Environment initiatives at MLH

14 July, 2019

Taking steps to initiate green practice and policy, the Mount Lavinia Hotel took responsible action on both World Ocean and World Environment days in an effort to support this year’s theme ‘NO to Air Pollution’. The hotel switched off their main boiler on World Environment Day (Jun 5,) for three hours in an effort to reduce its carbon footprint. Furthermore following last year’s theme, the hotel took a stand against plastic by eradicating plastic straws and embracing recyclable paper straws. Gradually trying to adapt to a paperless way of doing business, the hotel decided to incorporate QR codes on to its employees’ business cards to reduce its paper consumption.

With the help of the Mount Lavinia Rotary Club, Wellawatta Rotaract Club and the S. Thomas’ College Interact Club the hotel cleaned and cleared all forms of rubbish on the beach around the hotel for World Ocean Day (Jun 8).
