One year ago we posted a little blog article about how Every Bit Counts, and since then nothing has changed except perhaps, that the importance of conscientious living has become more important than ever before.
At Mayan Princess Hotel we still believe that every little bit you can do for the environment is a positive step in the right direction. We are a green-inspired hotel for a reason: because we have an eco-friendly conscience and we want for others to share this passion for our world. Our staff use biodegradable cleaning liquids and soaps, each made from natural, organic ingredients, and we have a number of green initiatives in place.
And why do we do this? Why is the environment so important to us? Well, we live right on the ocean. The Mayan Princess Hotel is an oceanfront hotel, and we rely on that ocean for everything from food to income through fishing, tours, and watersports. The very idea of dumping chemicals and wastes into these waters we so frequently swim, snorkel, and dive in is unthinkable.
Imagine what the Belize Barrier Reef will look like in a few years if the ocean’s acidity levels continue to rise. These systems that have taken millions of years to evolve and many thousands of years to grow could be gone within our lifetime if we don’t actively change our ways to become more sustainable, more green.
These are some of the most spectacular wonders of the ocean world, and they need each of us to help protect them.
Every bit still counts. Every bit we can do to protect our land, our health, our oceans, will always count.
And if we each do our part, the generations that follow will continue to be able to enjoy the beauty and wonder of our oceans and of Ambergris Caye.
