Fushifaru Maldives goes green
Fushifaru Maldives has implemented eco-friendly policies applicable to its residents and guests.
Plastic is described as the “cancer of the earth”, and being in the Maldives, we witness the immediate effects of plastic through the degradation of our oceans and our marine life on a daily basis.
This has made Fushifaru to take action to combat this detrimental, global issue by implementing strict policies to make sure that the resort does not contribute to the degradation of our planet.
Fushifaru’s waste management policy will focus on efficient and eco-friendly ways to manage the waste on the island. Glass, plastics, cardboard, wood and wet waste such as food, flowers and other decomposable waste will all be separated and disposed of in their assigned bins.
The ‘zero single-use plastic’ policy aims to completely ban single-use plastics on the island. From plastic bags, plastic straws, cling film and bin bags, Fushifaru will be banning all these items and using greener, eco-friendly alternatives.
“We strongly believe that these policies will make a difference and bring Fushifaru closer to its goal of being a plastic-free resort,” a statement issued by the resort read.
Only a 35-minute breathtaking seaplane flight away from Velana International Airport, Fushifaru is nestled between a national Marine Protected Area and three of the Maldives’ most iconic dive sites. Fushifaru is a with an endless promise of adventure, excitement, discovery and serenity all in one diverse landscape.
