Hmm…As a go green 💚supporter, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 wishes this ecotourism resort 💚🌳🌳🏡🏘🏡 can consider to set up some water 💊💧 dispensers within its resort compound 💚🌳🌳🏡🏘🏡 & then prepare the glass water bottles/ jugs/ flasks in hotel rooms, instead of plastic bottled water 💊💧 for all its guests 👫👭👬 This definitely will reduce ⬇ lots of the plastic usage
