Mai Chau Ecolodge
Starting in January 2015, this ecolodge converted to using glass water bottles in all the guestrooms. Mai Chau recognizes their responsibility to reduce waste to promote sustainable tourism.
They invested in a water treatment system to use refillable bottles, which then reduced the cost of transporting bottled water from Hanoi. This hotel implements a broad range of other sustainability measures such as recycling, using refillable containers for amenities like soap and shampoo and installing low consumption fixtures for toilets, sinks and showers. Requesting guests to reuse linens also raises awareness for the need to save water.
