Summer Island Maldives discontinues use of plastic straws

Summer Island Maldives has announced its decision to discontinue the use of plastic drinking straws.

As part of the decision made to mark World Oceans Day on June 8, the resort will discontinue the use of single-use, plastic drinking straws with immediate effect. Guests will instead be served drinks without any straws; if they request for a straw, paper straws will be used instead of plastic.

The switch away from plastic straws is Summer Island’s latest initiative to lighten its environmental impact.

In March 2015, Summer Island introduced glass bottles to phase out single use plastic water bottles. Guests are now offered bottled water in reusable glass bottles, and the water is produced at the island’s own drinking water facility. Summer Island uses solar power to produce hot water and will continue to use renewable energy for the island.

Summer Island, a four-star resort located in North Male Atoll, is one of the country’s first resorts, and remains wholly Maldivian owned. It was recently refurbished, and now boasts fresh and zesty rooms, award-winning restaurants, a rustic beach bar, a dive school, and a spa offering a range of wellness treatments and massages.
