Switching to eco-friendly / natural cleaning products as well as soaps in rooms ; reducing energy consumption by encouraging and educating guests to turn off lights and aircon when not needed ; using energy saving bulbs for lighting ; using water saving settings for washing machines and dishwashers ; changing towels only when necessary (with the collaboration of conscious guests) ; avoiding any single use plastic items (such as straws, plastic water bottles, plastic bags etc)

All these are tiny little things that do not require major works or particularly huge investments, and yet they could already make a huge difference for our environment: imagine if every single hotel in the world would start from these few easy steps!

Our first stop: Ubud.
