We at sahroo believe that self-love should be luxurious as often as it can be. We also believe that self-love and luxury should be as eco-friendly as it can be. In honoring ourselves in an ecologically mindful way, we are honoring Mother Nature by extension. This idea is at the very heart of sahroo: Not only do we want to make luxurious garments that make brides feel like the goddesses they are, but we want to do so in a way that leaves the smallest carbon footprint possible.
In that vein, let’s talk about travel. Travel can be a daunting activity to make green when it’s easy to be mindful of our contributions to the environment when we’re working those ideals into our daily routines. Luckily for us, a growing number of resorts are adopting green practices that give back to the breathtaking nature around them, taking the eco-guilt out of travel.
Our Founder and Creative Director Sarah Abbasi compiled a few of the ecologically mindful resorts she admires, and we know you’ll swoon over them like we did.
Jumeirah Vittavelli, set smackdab in the middle of the idyllic Maldives, is devoted to protecting the environment that their guests travel from far-flung reaches of the earth to enjoy. The resort is certified by Green Globe in recognition of its sustainable operation and management. Everything, from choosing produce and products from local suppliers, to running its own in-house water re-bottling and recycling plant, is considered with Mother Nature in mind, so when you’re sitting with your legs dangling into the crystalline blue waters of the ocean, you’ll know that the fish around your ankles approve of your choice of lodging!
