It bursts with exotic flora and fauna, and is surrounded by a coral shelf that is alive with varied and colorful marine life. Busuanga Bay Lodge offers 41 units in total including 38 rooms and 3 private, two-bedroom villas.
The Waste Management Program was introduced to improve our sustainability efforts with respect to waste management
|Increase diversion of waste from landfill
|Increase the use of product reuse and take-back initiatives
The resort also reduces consumption of water, which otherwise have to be produced through energy-intensive desalination processes or sourced in the region’s water sources.
Solid wastes go through strict segregation before reaching the resort’s full cycle materials recovery facility (MRF). The MRF receives recyclable and organic wastes from the resorts and is looked after by the POMEC Department. After segregation, the recyclable waste is stored in holding bins for pick-up by a local junk shop dealer for recycling, while the organic waste is composted onsite and later packed for use in the resort gardens or organic farm. Recognizing the negative impact of using non-recyclable wastes, BBL Resorts implemented a refillable drinking water system this year (2016) to try to eliminate the purchase of plastic bottled waters.
