Picture Feature(d): Shangri-La’s Mactan Island Resort & Spa

Excerpt from Eco Resorts by Monica De Leon for SEAIR InFlight June-July 2010

The resort uses only energy-saving light bulbs, has installed water restrictors to conserve water, has sewage treatment facilities, uses biodegradable cleaning materials, and uses less harmful refrigerants in the kitchen’s refrigerators and chillers. The resort also invested in a desalination plant that allows brine water to go back to the sea, while converting salt-free water to a potable one. Employees segregate waste, separating recyclables, join regular coastal and dive cleanups and coral recovery programs, and engage in the “Bike to work” program.”
