Like us, you might be interested in the environment. We do all we can to reduce our waste and recycle what we can. In keeping with our eco-friendly environment, Le Phare Bleu uses only non-toxic chemical solutions for all of our cleaning needs in guest rooms, public areas, and the restaurants. In addition, we take great pride in the reduction of plastic bags within our resort and have started to convey to our community as a whole the importance of using reusable bags for their shopping and household needs.
Recycling is a fairly new concept here in Grenada and it is normal to throw everything away which is then taken to a landfill; but this cannot be sustained. Here are a few examples of how we are trying to make a difference.
Grenada Young Entrepreneurs Project (GYEP)
GYEP is the first of it’s kind. Jana’s brain child as she just couldn’t bear to throw any more wine bottles in to the trash. Through setting up the first glass recycling business in Grenada, Jana also saw the opportunity to find young Grenadians to run the business and take it to the next level in the future. This team is making bottles into craft items, grinding glass into sand, as well as producing glass chips to be sold.
The Compost Project
Our kitchen staff is learning the importance of recycling and thus are keeping all the peelings and cuttings of the vegetables and fruits for our compost.
Le Phare Bleu’s gardening team cares for the composting bins making sure the right conditions are reached to make the homemade compost. As a result of our composting efforts, the gardens at Le Phare Bleu have won a gold medal from the Grenada Horticulture Society.
