Anurak Community Lodge, Khao Sok,Thailand
This brand new hotel started business with the sustainable values of “reduce, reuse and recycle” firmly in place. They reduce waste, reuse glass water bottles in the guest rooms and restaurant and recycle plastic, glass, tin and paper. They reduce waste by not offering small packages of foods such as butter, jam, coffee, cream and sugar. Instead, these items are served in refillable containers. Buying in bulk is cheaper too. The same goes for the shampoo and shower gel in the bath. Instead of single use disposables, the lodge uses refillable containers. The recycling proceeds are given back to the local staff.
