Being in Jericoacoara is a privilege – that is why we believe to have the duty to preserve life and nature that surrounds us. For that purpose, Vila Kalango developed susteinable actions to afect positively the region and those who live here. Here are some of our iniciatives:
WE WORRY ABOUT EVERYTHING FROM THE CONSTRUCTION
Vila Kalango has a total area of 5.000m², where only 30% is constructed area – that is the reason why we were able to preserve what was in the propriety before our arrival, such as trees and resident animals. In Vila’s construction typical materials of the region as clay bricks, wooden floors and straw roofs were used. A rustic enviroment in complete harmony with Jericoacoara’s local beauty. The charming and authentic decoration is made with local materials, made by employes and local crafters. The sink, for instance, is made out of a pan – uniqueness that give a special touch, harmonic and eco-friendly.

SUSTAINABILITY IN DAILY
Sustainability is also present in the organic garden shared with the Pousada Rancho do Peixe, located on Preá Beach, 12 km from Jericoacoara. The organic garden partly supplies the kitchens of the two hotels, which belong to the same owner, with herbs, spices and some vegetables.

Organic waste of inns is collected and turned into compost and used in the garden. The garden, located in Rancho do Peixe has mandala format and in the center there is a water reservoir for the creation of fish and ducks.
Vila Kalango was also one of the first to practice the selective collection and recycling of waste in Jericoacoara. The entire inn trash is separated by employees and the inorganic material is brought to a proper establishment of recycling, where the screening is done.
After this process, the material is transferred to a shed and each type of material has its destination. In this shed, for example, the plastic waste is transformed into hoses that are then sold, including the very Pousada Vila Kalango and Pousada Rancho do Peixe, making full and sustainable cycle from start to finish.
Moreover, Vila Kalango participates in various conservation projects from Jericoacoara village like gardens growing, clean-ups, painting walls and supports and sponsors various community events with the intention of making the region even better. Such actions contribute to the whole community has a socio-environmental concern.
