Hato Verde employs numerous techniques to help sustainability and conservation of the area, such as employing local staff and educating them to switch off lights when they’re not in use. Hato Verde also works as a dairy ranch with 86 acres of land, using only Ecuadorian labourers. The fruits of their labour are sold within the area to contribute to the community. Much of the food you will consume here is sourced locally, milk produced from the farm can be found in some of the cheese, butter and cream etc and vegetables are picked from their very own garden. Conservational methods are used when it comes to waste and composting and they plant about 1,000 trees a year and try to reduce waste by re-using items as much as possible.
