In line with Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels’ commitment to promote responsible and sustainable tourism development, drinks have been served without a straw during a trial period, with a long term aim to remove non-biodegradable straws from the Group’s hotels in Mauritius.

Plastic drinking straws are single-use and non-biodegradable. Being small and light, they are seldom recycled and have a negative impact on nature, including our oceans.

Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels is aware of the problem and has experienced serving the Beautiful Cocktail, its signature welcome drink, without a plastic straw to guests at Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa for a one-month trial period. The results proved conclusive and the hotel group aims to gradually extend the initiative to its other hotels in Mauritius to help reduce plastic waste pollution.

 


The NGO, Ocean Conservacy ranks plastic straws among the 5 most found litter items on European coasts. They not only contaminate sea water, but also pose a threat to animals. Various actions have been initiated worldwide to address this pollution. The first International No Straw Day was also celebrated on 3 February 2018 with the participation of over 35 countries.

Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels has a long-standing commitment to social and environmental responsibility. Various initiatives have already been introduced by the Group to preserve its human, natural and social capitals. This is reflected in a number of recognised certifications, such as the EarthCheck international sustainable tourism certification achieved by all Beachcomber Hotels in Mauritius and the Group’s Head Office, Beachcomber House; the ISO 50001 energy management standard has also been successfully implemented at Beachcomber Catering.

 

 

Our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint reflects in the substantial decline in our energy and water consumption, as well as the amount of waste sent to landfill. Furthermore, over 2,000 indigenous trees have been planted on Le Morne Peninsula and over 80% of the lighting used in our hotels is of LED type.

 

 

On the social front, Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa has teamed up over the last months with the NGO, Manzer Partazer to recover unused food, which is offered to primary schoolchildren in the neighbouring village of Case Noyale. This initiative helps reduce food waste while providing quality food to needy children. After a 5-month trial period, a memorandum of understanding has been signed in December for a long-term collaboration.

 

 

The PEJ youth employability programme has trained more than 2,000 beneficiaries since inception in 2004. The products of some 55 craftworkers are also promoted through the Local Beautiful Hands programme. At hotels level, 23 activities organised by the regional committees of Fondation Espoir Développement Beachcomber (EDF) have reached some 575 people.

In addition, Beachcomber supports initiatives such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, a personal development programme for young people. Our hotel guests also contribute to FED’s social programmes through the Top FED initiative.

Training our Artisans is another important issue. Actions taken include an awareness campaign that is currently underway in our hotels with training sessions and the use of communication tools such as stickers to remind them of their “duties” as energy-accountable citizens.
