Baan Jasmines small contribution to supporting sustainability
& community on koh samui island
Linen and towels
We like to preserve water on the island because it is in short supply being a small tropical island. Our housekeeper changes bed linen, pool and beach towels weekly. If guests would like their housekeeper to visit more often please let us know.
We conserve this from monsoon rains by feeding it from the guttering back into our water tank. We had a filter fitted to our tank last year so the water can be used by the villa.
salt chlorination swimming pool
We installed this new system in 2018 and as a result we are now using less island water to top up our beautiful Bali stone swimming pool. The salt chlorination system is kinder to the skin and also the environment.
sunscreen in the sea
We advise guests to wear rash tops and choose sunscreen which does not harm coral when snorkelling. Please ask us for more information.
beach collection bin painting
Baan Jasmine sponsored the painting of a beach plastic collection bin in 2018. A wonderful project for any guests with artistic talent to get involved with. Please ask us if your interested and donate a few hours or a couple of days of your time to help reduce plastic in the south china sea.
king of bread
We purchase our bakery products from this bakery close to the villa. This in turn supports local business and reduces packaging and car/bike emissions from driving to larger supermarkets.
Chiang Mai Elephant coffee
We purchase large bags of filter coffee to decant into our containers thus reduce packaging and waste. This coffee is also produced sustainably in Chiang Mai at the Elephant Nature Reserve.
coconut soap, body lotion. citronella & sleep spray
We have now sourced products for the villa made on the island from virgin coconuts and mountain rain water! They smell & feel divine. Let us know if you would like to purchase any to take home.
koh samui nathon Hospital childrens’ ward
We have provided old linen and towels to be used on the childrens’ ward. Our villa management maintenance team provide significant voluntary support to Nathon Childrens’ hospital.
old linen, towels & unused coconut soap
Donated to local workers from Thailand & Myanmar in need of support. Please let us know if you have any clothing, shoes, toiletries, books or games you would like to donate they will be well received.
