Reducing waste, reusing where possible, and ultimately sending zero waste to landfill.
Singita Lodges and urban offices are committed to operating in a way that reduces waste to landfill. These include waste reduction initiatives and recycling programs. Much of our recycling goes to community-run businesses, which in turn generates income for communities surrounding our reserves. A successful group-wide project practically eliminated the use of plastic bottled water from our operations, saving thousands of bottles from entering the waste stream. Guests are provided with stainless steel or glass bottles which are filled from our in-house water filtering and bottling systems. We continue to focus on reducing as much other single-use plastics from the lodge operations as possible.
Installation of water bottling plants reduced plastic bottled water by 95%, thus saving thousands of plastic bottles from entering the waste streamZero
