Travel

Instead of celebrating a single day or month, some hotels and resorts celebrate the earth year-round. With concrete sustainable initiatives without any greenwashing, these hotels make a difference. Consider these properties as you make travel plans this year.

Mango House, LXR Hotels & Resorts

This brand-new Seychelles resort supports local communities and businesses, using locally handcrafted bath products both made of local tropical ingredients and biodegradable. These plant-based products come with eco-friendly packaging processed in the region. Relying on local communities and businesses sees a major reduction in carbon emissions and also boosts the local economy. Mango House also utilizes ceramic dispensers, which has saved more than 10,000 plastic amenity bottles so far.

 

Nearly a plastic-free resort, Mango House comprises 41 sea-facing villas and suites. In addition to sparkling pools, the property boasts five unique dining venues and a spa.

 

Relais & Châteaux

At Relais & Châteaux, incorporating conservation, ethical cuisine, biodiversity and low-waste initiatives serves as proof of the brand’s commitment to the environment. As a whole, the brand partners with NGOS, including the United Nationals, Sow Food International to align with global campaigns. These campaigns, such as World Oceans Day and Food for Change, help set a new standard for sustainable hospitality through a network of Michelin Star chefs.

 

With properties spanning the globe, from Asia to the Caribbean to Europe, Relais & Châteaux aims at making an example for other hospitality brands. One of its properties in South America, Awasi Iguazú, has become completely carbon neutral.

Necker Island part of Virgin Limited Edition

Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island part of Virgin Limited Edition runs off 90–100 percent renewable energy daily. This achievement is thanks to three large wind turbines, a grid system and solar farms found on the island. The property also supports wildlife conservation, protecting endangered animals like giant tortoises, Madagascan lemurs and exotic birds. Additionally, the water tanks on the island collect between 20,000 and 30,000 gallons of water on a good rain day. This water is then used for irrigation.

 

The property also works with Unite BVI, a non-profit foundation based in the British Virgin Islands aimed at bringing people, resources and ideas together. This partnership strives to improve education for local children, control the spread of mosquito-borne diseases and support emerging entrepreneurs.
