This small luxury village has used glass water bottles in their guest rooms since their grand opening in 2008. They do not refill the empty bottles at the hotel, but have a contract with a water supply company to reuse and refill the glass water bottles. It is a simple way to reduce the costs of buying plastic bottles and paying to dispose of all the waste.
Banthai Village also reduces waste by recycling wastewater from the kitchen to water plants in the garden. They feel their customers are very satisfied with the hotel’s policy to reduce and recycle waste as much as possible.
