Alila Diwa Goa takes eco-friendly measures to reduce carbon footprint

Alila Hotels & Resorts creates experiences for intimate cultural interactions for guests with the people, cultures and natural beauty of each destination, at the same time, show dedication to being responsible members of the host communities and treading lightly on the environment.

Alila Diwa Goa as the first Alila in India takes pride in supporting sustainable tourism and reducing carbon footprint by the use of biodegradable material. The resort takes great care in minimizing its environmental impact by using primarily local materials and working with the landscape to preserve indigenous ecosystems.

Measures such as the use of Areca leaf plates and bowls for outdoor catering events helps reduce plastic waste. These plates and bowls are made using naturally fallen palm leaves. This is an eco-friendly option over using other cutlery as there is no water wastage for washing cutlery and is 100% biodegradable and compostable.

Alila Diwa Goa continues to strive to uphold its commitment towards sustainability. Since February 2018 Alila Diwa Goa has discontinued serving straws with beverages in support of the #NoPlasticStraws campaign. In the case where guest is requesting for straw, the resort will give straws that are made by using biodegradable plastic that decompose naturally in a matter of just 18 months compared to 400 years for normal plastics.

Through an ongoing commitment towards sustainable development, Alila Diwa Goa has accomplished many initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint and voiced its firm commitment to respecting and protecting the environment. This year the resort is in the process of adopting EarthCheck operating standards, integrating the natural, physical and cultural elements of the environments.
