Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo is at the forefront of the eco-friendly movement by eliminating single-use bottled water from its guest rooms and instituting reusable carafes as a standard amenity beginning in July.

Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo has partnered with Crisel Farms, a local organic farm, to combat food waste circularly. Utilizing bokashi composting techniques, the hotel converts food refuse into nutrient-rich compost, significantly reducing its contribution to landfills. In addition, as part of this circular business model, the hotel repurchases crops from Crisel Farms to use in its restaurants, closing the food supply chain’s loop and promoting sustainable agricultural practices.

These new initiatives reaffirm our dedication to preserving the environment and assisting the local community. By eliminating single-use water bottles and adopting reusable carafes and water stations with UV filtration, we hope to reduce plastic waste significantly. Moreover, our partnerships with local farms demonstrate our commitment to a circular business model in which we actively reduce food waste and promote sustainable agriculture. Ogie Manuel, the general manager of Park Inn by Radisson Iloilo, stated as much.
