As part of our constant focus to embrace nature and community with our business practices, Flameback Eco Lodge is committed in its continuous contribution made to the environment and the community it is integrated in. As such, we are humbled to contribute $ 1.00 from every rooming night to the hotel’s Eco & Social development fund which is in turn donated to the preservation and well-being of the Environment, Community of Weerwila and the hotel employees.
A sustainable footprint into eco conservation
At Flameback Eco Lodge, we have embraced a skillful multi-discipline, framework of environmental strategies aimed at making changes and improvements that benefit the environment from the onset with subtle thought put into the architecture, use of natural resources and waste disposal. We are focused on integrating environmental sustainability in our business practices, including our day to day operations and procurement. Synonymous with our immaculate eco entwined comforts, we ensured the use of environmentally friendly, biodegradable materials in our constructions powered by energy conserving LED lighting and natural lighting, along with a waste water water-treatment plant re- inventing and providing back to mother nature.
Following from the famous quote – ‘We borrow from nature the space upon we build – Flmaback Eco Lodge was built ‘in harmony’ with nature preserving the trees and shrubs within the land. Natural boulders have been used as the foundation for the lodges with steel and wood used for the building structures and flames to eliminate minimal use of cement and other harmful materials to the environment.
We work collaboratively with local communities and accredited state authorities to minimise environmental issues within the area assisting in maintaining a clean environment in preserving the banks of the Weerawila lake.
Solid Waste Management is an important aspect of environmental responsibility where we adhere by our ethos of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to manage waste efficiently. We considerately segregate our solid waste in colour coded bins that are used for storing the separated waste whilst the food waste or wet waste is decomposed in the hotel premises.
We have in place a well constructed sewage treatment plant which runs across the 7 days of the week to ensure that waste-water is treated so that it can be reused for gardening – thereby reducing the consumption of fresh water.
In our eco friendly grandeur and poise, we incessantly cooperate with our suppliers as part of our overall environmental strategy. Our focus in supply chain engagement is the development of innovative products and programs to deliver superior performance and meet our sustainability goals whilst guaranteeing the sourcing of environmentally preferred products. Thus, plastic products are not used for any guest or housekeeping amenities, hence using recycled paper for all housekeeping amenities and glass bottles for guest water consumption.
The hotel’s menus, stationary and ceramic ware are all locally made with wood, recycled material and clay.
We at Flameback also take pride in maintaining a state of the art organic cultivation within our lively green premises, which utilizes only natural pesticides and fertilizers, whilst we have also increased local and organic dining options by partnering with local farmers, growers and seafood purveyors.
