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.

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.

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.

      Sustainable Ibiza – The Best Practice & Guide for Tourists & Visitors

      We impact our environment every single day with the choices we make, from the food we choose to eat to the cars we choose to drive. Thankfully, many of us here in Ibiza and across the globe understand that we must work together and live intentionally in order to protect and preserve our island (and the planet).

      IbizaPreservation acts to ensure the protection and sustainability of Ibiza and Formentera through various NGO’s such as Plastic Free Ibiza, Ibiza Produce, Ibiza Posidonia, the Marine Forum, and Ibiza Sustainability Observatory. As proud contributors and supporters of the fund, we aim to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle some of our local environmental issues alongside them.

      Yet, even as tourists and visitors, you can also make small yet effective changes to lessen your environmental impact during your stay by limiting your energy consumption, using eco-friendly products, and taking deliberate steps to be environmentally friendly. 

      So, let’s get started with our latest guide to the best practices for eco-conscious tourists and visitors.


      Energy Efficiency in Ibiza


      Be mindful of your Water Consumption

      Using water efficiently can help lower your environmental impact. Even while washing dishes or brushing your teeth, simply turning off the tap can actually save over a litre of water within a 20-seconds timeframe alone. Given how much we complete such daily tasks, wasted water can add up very quickly. The same goes for requiring many showers during the hot weather and beach season. Be mindful and do your best to save water where you can.

      Check out the 5 golden rules to save water in Ibiza here: http://ibiza.travel/en/2019/08/five-golden-rules-for-careful-use-of-water-in-ibiza

      .

      Minimise your Electricity in your Ibiza Villa

      Make sure you do not leave your electronics on all day long. Electrical appliances should be turned off when not in use, and only turned on when necessary. For example, avoiding plugging in your mobile phone overnight can save a considerable amount of energy as charging only takes a few hours. Also, consider using high-energy appliances at night, such as dishwashers and washers, and always use the natural heat and light to dry laundry outside, rather than using a dryer.

      Be sure to maintain a comfortable temperature and airflow in your home by utilising your surrounding natural resources. Use the shades and open windows to keep your villa cool during the warmer months rather than racking up energy via air-con appliances. However, when the air-cons are in use, don’t leave the windows open. Where possible, turn off the lights and use natural light instead.

      .

      Recycling and Refuse in Ibiza

      In accordance with IbizaPreservation, the following points are to be considered in relation to waste and recycling when visiting:

      • 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 (ask your Prestige agent for one of our cotton "Prestige Going Green" reusable bags!)
      • Refuse throwaway plastics – choose reusable products
      • Refuse plastic straws

      .

      Caring for the Environment & Nature in Ibiza 

      Our island depends heavily on tourism and visitors for its economic well-being. Nevertheless, every year in Ibiza, we are inundated with both luxury and leisurely activities that contribute to pollution and make it difficult to conserve and sustain our ecosystem. You can make a difference in many ways with these simple tips.

      It’s important not to throw cigarette ends in the street or in nature, especially in our forests and woodland nature trails. Without even considering the risk of forest fires, our beaches, and natural surroundings should be respected. Although designated bins may be hard to find outside of urbanised areas, every tobacco store sells heat-proof ashtray wallets. These can be used to store cigarette waste which can then be disposed of properly alongside the rest of the day’s waste. 

      Don’t take souvenirs from our Posidonia and marine life, e.g. when sailing or visiting a beach, leave stones, shells, plants, and animals as they are in their natural habitat. Select an eco-friendly sunscreen that will protect your skin while not damaging marine life, collect your waste after you visit, don’t throw anything in the sea, and moor your boat in the right spot: Anchoring in Posidonia meadows is prohibited. Furthermore, jet-skiing and other high-pollution activities can also be avoided.

      Try walking or biking to your destination rather than driving if it’s close enough – it’s healthier and better for the environment. Another way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is by taking public transportation or if you must drive, maximise every person per car to ensure less transport is on the road. Land-based activities that produce high levels of pollution should also be considered minimally, like safari tours and quad biking.

      .

      Select Conscious & Local Businesses in Ibiza 

      Try and shop for products and services from local businesses and those who advocate for sustainability, eco-friendly products, fair trade, or have Corporate Social Responsibility as part of their business ethos. Even those businesses that make sure their employees have the right contracts and protections – such as insurance – as well as pay taxes are helping the Ibizan community and the environment. 

