Go Green: Our Eco-friendly efforts to maintain the beauty that is Talalla!

February 6, 2019 | Did You Know?, Resort, Sri Lanka, travel

It is so important for us to be able to protect our little oasis that is Talalla Retreat! Over the years we have been implementing more and more projects that support our sustainability mission. Read on to find out about our eco-friendly efforts!

Talalla boasts two beautiful veggie gardens that produce amazing organic fruits, vegetables and spices to be used by our chefs.

Using our home grown produce as well as locally sourced seafood and produce, means we are able to minimise our food miles and environmental impact.

Live the eco life!

Our amazing Bamboo Huts create incredible open air living spaces for you to enjoy. They are also made entirely of natural materials and utilise solar power for a natural way to heat water and power fans!

We encourage all of our guests to be mindful of waste!

Meet our Karma bags! Guests can take these bags with them to carry their own waste in or even collect others. Guests can then place their waste in our collection bins for correct disposal and composting.

It has never been easier to say NO to plastic!

We offer metal straws with all of our drinks including fresh coconuts! We also have fresh water filters available in our restaurant to refill your reusable water bottle!!

With predictions indicating there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish by 2050, it is more important than ever to reduce our consumption!

This one we are really proud of!

With the assistance of Compost Central we have created a closed-loop waste management system. This allows us to offset our carbon footprint and create valuable bio-product to use in our gardens.

We are the first hotel in the tropics to implement this system and cannot wait to see others follow in our footsteps!

Get Involved!

Once a month we run clean ups of Talalla beach! We encourage all of our guests to get involved to maintain the beauty of our local beach!

Keep your eyes peeled for the next clean up…
