2022 was the year for our ‘Going Green Debris Campaign’ at Prestige Properties Ibiza: Campaña Escombro

Our love for Ibiza knows no bounds. But, our love must exceed mere pleasure and enjoyment. Our commitment to the environment and love for the island has led to the rise of our GOING GREEN campaign, which we are very passionate about and strive to maintain.

Our role as a responsible company involves reducing our carbon footprint, participating in regular beach clean-ups, educating homeowners about energy efficiency, and supporting IbizaPreservation. In addition, it is a great honour and pleasure to announce that in 2022 we launched our brand-new initiative on the island – the first of its kind!

Our campaign, ‘Campaña Escombro’, has been developed in collaboration with Novaforma construction company to clean up illegal construction dumping on the island.

Read on to find out how to get involved, be part of the solution, and make a difference in keeping mother nature as she deserves.

Before | After

What is the ‘Campaña Escombro’ campaign?

Campaña Escombro aims to contribute to the solution of the problems caused by, the renovation of old properties, the influx of ongoing construction projects, and the explosion in tourism. We believe it was a logical step in the right direction for us to keep the illegal dumping of construction waste at bay and do our bit to try and preserve the island’s pristine natural beauty 

Many of us have walked through the picturesque countryside only to be confronted with a pile of construction debris and rubbish waste materials. Together with Novaforma Constructions and Services Ibiza, we have introduced a process to clean-up some of these illegal dumping sites.

Anyone who sees one of these sites can report it to Prestige Properties Ibiza by contacting us with a photo and location pin. We will then work to remove the rubbish and separate it for proper disposal, with all costs covered and donated internally between the two companies. 

To preserve Ibiza’s natural beauty, we encourage everyone, from our clients, collaborators, local businesses and island residents, to actively participate and join forces with us in "Going Green & Giving Back". 

The scope of the problem: illegal dumping of construction materials in Ibiza

Unfortunately, the island has yet to have official statistics surrounding the illegal dumping of reconstruction waste materials.  In addition, no action has been taken to prevent or clean up construction debris dumped in nature. 

As well as being an eyesore, illegal dumping has severe impacts on wildlife and habitat. Chemicals and non-biodegradable materials contaminate groundwater and soil in the waste. It is also possible for domesticated animals and wildlife to die after consuming poisonous materials.

We need you to help us collect illegal dumping of construction waste in Ibiza.

Although it is still necessary to overcome bureaucratic obstacles (since we must move onto private land with permission), Prestige Properties Ibiza, alongside Novaforma, will collect construction waste from areas we are informed about by you, our fellow islanders.

Our first rubble heap was cleared near Cala Llenya in September. Along with Novaforma employees, we disposed of 9.5 tonnes of rubble. There is now a return to the natural state of the landscape, which is the most beautiful and rewarding experience.

People and families in Ibiza can benefit from social responsibility. Whether we donate to charitable causes, support environmental changes, or consider programs that help people from developing countries, our social responsibility as a community can make a difference in the lives, health, and environment of others. 

Our goal is to change the future outcome for our local communities and the planet in the years to come by taking one small step at a time.

We believe in Giving Back!

We believe in Going Green!

We welcome you to join us in this pursuit!

    Welcome Gift from De Angel Natural Soap made in Ibiza

    At Prestige Properties we realise how fortunate we are to live on a beautiful island. To preserve the beauty of Ibiza and to ensure that many generations after us can live just as happily and healthily, we try to contribute in many ways to a greener local environment. To this end, we have set up our Prestige Goes Green campaign. For example, as part of this campaign, we donate part of our commissions from every sale and rental deal to IbizaPreservation, to support local environmental initiatives.

    In line with our green campaign and to ensure that our clients have the best Ibiza experience we now include the De Angel amenities line of natural hair and body care in our rental welcome gift pack. Our wish is to make you to feel at home and enjoy the very best of what the island has to offer.

    De Angel is a family-run business that is committed to making sustainable and natural body cleansing products in solid format. In the creation of their products, De Angel tries to use as many natural, locally sourced ingredients as possible. The results are natural soaps that provide a refreshing experience and the natural care that your body deserves.

