Bandos Maldives Halts use of Plastic Straws

Bandos Maldives announced that they will no longer be making use of plastic straws in the resort. They made this announcement through their Facebook page as part of their Earth Day 2019 celebrations and as part of reducing the usage of single-use plastic in the resort.

With regards to the decision to discontinue single-use plastic straws, the resort ceased to use plastic straws from 22nd April onwards and asks guests to avoid usage of straws if possible. They added that if needed, a biodegradable straw will be provided.

“If a straw isn’t required for your drink, join with us in this worldwide movement and commit to skipping the straw which is only a small step that will go a long way in protecting our species.” said the announcement made by Bandos. 

Bandos had previously switched over to reusable glass bottles in order to reduce the usage of single-use plastic in the resort. They also produce their own water in their own drinking water facility.
