Green Initiatives

Our Commitment


At EMBRACE, we believe sustainable tourism to be effective, must be a lifestyle commitment rather than a sporadic effort or marketing tactic. As our identity is inspired by the organic and novel beauty of the Bahamian islands, we use environmentally conscious practices from construction through to operation. Travelers come to The Bahamas, and especially the Exumas, because they’re enchanted by our pristine natural surroundings. If those of us in the tourism industry don’t make the effort to take care of our environment, visitors will eventually stop visiting our shores. If The Bahamas is to flourish for years to come, sustainability must start with us.

Current Efforts


At present we’ve continued to source majority locally produced and/or recycled items as much as possible. Our sustainability is driven by the “each one teach one” philosophy. We encourage our guests by providing detailed information in our booklets regarding our sustainability efforts to hopefully inspire them to also use these practice in their day to day life. We also have a towel reuse program and encourage guests to turn off electricity and reduce water usage during their stay with us. We also have an irrigation system for our plants which has been very successful in reusing water while keeping our garden flourishing.

Our Partners


We worked with an OBMI’s Environmental Consultant, Denaye Hinds who ensured that we do our best to function in an environmentally friendly manner throughout the construction and operation of EMBRACE. EMBRACE plans to partner with organizations like Cans for Kids, Go Green Bahamas, the Bahamas National Trust and of course, the neighboring Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park in the future.
