Swap corner

We often think of clothes as harmless, but in reality is the textile industry one of the most polluting ones. Fast and cheap fashion together with out of control consumerism and our obssesive need to express our individuality through clothes is reckless. That is why, we are giving an opportunity to our guests to think and act more sustainable and to use our swap corner as an inspiration while traveling.

Painting canvas #REUSE

We don't have to engage in grand heroic actions to participate in change. So in our hostel we think about oportunities how to act more suistainable literally all the time.We chose to REUSE our old sheets as painting canvas and our in house world known painter Eduardo showed us how to do it. And we are telling you, it is super easy. All you need is an old sheet, wooden frame, white wall colour and wood glue. First you need to measure and adjust the sheet to the wooden frame. Then you cut and attach it to the frame very tightly. Mix the glue and the paint all together, followed twice by paint – dry procedure. And there you have it, just as good as you would buy it at the store, but with the sustainable touch. Eduardo later used canvas to create another of his masterpieces.


At Hostel Celica, we strive to turn bright ideas into an even brighter future. You can read our sustainability vision in full here.
