During 2022, Creta Maris Resort measured weekly food waste from:
The measurement was achieved through the placement of bins at the above 4 points, the transfer of the waste collected to the scale area and their daily counting.
Supporting the zero-waste-to-landfill production system, a significant initiative was implemented at Creta Maris Resort. Organic waste from its kitchens is transferred to Crete’s Bioenergy facilities to be converted into biogas for power generation. In 2022, Creta Maris Resort handled a total of ~ 194,49 tons.
IMPLEMENTATION OF COMPOSTING SYSTEM
Organic kitchen waste (other than oils) is transferred to our resort’s gardens where, together with garden waste, is composted. Natural composting is an inexpensive and effective way of reducing organic kitchen waste (food leftovers, paper towels, etc.) and garden waste (clippings, grass, etc.) by 70-80%. The compost produced from the decomposition of organic materials is of very good quality and can be used for any type of cultivation. In this context, Creta Maris Resort collaborates with Dandalis, the local coffee manufacturing company, from which it receives coffee waste to enrich the natural composting process and create quality fertilizer for the resort’s gardens.
