Updated information: We have reduced our single-use plastic in our lodges, removing the kitchen welcome pack, bathroom toiletries, and ducks. Here at Darwin Escapes, we are always looking at our carbon footprint and ways we can ethically and realistically increase our sustainability, and one of these ways is reducing the above, along with other non-biodegradable materials, including suitcases, where we are able.
