Eco Room - Enviromental Awareness


Baleal Surf Camp tries to make a contribution to this important cause by promoting beach clean-up activities, involving our staff, students and campers in the cleaning work, mainly whenever we take our weekly surfing trips to deserted beaches. See the video below with an example from October 2009.

The initiative gathered around 30 people all emboyed with the spirit to help and the right attitude towards fighting one of the shamefull consequences of our human activities, the production of waste and the careless disposal of it everywhere.

An hour or two is what everyone gave from their Saturday afternoon, and amazingly we did not have to spread more tham 400m around our meeting point to fillup the plastic bags we had. Thanks everyone.

CARBON OFFSETTING
We know that every time we fly, we are creating more Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and contributing to global warming. We realise that as a travel business, we cannot cancel out traveling, so in addition to our other measures, we offset 110% of the carbon emissions of our staff flights. We encourage our clients to do the same. It is affordable and easy to do!
