SUSTAINABILITY POLICY

The KOHO | Eco Hotels | Gili Islands
The KOHO offers truly sustainable solutions that benefit both the environment and the local communities. We exercise our commitment to sustainability through the policies, procedures, and programs at our hotels. Join us in our journey towards a more sustainable future, and a more beautiful world.

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS

The KOHO is committed to reducing plastic waste and  using products that are locally sourced & environmentally friendly.

Minimising Plastic Use

 

25 million tonnes of single-use plastics are poured into our oceans each year, damaging its natural beauty and killing marine life.

 

Koho aims to minimize this by replacing plastic items used in our hotels with more eco-friendly alternatives, provided only upon request so as to reduce waste.

 

Solutions  include:

» Using glass bottles instead of plastic bottles

» Bamboo toothbrushes

» Reusable straws and cups

» Reusable trash bags

Using Green Products
 

By buying organic and eco-friendly, we ensure that the products used in our hotels are safe for the environment, from production until disposal.  Where possible, we ensure that our products are locally sourced so as to reduce our carbon footprint and support the local economy.
 

The KOHO uses:

95% Organic toiletries

Eco-friendly cleaning products
