A behind-the-scenes look at Terranam Wellness & self-care tips for taking better care of yourself.
BY MARIA GARRIDO - 2 MINUTE READ
By caring for the Earth, we care for ourselves. We believe in providing relaxing retreats for our cherished clients while minimizing our carbon footprint for the good of the planet. One of the ways we do this is by sourcing locally and sustainably.
Our belief in sustainability and meaningful contribution permeates every decision we make, even in our Yoga Shala, where all of the materials have been carefully chosen to ensure we respect the environment.
Our yoga mats are made by a Spanish startup and composed of algae recovered from ocean cleanups. Every one of them returns 64 liters of clean water and 40 metric cubes of clean air to the environment. Plus they’re vegan, recyclable, and chemical free!
Cork grows naturally in this part of Spain. In fact, we even have a couple of cork trees on our property. The blocks you use in our yoga classes are made from cork oak trees, the only tree that regenerates its bark after harvesting, ensuring that no tree is harmed in the process.
PERSONAL & PLANET CARE
Do you ever notice how many plastic bottles, carton wrappers, plastic casings, etc go into the bin in your typical hotel room? We do not want to add to this waste!
That’s why we spent months hunting out the best, most sustainable bathroom amenities. We wanted to work with Spanish brands, supporting local startups, while minimizing carbon footprint from manufacturing through delivery to consumption.
After 6 months of exploration and testing plenty of solid shampoos and soap bars 😉, we finally found a partner that reflects our values of caring for the planet. When you enjoy a retreat with us, you can rest easy that 0 water, 0 carbon & 0 plastic packaging was used in the making of our soaps and shampoos. And anything you don’t use is 100% biodegradable, so it goes right into our compost bin after your stay.
Plus, with ingredients like rosehip, olive oil, rosemary, orange peel, vanilla, and shea butter we’ll take care of your skin and you’ll smell amazing, too!
Learning to live sustainably can seem daunting. So start small with simple changes towards conscious consumption: change to LED light bulbs, reuse glass jars to store leftovers or try a solid bar shampoo. Jot down your positive changes, congratulate yourself for how far you’ve come, and have faith in how far you can go. ❤️
