Coinciding with the World Environmental Day, Anantaya Resorts & Spas of LAUGFS Leisure launched a special initiative to minimise the use of one-time plastic products at its resorts in Chilaw and Passikudah. As a signatory to the World Tourism Organisation’s (UNWTO) Responsible Tourism Initiative, which has set Sustainable Development Goals for Responsible Tourism by 2030, LAUGFS Leisure operates with a strong commitment to promote sustainable tourism through its Anantaya chain of luxury resorts.

“As a responsible hospitality brand in Sri Lanka, we launched this initiative with the aim to reduce the use of one-time-use plastics, such as plastic straws, bottles and cups, in order to promote responsible waste management in our resorts, while encouraging our guests to be conscious of their environmental footprint. We hope to take this initiative to the community and across the LAUGFS group in the future,” commented LAUGFS Leisure Director/Chief Executive Officer Roshan R. Perera. 

“We are delighted to launch this project to minimise the usage of plastic, which will be another key initiative to support the LAUGFS group’s commitment to create zero-plastic zones. The Resort Managers are working closely with our resort staff, who will be championing this initiative to create further awareness. This will also be a key focus area in the training calendar for our colleagues,” commented LAUGFS Leisure Training Manager Kasun de Silva.

The star class Anantaya Resorts are an expanding portfolio of resorts owned and operated by LAUGFS Leisure, with a third property in Wadduwa set to commence construction. LAUGFS Leisure has been recognised with numerous awards for its commitment to excellence, including the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence in 2018, The Country Award for Luxury Conference Hotel and Luxury Event Hotel in 2017 by Anantaya – Chilaw and the Country Award for Luxury Spa Resort & Best luxury Beach Resort in Sri Lanka by Anantaya – Passikudah.
