It was with great pride on Saturday last (17th June) that Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort Villages and Spa were awarded eco-burner’s very first Carbon Savings Certificate.
Beaches Turks and Caicos are the first recipient of this carbon saving award for their dedication to saving the environment and making a difference for future generations. The resort, located on the beautiful islands of Turk and Caicos have been using eco-burner for the last two years, changing from traditional chemical chafing fuel methods to eco-burner’s safer, cleaner and greener solution. In this time they have made the colossal saving of 79 tons of Carbon Emissions saving the same amount of carbon emissions as created by running 128 lightbulbs for 60 days a piece, driving 17 typical, passenger cars for an entire year or 205 homes recycling all of their aluminium cans, glass bottles, plastic, cardboard and newspapers for a year!
On the day Colin Watson, Executive Chef was quick to praise the resort’s dedication to making an effort to be more environmentally aware saying they were “committed to the community, the environment and improving the guest experience wherever they can”. He continued: “it is great to give back to the environment and to save on emissions” . This immense saving is a testament to the hard work and dedication shown by all of Beaches Turks and Caicos’ staff to make the resort a more environmentally friendly destination and Mr Watson would “100% recommend eco-burner” to other hotels and resorts looking to make the move to a cleaner and greener way of operating.

Ciaran Doyle, CCO of eco-burner celebrated Beaches Turks and Caicos’ continued savings, commenting that eco-burner’s “whole Caribbean business started from here when Sandals were brave enough to take on this new environmentally friendly alternative to chafing fuel”. This step into the unknown has paid off many fold with eco-burner having been rolled out across the entire Sandals’ Beaches product line Caribbean wide and continuing the great work towards being an ever greener and more sustainable organisation. Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort Villages and Spa’ amazing savings highlights that a small change to the operation can make be of significant benefit to the environment and as the relationship between eco-burner and Sandals / Beaches continues to strengthen the savings will continue to grow!
