Climate Change

Reducing the negative impact of climate change requires a multifaceted approach involving both individual actions and collective efforts at the local, national, and global levels. Here are some ways to reduce the negative impact of climate change:

Reduce carbon emissions:

  • We encourage guests to ride bicycles. We have bicycles stationed across from the Wild Orchid Main Building and in front of the Spa.
  • We have solar Panels to preheat water.
  • We have reduced the amount of oil to generate energy by 30%
  • We only use Led builds and energy Efficient Appliances
  • Carpooling is encouraged.
  • We source fruits and vegetables from local suppliers.
  • 25% of our waste is composted onsite.
  • Organic waste is given to Pig Farmers.
  • Recycling in all departments
  • Regular beach and mangrove clean up and Sustainable Education

Plant trees and preserve forests:

  • Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so planting trees and preserving forests can help mitigate climate change.
  • We have quarterly tree planting exercises with guests and staff.
  • Our Green Garden team re-planted dead mangroves and monitored the life cycle. Numerous plants are planted monthly and are taken care of with natural fertilizers.

Promote sustainable agriculture:

Sustainable agriculture practices such as crop rotation, organic farming, and reducing chemical fertilizer use can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve soil health.

  • Whenever we go on our supplier visit, this is stressed with the suppliers visited.
  • In 2022 we hosted 45 Farmers who was trained on Environmental Health and Safety Practices for the preservation of Fruits, vegetables, and food health.

Reduce waste:

  • Waste is reduced from source in all departments.
  • We use up food items to reduce the amount of waste being thrown out daily.
  • We have a low carbon menu for Breakfast and Lunch. This is also served at Seaside grill.
  • We Recycle approximately 80% of recycled waste and donate items that we no longer need to all persons that need the items.
  • 40% of total damaged linen is donated Quarterly.
  • We reuse damaged linen to make sustainable items and used by entertainment for arts and craft.

Support renewable energy:

  • We have solar panels on the executive building of our property to preheat water.

Educate others:

  • We educate staff, guest and community members about climate change and its impacts can help raise awareness and encourage actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Advocate for policy change:

  • We have partnered with the JHTA and the JHTA Sustainability arm.

Conserve energy:

  • We can conserve energy by turning off lights and electronics when not in use, using natural light whenever possible, and adjusting our thermostats to conserve energy.

Conserve water:

  • We can conserve water by fixing leaks, taking shorter showers, and using low-flow showerheads and toilets.