    The founders were inspired by the island’s beautiful nature and their products aim to bring its essence into your home. The products are cut and packaged carefully by hand. Their paper packaging makes them stand out from other products as the impact on the environment is almost zero. In addition, the solid products lasts much longer than any liquid alternative.

    De Angel Natural Soap made in Ibiza

    Are you familiar with the De Angel history?

    Luz and Ramon, the owners of De Angel, decided to move to Ibiza in 2011 together with their children, as they were tired of hectic city-life in Valencia. After a beautiful summer on the island and a family conversation about natural soaps, they decided to start their own company to develop soaps with natural ingredients inspired by the island. This was a new challenge for them because they had no experience in this, but they knew that together they would make a good team because Luz was always busy with handicrafts and Ramon had a background in graphic design.

    During those winter months they discovered more of the beauty that Ibiza offers, and all the natural ingredients they could use for their recipes. With this inspiration they started experimenting with countless ingredients such as plants, vegetable oils etc. The results were beautiful products which they became more enthusiastic about every day, and which gave them the motivation to continue.

    De Angel Natural Soap made in Ibiza

    As Spring approached, they had created some wonderful products, with beautiful and handmade packaging. However, they did not have any customers since their products were not yet known among the islanders and tourists. To make sure their name grew, and their products were recognised, they started selling their products in the famous markets of Ibiza: Las Dalias, Sant Joan and Hippie Market Punta Arabí. Soon they received enthusiastic client responses about the quality of their products and to this day they continue to distribute them to the markets from their store in Port des Torrent, in the south of Ibiza.

        Energy Efficient Ibiza Homes – A Guide for Home Owners in Ibiza Part. 2

        Improving the energy efficiency of our homes is essential for conserving resources, saving money, and helping the environment. Each of us has a crucial part to play as homeowners, to improve our homes’ energy performance and ultimately reduce our carbon footprint and waste. If we make simple changes, we can achieve better property energy efficiency and contribute greatly to our planet’s future well-being (and our household utility bills).

        Our company, Prestige Properties is fully committed to promoting energy efficiency here in Ibiza as a firm supporter of green living. Previously, we published an "Energy Efficient Homes: A Guide for Homeowners in Ibiza" article, aimed at encouraging property owners and buyers to create energy-efficient homes, which we have now extended into part 2 – "Energy Efficient Homes: A Guide for Home Owners Part. 2"

        So, let’s get started with our latest guide for those who want to get involved in green and sustainable living right from the comfort of their own homes. 

        Energy Efficient Homes - A Guide for Home Owners in Ibiza Part 2

        How to Save Energy at Home – Our Top Daily Tip for Your Ibiza Property

        1. Change to LED Light Bulbs

        In comparison to incandescent, halogen, and compact fluorescent light bulbs, LED bulbs offer significant energy savings. In fact, LED light bulbs use up to 80 percent less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs. So, by making the transition to LEDs, you will significantly reduce your carbon footprint and CO2 emissions.

        1. Wash Your Clothes in Cold Water

        Although washing clothes in hot water is an effective way to get dirty items extra-clean, it is not cheap and of course, has harmful effects on the environment. 

        Where possible, wash your clothes in cold water (unless they are heavily soiled garments). Generating hot water for washing increases energy consumption by up to 90%, therefore, by switching to cold water each household has the potential to save a significant amount of energy on a regular basis. What’s more, cool water also slows the fading of colors and shrinking of fabrics, helping your clothes last longer! 

        1. Air Seal Your Ibiza Home

        Something we covered in our last article – A Guide for Home Owners in Ibiza, but equally important advice to revisit.  Sealing cracks, gaps, and leaks, and adding insulation can save up to 10% on home heating and cooling costs.  Property factors such as roofing, solid walls, ventilation, thermal bridges, water tightness, damp-proofing, and sealing should always be monitored, reviewed, and renewed where possible. If your home has single-paned windows, think about replacing them with more energy-efficient ones.

        1. Clean or Replace All Filters 

        Dirty or clogged filters make systems like air conditioners and dryers work harder and longer than necessary.  It is possible to reduce energy consumption by up to 15% with regular cleaning and maintenance that will ensure steady performance and appropriate use of energy. 

