Melia Bali – Building A Caring Relationship With Our Planet

April 13, 2019 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

At Melia Bali, we are embracing our role as custodians of our fragile earth. To honour our commitment to its ongoing care, we have established the Melia Bali Sustainability Program, an initiative that has won a number of awards in recent years including the UNWTO EarthCheck Master Achievement Award in 2018.The most important relationship that we all have is with the planet that gives us life. In our fast-paced, modern world it is all too easy to take our planet and its resources for granted and such complacency risks devastating consequences for the future. We are only just starting to really understand that our planet weaves its life-giving magic through a multitude of finely balanced environmental systems, systems that we depend upon for our very survival.

The Melia Bali Sustainability Program introduces strategies to reduce the impact of our operations on the earth, and the latest phase of this program tackles the use of damaging plastics by eliminating them from our services wherever possible.

The use of single-use plastic water bottles and drinking straws are significant causes of plastic
pollution across the world, to address these restaurants use glass bottles instead of plastic ones, our guests can purchase reusable personal steel drinking bottles and our new
biodegradable drinking straws are made from corn and cassava. This is only the start and
further initiatives in the program are:
• We are using reusable materials to line the wooden trash bins in our guest rooms.
• Eco-friendly materials are being used instead of plastic for our picnic boxes
• We are using eco cups in the spa, kid’s club and the fitness and sports centre.
• Our room slippers are now being made from woven bamboo
• We no longer serve butter in portion control plastic pots but in ceramic dishes.
• Plastic coasters have been replaced by wood.
• The gardeners now use reusable pillowcases to replace plastic bags for collecting leaves
and other garden waste.

We are the ancestors of the future and will be remembered for the health of the environment
we pass on to future generations, come and join us in building a loving, caring relationship
with our planet.
