The online dictionary says sustainability is:
‘The ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level’.
The Sands at Nomad Thinking Green initiative has been set up to showcase to anyone interested some ideas about sustainability and some ways in which a Hotel, Dive Center and a Restaurant can reduce their impact on their environments, both social and natural.

A glass bottle wall
All plastic water bottles have been removed from use, candles in the restaurant are LED and rechargeable so removing the use of paraffin based candles, empty glass bottles from the restaurant and hotel are all stored and either refilled for use again used as drinking glasses, art pieces or building bricks. Old diving wet suits have been cleaned, cut and reused into drip mats and computer bags, 80% of guest rooms use the sun’s renewable energy to heat water, all light bulbs are LED low watt bulbs, water points have been created for local wildlife, bathroom products are locally sourced and biodegradable, it holds local farmers markets, it is a ‘fumigation free’ property and it has it’s own ‘The Sands at Nomad’ APP which is downloadable for free so as to try to reduce the amount of paper, printing and laminating use.
