On June 5, 2018, Meeru Island Resort & Spa celebrated World Environment Day with an educational and insightful Back-of-House Tour, which included our very own Meeru Garden and Greenhouse, as well as the Fresh Water and Water Bottling Plants. Meeru continues to actively show support of an environmentally sustainable future for the Maldives through a daily commitment towards creating awareness.
Since the day began in 1972, people from around the world hosted a number of events in support of more positive environmental action, from connecting with nature to reducing carbon footprints and action against wildlife crime. Meeru has been an avid participant of World Environment Day over the years, but also, in each and every way to conserve the pristine nature of the Maldives and protect our unique marine life.
Closely related to a sustainable environment for the Maldives, is preserving and protecting our ocean. With 26 atolls covering 90 000 square kilometers of the Indian Ocean and over 2000 species of tropical fish residing in the Maldives’ warm, crystal clear waters, protecting our Ocean is just as important.
For World Oceans Day on June 8, 2018, Meeru hosted a lagoon cleaning activity together with the Euro-Divers team, where staff and guests joined in an effort to clear out the pristine lagoon of any remaining debris, which is a daily action towards maintaining our beautiful marine ecology.
Both occasions where held under the theme “Beat Plastic Pollution”, to coincide with theme from Earth Day on April 22. The theme recognizes the effects of plastic pollution on our environment, wildlife, marine ecology and the planet as a whole, with billions of people building awareness and taking action towards a plastic-free future.
