St. Lucia’s Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain resorts moving to cut 90% of single-use plastics from their operations

To commemorate Earth Day 2018, St. Lucia’s Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain resorts reaffirmed their commitment to their ocean environment; moving to cut 90% of single-use plastics from their operations.

 

Since 2015, the resorts have made great strides in reducing plastic usage and in finding creative alternatives to plastics for food containers, cutlery, cups and straws, putting an immediate stop to their purchase of certain plastic products and Styrofoam.

Employees are encouraged to “Bring their own” reusable containers, cups or bottles, and metal cutlery has replaced plastic cutlery in the staff canteen.

For vegetative waste-clearing, single-use plastic bags have now been replaced with heavy duty reusable bags that are ultimately compostable at the end of their life cycle. More at eTurboNews.
