SUSTAINABILITY AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

In addition to the produce we grow ourselves in our vegetable and herb gardens, produce is sourced locally from organic, free range, and ethically sound farms and suppliers.
Non-local specialty ingredients are sourced from local, independently owned and operated businesses.

Environmental Responsibility

On board el gastrónomo, we us only biodegradable or recyclable service items. This includes plates made of sugarcane, utensils made of potato starch, and cups made from sustainable plant-based resin, as well as recyclable napkins made of at least 70% post-consumer recycled material.

In addition, cleaning supplies used on board el gastró are all either: 100% plant-based, certified eco-friendly, biodegradable, made of post-consumer recycled materials, or a combination of the above.

Spent vegetable and canoloa oils are turned into biofuel locally for distribution to farms where equipment has been converted to run on biofuel.
