Lady Elliot is the first island on the Great Barrier Reef to eliminate selling bottled water at the Resort which is another step forward in reducing our environmental footprint.
Reusable bottles are available to guests (at a small fee) that can be filled from drinking fountains located around the resort or from taps in their rooms. The water produced on the island is pure desalinated seawater with no additives.
We choose to do this to ensure the preservation and protection of the oceans and the planet for the future!
The extracting, packaging and transporting of a litre of bottled water can emit hundreds of times more greenhouse gases than a litre of tap water, so not only are we reducing the number of bottles but also helping to save the environment. We all need to take a bold stand.
Next time you're on LEI make sure to grab yourself an 'Eco Warrior' drink bottle and follow the motto Reduce, Reduce & Recycle by eliminating single-use plastic from your daily life!
REFUSE THE STRAW
To combat the fight against single-use plastic, we have initiated a step forward by removing plastic straws for our bar/café!
By doing this we are hoping to demonstrate to our guests the necessity to be conscious of the amount of plastic consumed each year and how each person can make a small difference by refusing the simplest of everyday items!
