House of Java
“An eco-friendly choice”
House of Java’s Garden
Our garden helps reduce carbon dioxide and produce oxygen; Fresh and Clean air in the Heart of the City.
There are a variety of fruit-trees
Calamansi & Avocado are among them
Also flowering trees like Ylang-Ylang & Narra,
can be found in our garden, which in the blooming season,
attracts birds and insects.
The many plants also provide a perfect shelter
and are home to wildlife like birds, lizards and butterflies
Reduced Energy Consumption
… and furthermore, the trees shade our buildings, to reduce consumption of energy.
We have our own shallow-well,
with a manual hand-pump to save energy,
for watering our garden in the dry season.
Cagayan de Oro City has just begun segregating organic waste from non-biodegradable waste, which we have been doing for years already. Segregating organic waste and keeping it in your garden, not only improves the quality of the garden soil, but also reduce resources used for collecting garbage and bringing it to a land-fill.
We have a compost-pit for organic waste,
to reduce garbage going to landfills.
Help segregate garbage
using the respective garbage-bins we have at House of Java.
And try to bring the habits with you and do the same
when you are out in the city or at home.
All our Rooms has shower-heads with flow restrictor build-in,
which reduce water consumption compared to “bucket bath”.
which reduce water consumption
Power Saving Key Cards are installed in all Rooms.
This means no wasted energy for Aircon, TV or light,
when you leave the room.
You will still have an option to charge your Mobile or Laptop,
while out, since we made one outlet, always on.
Since the local power company has improved their service
within the latter years and “brown-outs” are fewer and shorter,
we decided to not install a generator.
A generator is a very ineffective way, to produce power
and even more for a 5-10 minutes “brown-out”.
Each room has a 30 hour Emergency Lights
Go from House of Java to f.ex. Cogon (Public Market),
is an easy walk of 7 minutes or make use of the local Sikad drivers,
to prevent increase of air pollution in CdO City.
We would like to use this non-polluting option (Sikad) also, when going to Limketkai Mall or Magnum Express Terminal, but sadly this is not possible, since they don’t allow non-polluting Sikad in their property!
But it’s possible to visit other big Malls;
like SM Downtown or Centrio Mall, using Sikads.
