|Barcelona Urbany, the Eco-friendly youth hostel for budget travellers!|
We believe the true backpacker way of life means not only travelling around the world, making friends and sharing nice experiences but respecting the planet we live in. Discovering other parts of this planet on foot, finding out other ways of life, being more conscious about the issues we share together living on this small planet - earth.
The Barcelona Urbany building project focus on environmentally friendly design and technology deployment. But what does it mean?
When talking about environment and waste, everybody has heard about the three "R's": Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. The engineers who participated in building the building of Urbany Hostel in Barcelona has looked at the possible impacts of the project and choose to introduce some of the most innovative practices and methods to not only inflict minimal harm but to help protect the environment:
· Using a noise level absorbing façade
· Using a rain water harvesting system
· Recycling and reusing 50% of the water
· Using energy efficiency installations and low consumption lamps
· Using a more environmentally friendly and less aggressive materials
