Lomani and Gateway to ban plastic shopping bags

Raffe Hotels and Resorts is pleased to announce that Lomani Island Resort and Fiji Gateway Hotel will be banning plastic shopping bags across both hotels from 1 April 2019. Lomani Island Resort is the leading 4-star adults only Resort in the Mamanuca Islands and Fiji Gateway Hotel is a 3.5-star transit hotel located directly across from Nadi International Airport.

This move follows Plantation Island Resort banning plastic shopping bags in October 2017. Like Plantation Island Resort, Lomani Island Resort will also provide each guest with a re-usable shopping bag to use during their holiday and each Lomani staff member will receive a re-usable shopping bag to use while they are working on Malolo Lailai Island.

“This is another key milestone in our goal to become a more environmentally friendly business” says Akshay Singh, Director of Sales, Marketing and Strategic Development for Raffe Hotels & Resorts. “The amount of plastic being found in our oceans is alarming and we can no longer be contributing to this global problem. We must show leadership in the community we live in and the environment we prosper under.”

All three Raffe Hotels & Resorts properties also banned plastic straws on 10th October 2018, offering paper straws on request only.
