Babel guesthouse is located around Wat Bo, Siem Reap, the Travelers’ Choice Award-winning guesthouse from popular travel website Trip Advisor last year. This is especially recommended among environmentalists and vegetarians.
It founded in 2008 by Simen Julner and his wife Katrine Solhaug, Babel Guesthouse always surprises guests with its environmentally friendly materials. Recycled and traditional tools made from nature by a community of local artisans.
Brown lanterns, forks, chopsticks, wooden spoons, straws, straws, tea straws, hand-woven baskets, soap and other utensils. All other appliances are products that go back to the days before plastics were all over the place.
The story behind the disposal of plastic waste at the Babel Guesthouse was told by Katrine: Many activities to contribute to reducing the use of plastic and waste management. We use bamboo straws in the canteen, we use bins that are easy to break or grind from Cleanbodia instead of plastic using in the bedroom.
“We do not sell drinking water with plastic or plastic bottles, but we have other tool to use water for drinking. Even kitchen waste is unexpectedly recycled into renewable energy.
“The cooking oil left over from cooking we give to Naga Earth to extract fuel and we will buy that fuel back and use it with our generator.”
By actively pursuing a project to combat plastic pollution, innkeepers strive to increase accountability the need of tourism and hospitality to the environment.
“We want tourists to change their the use of plastic habits,” she insisted. Use environmentally friendly products instead, as there are many options for you to reduce the use of plastic when traveling and daily use. All we have to do is start thinking differently and start adjusting our habits. ”
