Using waste and recycling items generated in the department, they have created new functions and decorative items.
Our Culinary and Stewarding team has developed a Chef's Garden from recycled cans and plastic bottles to grow organic herbs such as bay leaf, rosemary, thyme, cherry tomato, and even corn. Recycling has always been the main focus of the Housekeeping Department, the Laundry team never throw away the discarded linen, instead transformed them into new functions, such as pillowcases, laundry bags and floor mops etc. - the creative ways to save additional expenses. The Engineering team has won the competition with their sustainability project, both creative and functional products. Who would have known that we could come up with an amazing replica of top tourist spots in the city from waste palettes, and from an electrical waste drum, we could come up with functional tables and chairs.
