It is their mission to protect the wondrous planet earth and one of the means by which they do this is through championing sustainability, which they do in the following ways: the water in the villa is heated exclusively by solar energy, and electricity on the other hand is 100% provided by renewable energy sources and is guaranteed nuclear free. All cleaning products at i pini are biodegradable, vegan, and organic, while the laundry is air dried. They gather precious water for their organic garden from rainfall and they have created hotels for insects and shelter for bees, bats and butterflies, since all of them are very important to the ecosystem. They practice composting to create a nutrient-rich soil conditioner for their gardens and farming. Not to mention that they are also in the process of creating a permaculture food forest which will allow your five senses to be engaged as you interact with the beauties of nature.
