In order to better protect the earth, reduce carbon footprint and support sustainable and responsible tourism, The Residence Bintan has set about unique ways to nurture and care for its surroundings as well as for social upliftment of the community. The Earth Basket is more than an initiative, it is a transformative experience that brings one closer to nature by indulging in sustainable development and earth-friendly agriculture.
The vision behind this initiative goes beyond the boundaries of food and agriculture but also has naturally steeped into the area of animal feeding and compost making, using natural ingredients. The resort’s very own organic farm boasting over thirty different types of herbs and vegetables from simple basil leaves to freshly picked water spinach, corn or eggplants. The food is 100% organic and is absolutely fresh, without any use of any chemical fertilizers.
The ways that the resorts are looking to transform their surroundings naturally will gradually focus on socially uplifting the nearby villages by training the locals how to grow their fruits and vegetables and also create their own compost.
Looking at a post Covid-19 world where the new norm linked with travel will derive from being more responsible, sustainable and conscious towards the environment, the hotel is looking forward to creating a safe and stronger future.
