Charcoal oven from 100 percent recyclables

This ecological project to create a charcoal oven at Six Senses Laamu has been completed through collaboration between the resort’s Earth Lab and engineering teams.

As sustainability represents a core value of Six Senses, and to help overcome the challenges integral to an isolated island, Six Senses Laamu is constantly working towards being self-sufficient. The resort reduces waste as much as possible, either disposing of it responsibly or recycling it onsite.

“Producing our own charcoal for our beach barbecues means we can minimize imports and work towards zero-waste,” says general mechanic Paranthaman Subramiam. The wood for the charcoal comes from waste hardwood, and the wood used to fuel the oven’s fire comes from carpentry scraps such as off-cuts from fences.
