Fushifaru goes green

Fushifaru goes green and implements eco-friendly policies applicable to its’ Residents and guests.

Plastic is the cancer of the earth, and the Maldives witnesses the immediate effects of plastic through the degradation of oceans and marine life on a daily basis. This has made Fushifaru Maldives extremely determined to combat this detrimental, global issue by implementing strict policies to make sure they do not contribute to the degradation of the planet.

The ‘Waste Management’ policy by the resort will focus on efficient and eco-friendly ways to manage the waste on the island. Glass, plastics, cardboard, wood and wet waste such as food, flowers, and other decomposable waste will all be separated and disposed of in their assigned bins.

A statement released by the resort stated, “The ‘0 single-use plastic’ policy aims to completely ban single-use plastics on the island. From plastic bags, plastic straws, cling film and bin bags… Fushifaru will be banning all of these items and will use greener, eco-friendly alternatives. We strongly believe that these policies will make a difference and bring Fushifaru closer to its goal of being a plastic-free resort!”
