The journey towards zero waste has been a long one that we at The Sands at Nomad started in 2005 with the removal of all plastic water bottles from use at the hotel, glass (refillable) bottles were used and guests are encouraged to order water carafes instead. This was the beginning.. 14 years ago!
Since then we have tried to find ways to re-use, recycle or up-cycle the ‘waste’ that we produce.. and part of the reason for this blog is to record our progress in a hope that others can find it useful and maybe even look to do the same. ‘Zero’ waste is a dream.. but ‘towards’ zero waste is a necessity if we are to leave a living world for the future generations.
