Small Change, Big Impact at Apsara

The Apsara is among the first hotels to climb on board Luang Prabang’s “Plastic Free Bottle Initiative” that kicked off in January 2018, and the move is paying dividends.

The hotel has switched to offering its guests glass bottles rather than disposable plastic water bottles. In 2017, the property used 2,275, 1.5-litre plastic bottles and 5,443, 600-ml plastic bottles.

This small change to glass will save the Apsara approximately 15,000,000 kip (around $1,797 USD) in 2018, if the hotel occupancy remains the same the previous year.

The Apsara noted, “It’s very encouraging to see how a small change can bring such a big impact.”
