Our Salinda Family has always believed that dreams can only be achieved if one puts their mind and body in it. This is why our sisters and brothers make sure that their minds and bodies are in harmony with nature, and that our practices lead us and the people around us towards sustainable living. We aim to use recyclable materials and promote environmental stewardship in our daily operations.

 

Our goal is to become plastic-free with the help of renewable and recyclable products in the future. Cocktails and smoothies are great companions on any relaxing beach trips! The Salinda family wishes to deliver those cold beverages to you while staying environmentally friendly - we use acrylic, bamboo, and stainless steel straws. These substitutes of plastic straws are completely recyclable and can be reused after a thorough cleaning.

In addition, we are trying to reduce our usage of plastic materials by using ceramic rather than plastic bottles for shampoo, conditioner, and bath gel containers. To further diminish the threats to our environment, we introduced bamboo toothbrushes, wooden combs, and razors wrapped in soft recyclable paper packages.

From May 2019, Salinda Resort became the official partner of WWF-Vietnam for Plastic Reducing Management on Phu Quoc Island that is dedicated to promoting, educating, and continuing to reduce and eliminate single-use plastics in our operations and daily lives.

 

The production of this biodegradable and environmentally friendly pen is entirely entrusted to our fellow blind friends. Salinda has implemented the plastic-pen free movement since November 2018. Help us support the visually impaired community by purchasing your very own CM Seed pen in our Salinda Boutique. The cap of the pen has a seed that you can plant and grow into your own small hummingbird tree (Agastya tree)! www.cmseedpen.com 

 

The Salinda wooden key is a little trinket that unlocks the pathway to a sustainable world. With our mission to reduce plastic usage, Salinda Resort is the first pioneer in Phu Quoc to introduce a plastic-free and environmentally friendly replacement for key cards. Rest assured that while you’re enjoying a good night’s sleep, you’re giving nature a blissful snooze too!

 

The bright sun and warm days are certainly key players for beach destinations, but our resort aims to further benefit from this weather in a more sustainable and (mindful) way. A fraction of Salinda’s energy which powers the water heaters is generated from solar panels installed on top of our roof. The entirely renewable source of energy greatly reduces the emission of greenhouse gases and promotes that sustainable hospitality is possible.

 

It’s important to stay hydrated during the hot tropical climate, which is why Salinda leaves complimentary water in your rooms every day. Your refreshing drinks are served in recyclable plastic bottles which can be broken down after use and remade into other eco-friendly plastic products. So when you’re done with your water, just throw the plastic bottles into the bin and our brothers and sisters will make sure to filter them out and send them to recycling companies in Ho Chi Minh City - giving the bottles a new purpose and a longer lifespan. 

 

If you feel that your bed linens are dirty, place this card on your bed to get them replaced. As for the towels in the bathroom, hang them on the hooks if you wish to reuse them. Thank you for supporting us in protecting the environment.

 

In Salinda, even the darkest and dirtiest places can become pure and clean again. Thanks to our sewage purification treatment, the contaminated water can be thoroughly filtered and used for watering our trees and flowers. The purification embodies physical, biological, and chemical processes that remove bacteria and toxins, which is safer for the environment. This way, we save an extensive amount of water, and while keeping our plants green and healthy!

 

Salinda resort pays attention to its products and materials even after the end of their useful lifespan. Some materials require special and careful disposal in order to avoid environmental damages and harm. Every year, a company which collects potentially hazardous materials, helps Salinda dispose batteries, ink, non LED light bulbs, in a safe and environmentally friendly manner. This way, we ensure that everything that comes in and out of Salinda doesn’t damage our planet.
