We feel that it is our obligation to reduce the Rising Cock carbon footprint in order to preserve the natural beauty of Lagos, so that your sons and daughters can also visit the Cock one day! Our facilities are updated to be more energy efficient, and our staff is trained to adopt environmentally friendly procedures in order to remain within green standards.
Three labeled recycle bins in key areas of the hostel serve to collect all recyclable materials (glass, plastic, cans). When they are full, staff members sort them in the proper bins of the town’s recycling center. We do this once or twice everyday.
Because of the sunny weather for which Lagos is famous, we have installed a water heating system which is powered through means of solar energy. All of the energy needed to take a relaxing shower after the beach is green my friends!
Because we all drink a lot here, there is no question that the toilets are flushed very often. Regular toilets use up to 22.7 liters of water at every flush. In order to cut down on all of that wasted water, we have installed dual flush toilets which only use 3 liters for liquid waste and 6 liters for the heavy duty waste. By making this small, but important, modification we were able to cut 67% of water use.
It’s easy to leave a light on by accident. In order to avoid this problem, we have installed sensor lights in all of our bathrooms.
Second hand smoke is not fun for non-
Our hostel supports local farmer’s markets. All meals and events at the hostel are catered with locally grown produce.
