The Whitsundays Daydream Island Resort and Spa has achieved an Eco-Friendly STAR Accreditation through AAA Tourism.
The Eco-Friendly STAR Accreditation recognises the lengths Daydream Island Resort and Spa goes to in order to reduce its impact on the environment.
Daydream Island’s chief executive officer Phil Casey said the resort is proud to be recognised for their environmental sustainability.
“Daydream Island has always striven to minimise its impact on the environment,” he said.
“The Resort’s close proximity to The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park means our staff are always mindful of their impact on the environment. We also encourage guests to be environmentally conscious while staying at the Resort.
“We send all of our cooking oils off island to be reused as a bio-fuel in lieu of diesel, conserve water wherever possible by utilising water reducing taps and encourage guests to make a conscious decision with the laundering of their linen and towels.”
Daydream Island has also moved over to use of more energy efficient lighting and encourages all staff and guests to recycle wherever possible.
Daydream’s signature Rejuvenation Spa is at the forefront in water conservation using state-of-the-art equipment which is highly efficient in water use.
The Eco-Friendly STAR logo provides guests with the reassurance that they are staying at an environmentally friendly property.
AAA Tourism was established in 1999 as the national tourism body of the Australian Automobile Associations.
