At Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun, we take part in various sustainable efforts that ensure our guests have fun while also being cautious and respectful of the environment! As a Rainforest Alliance Certified™ resort, Now Sapphire is committed to promoting a sustainable tourism environment by employing a variety of eco-friendly and socially responsible practices.
Now Sapphire was recently recognized by the Rainforest Alliance for implementing an exemplary waste management program to reduce, treat and safely dispose of hazardous/non-hazardous wastes.
The program began with an analysis of the existing conditions and the education of our personnel. The resort worked closely with professionals trained in identifying, handling and sorting hazardous, chemical and solid wastes.
To date, Now Sapphire has recovered and recycled more than 32 tons of materials that would otherwise have ended up in the municipal landfill! We work hard everyday to educate our staff about creating and re-purposing organic compost, which visitors can then re-create for their own gardens at home!
For more information on this initiative, check out this article from The Guardian.
Set in a tropical landscape of palm trees, soft sand and sparkling azure sea, combining a AAA Four Diamond award designation with Unlimited-Luxury®amenities, Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun offers the perfect escape for families with teens and tweens, couples and friends.
