TRASH TO TREA­SURE

Six Senses is go­ing even greener with the re­cent launch of Earth Lab ( sixsenses.com), cre­ated to track and pro­mote in-house sus­tain­abil­ity ef­forts across all its prop­er­ties world­wide. Here, guests can join work­shops to learn sim­ple ways to live more sus­tain­ably and take a closer look at the brand’s im­pres­sive range of ini­tia­tives: har­ness­ing re­new­able en­ergy from biomass and so­lar power, de­vel­op­ing nat­u­ral in­sec­ti­cides and clean­ing so­lu­tions to re­place harm­ful chem­i­cal agents, and much more. At Earth Lab, bees are kept to pol­li­nate lo­cal crops and pro­duce honey for re­sort restau­rants—which source their fruit and veg­eta­bles from in­house or­ganic gar­dens—while oils are ex­tracted from plants for spa treat­ments. Six Senses’ zero-waste pol­icy is also a ma­jor talk­ing point, with land­scap­ing waste fed to milk-pro­duc­ing goats, and in places where re­cy­cling is not avail­able, crushed glass is reused in flower pots, paving stones, and light fix­tures. For an un­con­ven­tional sou­venir, Earth Lab’s seed bank al­lows you to take sam­ples and grow or­ganic pro­duce back home—a process made eas­ier with its DIY videos on Youtube.
