The Hopkins Kite Festival Flies High in Belize!

The Hopkins Kite Festival was a huge success Saturday!  Kids of all ages had a great time and enjoyed the prizes of backpacks and school supplies donated by guests of Hamanasi.  Congratulations to all of the participants and winners for excellent work on the creative and beautiful kites of the day.  If you’re traveling to Hamanasi soon, you can bring new or gently used backpacks for our “Backpack Project”.   The backpacks are put to great use!

Hamanasi Unveils New Sustainability Products

 
Environmentally-friendly plastic bags and straws are now available at Hamanasi.  We just received our first order! That’s an exciting “green” step forward for Belize! The products are made from recycled sugar cane – WOW!  Once thrown away, they begin decomposition in 150 days. Excellent!  We appreciate any way we can become better stewards of this beautiful planet!

Belize resort gets greener and sweeter!

Hamanasi has acquired an Organic Plumb Candy Leaf Plant (Stevia plummerae)! This little plant packs an huge sweet punch! The small bushy plant has mint shaped leaves, and its extract has up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar! Due to its amazing sweetness, Stevia has garnered attention with the rise in demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives. Because Stevia has a negligible effect on blood glucose, and even enhancing glucose tolerance, it is attractive as a natural sweetener to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets and as a natural sweetener to diabetics. The “Sugar Leaf” is an exciting addition to Hamanasi’s ever-growing organic garden! We’re already busily thinking of exciting new applications for this naturally sweet leaf…
Tea anyone?
