Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives Pledges To Ban Plastic Straws

Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives has pledged to ban plastic straws.

Plastic straws have quickly become a symbol of the world’s unnecessary reliance on plastic. Even more, they have become a symbol of plastic’s horrific effects on the environment. One way to reduce the impact of plastic straws on the environment is to simply stop using plastic straws: Team at Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives encourages guests to either drink directly from a glass or use a reusable alternative to plastic.


Reusable stainless-steel straws are such an alternative. They are much better than plastics, for more than just the reason of benefiting the environment, they are eco-friendly and contributes to less waste in landfill.

“We are consistently seeking new innovative ways to incorporate world eco trends into our daily island operations, whilst ensuring the guest journey and team efficiency are at the forefront. The recent removal of all single-use straws on our island is one of many initiatives that we have launched and plan to launch soon” said Dean Jarvis, Director Food & Beverage.
