Reethi Faru Resort, Maldives

Reethi Faru Resort

Island states like the Maldives are some of the most vulnerable areas when it comes to plastic waste. Reethi Faru Resort is determined to keep its surrounding environment as pristine as possible. The resort has made a start to reduce its plastic waste by switching to paper straws, bottling water in reusable glass bottles, and introducing refillable toiletries. Waste is separated and compacted onsite to make the recycling shipping and processing more efficient. On the 15th day of each month, the hotel organises beach and reef clean-ups with volunteering staff and guests. This project is supported by a residential, marine biologist to maximise the benefits, educating staff and guests about environmental awareness and challenges along the way.
