On an average about two to three hundred thousand tourists visit the Andamans every
year, and every tourist consumes at least 2-3 liters of packaged drinking water
and an occasional bottle of coke every day, assume you stay on the islands for seven
days and do the maths!!!
It’s a huge amount of plastic that we cannot recycle. THE ISLANDS HAVE NO PLASTIC
RECYCLING PLANT!!! Sadly so far the administration is doing nothing about it, and
making the problem worse by burning the plastic. But we as individuals can do something
about it…. Well we at the Full Moon Café are at least trying.
We have had a safe filtered water refilling station for over 7 years, and our menu
has several healthier and tastier options to packaged drinks. We urge our customers
not to buy PET Bottles and to refill and reuse them to help, help us keep the islands
clean and green!!!
It is part of our philosophy to try and stop tourists visiting
our islands from buying PET plastic bottles.
