We at Ti Kaye Resort & Spa are committed into moving toward a “carbon neutral” environment by getting our community to participate in small but impactful methods of recycling. We presently work with “Renew St. Lucia Inc” a recycling company that collects all plastics and tin cans used on property. When ordering flour for culinary purposes we reuse the flour bags as storage for clearing of dead leaves when looking after the resorts landscape.
We are proud to mention that we produce our own water, which is sediment, carbon, sediment then UV filtered at our desalination plant located on property. Our water is placed in glass bottles for guest consumption in the efforts of reducing plastic. We have our own carbonating machine so our Ti Kaye water is available as either still or sparkling. Our Kai Koko Spa uses Saint Lucian made products such as lemongrass, peppermint, and coconut oil. These locally grown products are also enjoyed and used in all our room’s bathroom amenities. A popular favourite is our Ti Kaye branded peppermint & cocoa soap.
The introduction of sustainable agriculture to the resort gave birth to our well cared for home-grown herb garden. This is looked after by our Grounds staff that employs the methods of organic farming through composting. We grow herbs and fruit in abundance and can supply the entire resort. Herbs include; rosemary, mint and basil, plus we also grow chives, spring onions and peppers to name a few. Our fresh fruit consists of soar orange, mango, grapefruit, golden apple and lots more. These fruits are use to make juice which is available for Breakfast and Lunch depending on what fruit is in season. A special treat for afternoon tea can also be found on the property and that includes lemongrass and Bay leaf tea.
Newly installed energy efficient bar fridges help reduce our carbon print as well as our much anticipated 2014 project of solar powered energy throughout the resort. A greener YOU plus a greener ME equals a GREENER WORLD!
