AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY AND SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE ST. LUCIA RESORT
Ti Kaye Resort & Spa was constructed out of a love for St. Lucia’s natural landscape. Because of this, we consider the environment and ecosystem to be one of our most important responsibilities and take many measures to protect the beauty of the island that we so enjoy.
Our green initiatives are based on reducing waste and using natural, renewable resources whenever possible. A few of our initiatives include:
- Water: We provide free purified water made on property through reverse osmosis and UV filtering to all guests to reduce the need for plastic water bottles. Water stations can be found all around the resort as well as on the beach.
- Recycling and Composting: We are working alongside Renew St. Lucia to recycle everything we can. We also have 2 large composting areas on property for our fruit and vegetable scraps, and will soon begin working with local pig farms who will collect food scraps from the resort on a daily basis.
- Solar Power: We were the first resort in St. Lucia to install solar panels. Currently 25% of the resort’s electricity is solar powered, with plans for expansion. Solar hot water heaters have also been installed on 50% of our rooms.
- Local Produce: We grow all of our own herbs and flowers for resort use on property. Our menus are also focused on supporting local suppliers and produce.
- Spa Products: Our Kai Koko Spa features an organic product line using local St. Lucia ingredients with 80% of the products being coconut based.
- Lighting: We have installed over 1000 LED bulbs property wide to reduce our carbon footprint.
Should you wish to help us protect our environment, here are a few suggestions for your stay:
- Please ask to borrow reusable bags from Reception if you go shopping rather than using plastic bags.
- Allow us to refill your reusable water bottle with our purified water rather than purchasing plastic water bottles.
- Switch off your lights, fans and AC when not needed.
- Please separate recyclable items from actual garbage in your rooms to help with our sorting and recycling.
- Skip the straw in your tropical drink to avoid using unnecessary plastic.
- Avoid touching or damaging the coral when swimming in the ocean, we also recommend using coral-friendly sunscreen so harsh chemicals are not washed off in the water.
We are actively working on being the change we want to see in this world, and welcome your participation!
