From our organic vegetable garden and mushroom hut to supporting elephants and mangrove ecosystems, everything we do adheres to the Six Senses approach to environmental responsibility.
Evason Hua Hin donates all profits from the sale of toy elephants that can be found in guest rooms and the resort's boutique to Kuiburi National Park to support their work of maintaining the wild elephants and other native animals in a natural environment. They bring awareness to the fore for the annual commemoration events for Thai Elephant Day.
The resort has adopted a new direction by combining organic gardening using permaculture principals and an on-site recycling program. An organic raised bed garden is being built using a combination of recycled materials.
The results may surprise you. The idea is to use the area as an educational tool for the local community to demonstrate that the concept of waste is essentially a question of perception. We are experimenting building beds using old beer bottles, wine bottles, mud bricks and aluminum cans to grow a range of different organic vegetables (yard long beans, chillis, buttercrunch, lolla rossa, oak leaf, cos and rocket lettuce as well as a range of herbs).
Our waste management practice includes reducing, re-using, re-cycling and disposing of waste appropriately so only small amounts of waste are delivered to the municipal landfill. Paper, glass, aluminum, plastic and metal is recycled. We reuse old bed sheets for wrapping cloth and laundry bags. We have switched to rechargeable batteries to reduce electronic waste. Peelings from the kitchen is used in the pig raising farm. Organic waste from garden goes through a recycling process by allowing it to decompose. After a couple months it turns into natural soil conditioner and fertilizer in the resort's garden and vegetation projects.
We contribute funds, manpower, and support to local NGOs, government agencies, local schools and the community to reach their social goals.
Children from a hill tribe orphanage have been moved far from their homes and are living in a house in Baan Pa Deng Sub district, near Pha La U Waterfall. They come for schooling and are self-sustaining, growing vegetables and fruit, raising hens for eggs and frogs for meat. Recently, we helped them build an egg farm and vegetable plantation. Each year we visit people with disabilities who are living on minimal funding supported by the government, to bring living materials, food and rice for their consumption. There are games and other activities, and a delicious lunch prepared by our chefs.
Creating awareness of mangrove conservation among children from local schools and the community, who are then prepared to conduct mangrove eco-tours for tourists as volunteer youth guides during weekends and school breaks.
Conducting training sessions with native speakers for Basic English Conversation for Tourism, which motivates students to be able to speak confidently with visitors. As a result, half of them have been selected to move into the next step of a development program on Effective English Communication, Sirinart Rajini Ecosystem Learning Center.
