiots and visitors of the importance of reducing and eventually abandoning single-use plastic bags. To keep the beaches and all natural environment of Paxos free from plastic garbage and to convince the local authorities to declare disposable plastic bags illegal on the island.
This group of volunteers also proudly clean and open paths to reach some of the most beautiful and secret corner of the islands. In Nereidi Complex, we are glad offer for free to our guests their useful reusable bags.
