Sacha Ji is a pioneer in sustainable architecture in Ecuador. Green roofs were used to reduce CO2 emissions and trap heat inside, brick walls were made from excavated earth. For each wooden door, a tree of the same species was planted on site. The dormitory's electricity and hot water are powered directly by solar energy. More than 2,000 used tires under the floor slabs trap heat inside, repel moisture and act as seismic insulation. The fireplaces have a combustion system that allows for efficient wood consumption and also radiates heat throughout the spaces. The chimney flues pass through adjoining rooms and therefore also heat the adjoining rooms. The local materials used for interiors and exteriors are low maintenance, as well as in several cases, recycled, reused and do not contain any chemicals that may be harmful to the environment.
