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.

North Island in the Seychelles

Is there anything more luxurious than a private island? Yes, actually — one that’s ecologically mindful! North Island in the Seychelles is a real-life Eden, and with only 11 villas, guests have the best of both worlds: privacy in lush, untouched nature and sumptuous amenities like otherworldly private dining with world-class chefs and transportive spa experiences. North Island is an entirely plastic-free island, having banned any and all plastic products, in addition to strict waste management practices like extensive recycling, grey water systems and its own sustainable water bottling plant. Volunteers and resident environmentalists comb the island daily to keep it pristine, the efforts of which have led to increased numbers of turtles nesting on the island.
