The Fern Residency eyes to become carbon neutral

  • 14 December 2018

The Fern Residency, Mumbai is all set to become zero carbon footprint hotel. “The Fern Residency, Mumbai is doing its level best to reduce its carbon footprint and has adopted a number of environment friendly practices to ensure that it reaches its ultimate goal of becoming a zero carbon footprint hotel,” Raj Shetty, General Manager of the hotel said.

One of the foremost measures adopted by the hotel is setting up a bottling plant. The hotel has completely eliminated the use of packaged water and is providing water in glass bottles in the rooms as well as restaurant. Water is purified from the ionizing machine set up in the plant. The hotel has identified a few core issues and has been endeavouring hard to achieve success in these core areas of environment sustainability.

According to Shetty, the issue of plastic usage is one of the grave concerns and one that clearly requires global commitment and collaborative action. Various other measures taken up by the hotel includes; Banning the use of disposable or single-use plastics like plastic water bottles, straws etc; Replacing plastic bags with paper bags and plastic cutlery with wooden cutlery, for take-away; Changing biodegradable plastic containers with more eco-friendly options like containers made of corn starch or sugarcane; Replacing plastics straws and stirrers with steel and paper straws and wooden stirrers; Replacing garbage bags with biodegradable garbage bags; Utilizing old newspapers to make paper bags
