Secret Bay Introduces Reusable Glass Bottles to Further Eco-Efforts
As Dominica leads the crusade against single-use plastic, establishing a nationwide ban on plastic and styrofoam food storage containers, utensils and shopping bags—effective January 2019—Secret Bay has gone one step further by eliminating the use of plastic water bottles on property. Amid our clifftop sanctuary, we are wholly committed to offering an eco-conscious resort experience at its most ethically luxurious.
Secret Bay’s Reusable Glass Bottles
With the elimination of all single-use plastics on Dominica, Secret Bay introduced reusable borosilicate glass bottles for guests with an under-sink Culligan water filtration system in each villa. Whether relaxing by the villa plunge pool or heading out for a day of adventure, guests can always count on a purified, convenient source of water—all while benefiting the natural environment.
Additional Sustainability Efforts
Secret Bay’s sustainability efforts go far beyond just introducing reusable glass bottles. Here, Executive Chef Grant Lynott uses wild herbs that grow across the island in his fresh, locally-sourced dishes at Zing Zing restaurant. The kitchen and landscaping teams always recycle and compost the waste and trimmings from the development on a daily basis, with guests encouraged to participate in waste separation while in-villa. Secret Bay has also instigated several Environmental Impact Assessments and has taken great care to establish an effective drainage system on the property with a drip irrigation system to reuse wastewater.
Recently earning a Green Globe Certification—one of the highest standards for sustainability worldwide—our innovative guest experience is designed to align with Dominica’s renowned sustainability efforts and preserve the cherished land that we call home.