      Go to this google maps to see all the eco-shops available on the island.


      Every action we take will make a difference. The most important thing to remember is that our actions will result in a cleaner, greener island, both now as well as in the future.

      Why not take a look at our 2022 rentals for your next summer vacation with us at Prestige Properties Ibiza.

      Our company, Prestige Properties is fully committed to promoting energy efficiency here in Ibiza as a firm supporter of green living. If you are an eco-conscious warrior you may also be interested in our recent publication "Energy Efficient Homes: A Guide for Homeowners in Ibiza" article and "Energy Efficient Homes: A Guide for Home Owners Part 2" aimed at encouraging property owners and buyers to create energy-efficient homes.

        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 – It’s the Season of Giving Back

          Every year around Christmas, Prestige Properties supports a local charity. For 2021, we have chosen two charitable purposes: Ibiza Food Bank, which collects food for people in need, and Peacharoo, a caring heart who is raising funds to build a school for orphans in Uganda. 



          Ibiza Food Bank – Alleviating Poverty in Ibiza

          Image: Food for Ibiza

          Undoubtedly living through a global pandemic, for the last two years, has been quite challenging for everybody. While some were able to rearrange their way of living and working, others have lost their jobs, homes, and loved family members. Particularly here in Ibiza, people have suffered immensely due to the pandemic, as it has had a dramatic impact on the island’s economy. While many were able to work during the summer months, when tourism is booming, many fall into unemployment in winter. 

          As plenty of Ibiza’s inhabitants lose their regular income in winter, they must live from what they’ve earned during the high season, hence finding themselves in a miserable situation, with little or no income, no savings, and in the worst cases, without food. 

          Image: Food for Ibiza

          For this reason, Ibiza Food Bank started their initiative, supporting those who cannot afford to buy food. Their volunteers collect food donations and cash donations across the island. The donated food is then sorted in Playa Den Bossa, stored, and distributed to their charity partners (The Red Cross, Caritas, Mother Teresa Food Bank in Jesus, Equip Voluntario, Food for Ibiza, and Doctors of the World). With their help, around 4000 people are being fed, weekly. 

          To maximise their time and donations, Ibiza Food Bank has partnered up with Carritos Solidarios, making sure to be able to provide enough food during the hard winter months. Together they place trollies at the entrance of around 70 supermarkets in Ibiza, which are accompanied by two volunteers in uniform, encouraging shoppers to leave dry food donations and sanitary items. 

          Image: Food for Ibiza

          It is self-evident that feeding so many hungry people each week is a huge challenge. Furthermore, it is most likely that the number of people who depend on these donations will be rising. Besides their food donations, Ibiza Food Bank adds a 10€ voucher to the food pack to be spent in Spars supermarkets, which are located all around the island, making it easy for everybody to buy in a supermarket close to them. Furthermore, Ibiza Food Bank started a GoFundMe, where everybody can donate money easily, which is being used to top up the food parcels.


          Camino de Santiago for Uganda Orphans

          Image: BHHNP

          Another cause, for which we decided to raise awareness and donate money to is Peacharoo Peachey’s charity. Peacharoo is a good friend of one of our sales agents at Prestige, who started the Camino de Santiago from Valencia by himself in October to raise funds for Ugandan Orphans in rural Kabale. To finance the Camino, he sold all his belongings, as he sees this opportunity as a personal challenge and a possibility to help these kids. 

          Image: BHHNP

          Together with the local project BHHNP, his goal is to raise 70,000€ to buy land with school structures and to pay for the education of 163 orphans. All these kids have lost their parents to diseases. Some of them live with their relatives, others live in the wild, but all of them need food, love, and education. The local project’s objectives are to help the needy people and orphans in their community. It provides educational and medical services, to reduce the number of street kids and people in need. Currently, they are providing food, clothes, personal hygiene articles, and medical services.  

          Image: BHHNP

          From Prestige Properties Ibiza, we want to bring visibility to some of the charity initiatives that are organised by different associations and people of Ibiza. It is paramount we see the island as a whole and with equal opportunities for all, and where there are inequality and need, we desire to stand together to make a difference and create long-lasting improvements for the health and well-being of our local community. Especially this year, with the global impact of the pandemic, we also wanted to focus on a charity abroad.

          If you want to volunteer your time or get involved, check out the links below. Your support and help will be greatly appreciated by those who are struggling to care for themselves.

            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.


            Off-Setting

            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.
