Sea-U Guest House, Barbados, renews its pledge  with Green Globe

Green Globe Certification CEO Mr. Guido Bauer said: “Sea-U Guest House is a perfect example of collaboration and innovation between the guest house owner, expatriate Miss Uschi Wetzels, and the local community from Tent Bay. “Together they deliver an authentic and quality holiday experience which leads as an example of good environmental practice and social engagement for all Barbadian tourism operators,” added Mr. Bauer.

Sea-U Guest House rests near the natural, unspoiled beaches of Bathsheba and is close to one of the finest surf spots in Barbados, Soup Bowl. The guest house is also within walking distance from the renowned Andromeda Botanic Gardens.

Sea-U Guest House owner, Miss Uschi Wetzels, said: “Since our original certification, we have achieved so much, and we are very pleased to receive the Green Globe certification once again. Born and raised in Germany, I learnt early about ‘being green.’ Here in Barbados, it is a relatively new idea to pay close attention to environmental issues. As an example, a couple of years ago, I had to insist that cleaning products, not hazardous to us or the environment, must be used instead of the chlorine-based ones that were in use all over the island.

“Today it is in ‘everybody’s blood’ as we say in Germany, to be environmentally conscious in all of our daily activities at the guest house. Today, members of our staff come up with their own ideas on how to advance our green practice, while maintaining high standards. One of our interesting innovations was to replace common drinking straws with home grown bamboo straws to serve our house drink, coconut water in its own shell,” added Miss Wetzels.
