Hmm…As a go green πŸ’šsupporter, SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» wishes this ecotourism resort πŸ’šπŸŒ³πŸŒ³πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ‘ can consider to set up some water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ dispensers within its resort compound πŸ’šπŸŒ³πŸŒ³πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ‘ & then prepare the glass water bottles/ jugs/ flasks in hotel rooms, instead of plastic bottled water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ for all its guests πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ This definitely will reduce ⬇️ lots of the plastic usage
