Reducing the amount of plastic bottles is one of the actions we take to reduce the carbon footprints, and eventually try to achieve CO2 nutural in near future.
At Iriomote Hotel, we have reduced the amount of single-use plastic products and plastic bottles. Now we take further steps toward sustainability by completely eliminating plastic bottles - even the ones in vending machines and shops. Instead, we install filtered water dispensers, refillable bottles, and water pitchers for guests. In addition, we stop providing single-use plastic ammenities such as tooshbrush and rayzor, and ask guests to bring their own, thus offsetting the carbon footprint of their travel. At the shop, we offer eco-friendly products and ammenities for the guests to purchase.
