●    Using the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle method to address waste management
●    Minimising the production of waste with the support of suppliers and stakeholders
●    Including social and environmental initiatives for community development
●    Providing healthy meals at the restaurant
●    Implementing programmes to reduce the carbon footprint of the hotel
●    Conserving natural ecosystems and habitats surrounding the property
●    Providing environmental awareness training
●    Employing individuals from the community to promote economic and social growth

Natural beauty at Jumby Bay Island

The luxurious Jumby Bay Island is wholly committed to its sustainability efforts. In fact, it's carried out several initiatives in order to preserve the environment and the indigenous species around it. This includes the Hawksbill turtle, the White Egret and the Persian black-headed sheep.

Its recycling programme has made them the largest recycler of bottles and cans in Antigua. It also makes plenty of extra efforts to reuse all byproducts of island life. Sewage water is purified and stored in a central tank for plant irrigation. Also, garden cuttings are reused for compositing. 

The Hawksbill Turtle Project is the longest-running funded project of its kind. The programme is the study of endangered species and ensures their survival and recovery.

The stunning beaches are a haven for nesting Hawksbill looking for isolation on this secluded private island. This is why projects like this are so important.

There is also a wildlife sanctuary where the black-headed Persian sheep are free to roam and graze on over 300 acres of natural land. The waterfowl sanctuary is also here, where you can find a rare mix of tropical birds like whistling ducks, hummingbirds and Blue Pelicans.

Going green at Carlisle Bay

When staying at the beautiful Carlisle Bay, it is all about sustainability and style rolled into one. The resort is dedicated to going green and has been for some time. In fact, it banned plastic bags way before many of the other Caribbean countries did.

One of the latest initiatives is banning Styrofoam. It doesn't use it in any resort facilities. Single-use plastics are also entirely banned and all takeaway food for the beach is given in biodegradable containers.

Environmental practices are essential to the resort, just as important as the cosmopolitan service style and luxury ambience. Whilst the 82-suite resort is chic and elevated; it is still completely eco-friendly.
