Maldives' national problem is certainly how to manage the amounts of waste produced daily. With recently introduced waste management centers in the Maldives, still no solution as a whole has been provided by the government which makes the need of best practices of the resorts a must. As such, we have undertaken projects such as.
Bottling of our own drinking water in re-usable glass bottles, since August 2010, thereby effecting a saving of over 400 disposable plastic bottles every day.
Complete halt of the usage of plastic straws (2010) and plastic bags (in outlets 2008 and rooms 2011).
Re-fillable guest toiletries.
Withdrawal of usage of disposable paper towels and drinks coasters; portioned packaging served reduced to the minimum.
Efficient “RRR” Waste Management, centering on raising awareness among staff and local communities.
Recyclable materials segregated and compacted for shipping.
Household batteries re-exported to Europe for proper disposal.
