Goes to Mother and Child Foundation
It’s time to give back to the world that gives us everything. Responsible tourism is at the heart of everything we do and all that matters is what we can do in the best way possible.
Goes to Mother and Child Foundation
Mother and Child Foundation is a humble abode for disadvantaged mothers and children seeking a place of love and warmth. Established in 2000, the charitable institution strives towards building a nurturing environment where education, medical care, and quality living are accessible to all.
SpiceTree is actively involved in initiatives that will transform the livelihoods of people and communities. Every time you stay at SpiceTree, you are shaping the lives of many. We also provide a receipt as part of acknowledging your contribution to this initiative.
Planted To Date
We’re planting 100,000 trees by 2027
At SpiceTree, we help people reconnect with nature to heal and discover their true self. Booking at SpiceTree involves active participation in our well-planned green initiatives to breathe life into vast stretches of land that once was green.
Every time you book at SpiceTree, you are planting two trees. We have adopted the Miyawaki method and its strategies to restore natural forests and grasslands. Till date, our guests have successfully planted 45,000 trees and counting. We are planning to plant a total of 1 lakh trees by 2027.
Used For Last Month’s Electricity Needs
We’re planning to get it to 60% by 2025
As part of reducing the carbon footprint dramatically, we have powered the resort by harnessing Solar energy. At SpiceTree, we believe that such deliberate efforts can motivate our guests and the local communities to gradually switch to renewable energy sources for their daily needs.
On average, 25% of the total energy requirements in the resort are met using solar energy. Our water heating system uses a combination of solar and gas, not the conventional storage calorifier. In view of climate change, we are planning strategies that will help achieve energy independence in the near future. We are planning to ramp up utilization by 60% within 3-4 years.
Working towards achieving 100% in near future
From our garden to your plate- that’s the freshness you taste in every bite of your meal. At SpiceTree, we promote a culture of wholesome eating to throw light on the importance of using organic ingredients in your daily diet.
We are 50% self-sufficient- our kitchen uses fresh, organic ingredients grown in our land. Nestled in the lush green hills of Munnar, our farm gives 100% organic produce consisting of a wide range of fruits, vegetables, and spices, that are cultivated using natural seeds and fertilizers. Incase of shortage, we source the products from the local farmers who follow organic means of cultivation. Our goal is to become 100% self-sufficient in the near future.
As an ecologically sensitive area, we have taken all the initiatives to ensure that the sanctity of the land is fully respected.
SpiceTree is environmentally sustainable- from eliminating plastics to using renewable energy sources, we ensure that our way of tourism helps communities and nature to co-exist.
What we eat plays a significant role in how we perceive the world around us. With sustainable dining practices, we have made a conscious decision to make the world not just a better place to live in, but a better place to eat-in, too.
We strictly follow a zero-waste approach and encourage our staff and guests to adopt practices that can help reduce environmental impact and conserve natural resources.
As part of our environmentally friendly sentiments, G-Way farms, our parent company, has acquired non-agricultural land in the periphery of the Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary. The Afforestation Project was carefully implemented by employing the Miyawaki method and its strategies which are extremely effective in developing forests on small landholdings. Forests developed using this practice tend to flourish in no time and require little to no maintenance.
Using the Miyawaki method, we are accelerating the rate at which our plantation will grow by deploying the following steps-
This process has completed one year since it’s conception. Currently, we are all set for the rains to stimulate the plantation drive. We strongly believe that such initiatives inspire the new generation to take up and lead similar projects that can help revive forests.
At SpiceTree, we strongly believe in helping sustain a healthy environment where both people and nature can thrive. By respecting the sentiments of the community that surrounds us,- the local people, their culture, and values- we serve them in ways that would help alleviate poverty. We entertain our guests to connect with the local people and share knowledge on skills or techniques that will help preserve their own environment and foster community development.
How do we achieve this?
We train our staff, customers, stakeholders and suppliers to-
We have zero-tolerance for noise pollution, to help sustain the pristine nature of the environment. You will be surrounded only by the harmonious sound of nature- the chirping of the birds, the wind in the trees, and the rustling of leaves. We say an emphatic ‘NO’ to DJs and dance parties.