        1. Care for Your Refrigerator and Freezer 

        As a general rule, refrigerators and freezers operate most efficiently when they are full, so keep all those shelves in use. However, you should not overfill them, since overfilling will restrict airflow and force the device to work harder.  Remember to avoid excessive cooling and energy waste by following the manufacturer’s temperature regulation recommendations and be sure to clean your appliances before ice builds up to ensure they are all running efficiently.

        1. Use Natural Resources for Light, Shade, Heating, and Cooling

        Utilise your surrounding natural resources to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home and eliminate the need for energy-consuming appliances. During the cooler months, open up the shades and let the sunshine enter to warm your home, or use the shades or tinted window panes to do just the opposite.  And, where it is possible to use the natural light, turn off the lights.  Typically, household lighting accounts for 12 percent of a household’s total energy usage.

        1. Be Mindful of Electronics & Appliances in your Ibiza Villa

        Make sure you do not leave your electronics on all day long. It is always recommended to turn off your computer, TV monitor, radio and electrical appliances when they are not in use, and only put them on when you really need them. Also, try to avoid plugging in your mobile phone to charge overnight, it only takes a few hours to charge. 

        Bake without peeking! Your oven has to use more energy when the temperature drops every time you peek. If you have time, turn off the oven before the cooking time is up, the heat already generated will be enough to finish the cooking process without using extra energy. 

        When possible, use high-energy appliances such as dishwashers, washers, and dryers at night. It is common for utility providers to offer lower energy costs during certain times of the day, and certainly overnight. Making plans to do your laundry overnight will not only help you save money on your energy bills, but you will also be doing the planet a big favor. Finally, air-dry when possible, hang laundry outside or on a drying rack and avoid using the dryer altogether. Household sustainability and energy efficiency can be improved with small yet effective measures.

        1. Be Intentional with Your Ibiza Property Thermostat 

        If you set your thermostat just a few degrees higher or lower, depending on the season, you will be able to save about 6% to 8% on your energy bill per degree. Your home will not be noticeably cooled or heated any faster by setting your thermostat at a lower or higher temperature than is necessary. It is highly recommended to install a programmable thermostat for your home that will automatically adjust the temperature according to the schedule you set up.  

        1. Recycle, Reuse and Reduce in Ibiza 

        For the year 2019, Ibiza generated an average of 662kg of waste per person. The statistics exceeded the national average by 36.4%. Naturally, Ibiza’s landfill is unable to keep up with this large volume of waste which is why we must be intentional and proactive with our activity of daily living and promote waste reduction.  

        European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) - Prestige Properties beach clean up 2021

        According to IbizaPreservation, offers the following list of points to keep in mind act upon:

        • Before buying, think twice – buy only what you really need.
        • Avoid excessively packaged items
        • Refuse plastic bags – bring your own bag or basket to the grocery store.
        • Refuse throwaway plastics – choose reusable products.
        • Refuse plastic straws.
        • Take advantage of organic waste to compost.
        • Use the recycling points on the island – yellow, green, and blue bins.
        • Donate the things you no longer use, or sell them at a flea market or auction & buy second-hand items where possible.

        Ibiza also has a good network of selective waste collection points with three main containers:

        • Yellow is for "packaging" where you can deposit different types of containers: plastic, aluminum, metal, and Tetra Brik type containers (milk, soup, juice, sugar boxes).
        • The green container is for glass.
        • Blue is intended for "cardboard packaging", where you can deposit cardboard boxes and paper. 

        Every contribution is valuable to the whole and all of our actions will make a difference. In the end, the most important thing to remember is that living or staying in an energy-efficient home always creates a cleaner, greener island for both now and in the future.

          Prestige Properties Ibiza Beach Clean-Up Initiative 2021

          During a collaborative effort, over 200 kilos of garbage were collected in just one morning by a group of local residents from Ibiza.

          As part of a project led by us at Prestige Properties Ibiza, nearly 50 individuals, between our office and a variety of volunteer associations, worked together to clean up the areas of Cas Mut and Talamanca Beach, Ibiza.

