Earth Lab showcases our sustainability efforts to reduce consumption, produce locally and support communities and ecosystems. It serves as a place to communicate the work happening on and off site, for example marine conservation, forestry or farming initiatives, harnessing renewable energy, and bottling drinking water. It also displays our consumption data including water, energy and waste.
All guests and hosts are welcome to join us and learn new techniques, such as making do-it-yourself compost and chemical-free detergent or extracting the essential oils from herbs grown in our organic gardens. Children can join in foraging, farming and recycling during Grow With Six Senses activities. For an unconventional souvenir, Earth Lab’s seed bank and “how to” videos allow guests to grow organic produce back home.
Six Senses has adopted a philosophy of Zero Waste, which entails upcycling materials for innovative reuses as well a producing materials on site to reduce transportation-related impacts. For example, Six Senses Zighy Bay upcycles materials for use in spa and room amenities, while landscaping waste is fed to milk-producing goats.
We also showcase the work that takes place off site. For example, Six Senses Ninh Van Bay has assisted in a number of projects with local schools such as improving drinking water systems, and is launching a coral reef restoration program. Six Senses Fiji is also working to protect local wildlife and marine life including the endangered iguanas on Malolo Island.
Core activities are aligned across properties, with each contributing their own ways to achieve our sustainability goals:
We are delighted to be one of the first signatories of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative, part of the One Planet Sustainable Tourism Programme led by the UN Environment Programme and UN World Tourism Organization, in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
