What change do you want to see in this world? As they always say, start with yourself first. This is how Lub d Cambodia Siem Reap began engaging in several initiatives to sort out the over-use of plastic materials and roll out some actions to create a better environment for all of us in a long run. ☘️

It began with the Plastic Free July initiative from Plastic Free SEA where both Lub d Cambodia Siem Reap and The Little Red Fox Bar & Cafe at Lub d found the huge opportunity to participate and contribute to the community.

Some of the “NO Plastic” initiatives taken:

• Only glass bottles are used in Lub d Siem Reap Private Rooms. One of the key concepts here is to stop small wastes from adding up over a period of time. For now we’ve saved over hundred thousands of plastic bottles going into the ocean!

• All takeaway food packaging is bio-degradable.

• There are no plastic straws here – only metal or paper straws for guests.

Metal straws are the best!

• After cooking, our used cooking oil is donated to Naga Earth, the supplier that creates positive changes in Cambodia through creative environmental projects.

• We work with Refill Not Landfill with our Lub d branded bottles, for people to carry around instead of using plastic bottles!

• Takeaway plastic bags are made from cassava plants from Cleanbodia

• Even our takeaway coffee carry holders are made from fabric material!

• Upcoming partnered with Rehash Trash to become a collection point for used plastic bags, that they then work into a whole range of items available for purchase. A fantastic social enterprise that we are excited to partner with!

• Keep learning and finding new ways to go greener, by learning from Plastic Free SEA who holds regular workshops in our meeting room upstairs – for more info please check their page.

In early July 2019, Lub d Cambodia Siem Reap teamed up with other people and communities which shared the same passion, in supporting of Siem Reap Cleaning // Plastic Free July Campaign to raise awareness of how plastic is really destroying our beautiful city!
