Reduction on the Consumption of Fresh Water and Resources
Laundering on the resort takes place using a natural water source; the production of fresh water from the sea with a reverse osmosis plant reduces the drain on the island’s precious resource water in the rainforest, upon which rivers and eco-systems rely.
Improved Wastewater Management
A sewerage treatment plant produces filtered water that supplies ponds allowing the team to cultivate indigenous fresh water shrimp in the ponds. These improvements encourage amazing bird life around the ponds; treated gray water is reused for toilets and for property-wide irrigation; massive investments in silt-traps which are designed to prevent silt from the heaviest rains from reaching the sea and causing damage to the reef off The Body Holiday resort. They also keep the sea crystal clear for guests.
Waste Minimization, Reuse and Recycle
We use a fertilizer compost system. Plastic bottles of products have been replaced in most bathrooms with reusable containers. The buffet avoids using packaging and cardboard boxes that would lead to waste. St. Lucia is home to a number of pig farms, we supply these farms with leftover food from the kitchens to avoid unnecessary waste and aid the local community. By reducing the waste output, we divert unnecessary litter from landfill sites.