          The initiative took place on Saturday 20th of November in partnership with four of the island’s local NGOs and volunteer groups, Plastic Free Ibiza and Formentera, Ibiza Limpia (Casita Verde), Voluntaris d’Eivissa, and IbizaPreservation. Together we proudly managed to collect more than 200 kilos of rubbish that would otherwise be left polluting our environment, shorelines, and land.

          During the project 23 people, Prestige Properties employees and volunteers, set out to collect roaming waste products and trash from the urban zone of Cas Mut, just outside Ibiza Town. The remainder of the group of volunteers and Prestige staff (30 people) gathered together on the beach of Talamanca with their friends, partners, and children who also took part in the morning’s activities.

          As a result of the ‘Beach Clean Up’ initiative 160 kilos of glass, 120 kilos of plastics and cans, 15 kilos of paper, and approximately 50 kilos of non-recyclable waste were collected in total between the two locations. Cas Mut alone collected 170 kilos of rubbish (90 kg of which were plastic items or cans).

          European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR)

          We specifically chose this date as it marked the start of the European Week for Waste Reduction 2021, whereby a wide variety of initiatives and campaigns across the island and Europe set out to raise awareness regarding reducing waste and living a more sustainable life. 

          A Special Thanks…

          We would like to say a special thanks to our collaborators for all their help and assistance with the logistics of the day. We also would like to thank every volunteer who dedicated their personal time and came along to help us clean up these two beautiful areas of the island.  Keeping our beloved island clean and nurtured!

            Reducing CO2 Emissions – Calculating our Carbon Footprint

            Over the past century, it has been estimated that global CO2 emissions have risen from 2 billion tons (recorded 1900) to a staggering 36.5 billion tons (by 2018).

            While it’s easy to see a statistic and stay distant from the issue, individuals, businesses, and organizations must collectively acknowledge the significant correlation between our increased Co2 emissions and the devastating effects on planetary climate change.

            The fight against climate change requires the active reduction of our energy consumption. Energy efficiency and reducing our carbon emissions is the transition needed to work towards a clean energy future.

            Reducing Co2 Emissions in the Workplace

            For every company, a chain of energy exists. Businesses and offices produce Co2 emissions and consume energy through the use of natural gas, electricity, heating oil, propane, servers, fleet, employee, and commuter travel.

            Businesses can reduce their carbon footprint through several actions that include the usage of renewable energy sources, simply regulating the office thermostat, ensuring all plug sockets are switched off at the end of the day, choosing a laptop instead of a desktop computer, sharing vehicles, recycling, etc.

            Calculating our Carbon Footprint

            Whilst most businesses may not have the time, knowledge, and resources to spend organizing, planning, and sustaining eco-friendly actions to make a difference to their carbon footprint, there are companies specialised in calculating and providing energy-efficient solutions to help create a more sustainable workplace.

            In the latter part of 2020, we calculated our Carbon Footprint: Prestige Properties Ibiza emits approximately 18 tonnes of CO2 per year.

            Since actively calculating our carbon footprint, we have now received an official manual for reducing our emissions in the office by changing electrical equipment to newer more efficient versions, changing to more hybrid or fully electric cars, switching off all equipment at the end of the day, and keeping air-con’s systems within reasonable temperature limits.


            Offsetting means funding global projects to reduce carbon emissions elsewhere, to "off-set" the amount of emissions you create. Frequently carbon offsetting reduces emissions much faster than an individual or single company can.

            Carbon offsetting projects help to combat global climate change as well as caring for local communities. In many instances they also are known to provide needed employment, health improvement, biodiversity, reforestation and broad social benefits to impoverished communities.

            For the future, we are now looking at projects to off-set our footprint, so that we can be a 100% carbon neutral company. So, stay tuned for more information.

            While real solutions require action on a global scale, there are choices you and your business can make in your day-to-day work life that will lessen the impact on the environment. The more companies that decide to be carbon neutral, the greater the impact will be for a cleaner future.

            Having a specialised Partner Program with an innovative way to help our business calculate, reduce and offset our carbon footprint has set us on a clear path to help the environment, fight climate change, and help work towards the transition to a clean energy future.

            For more information on how you too can be part of the solution, why not calculate your very own carbon footprint right now: Carbon Footprint Calculator For Individuals And Households
