Every area of Thailand has its own unique style when it comes to flavors and flair in the kitchen, and the southern provinces are no different. Sourcing ingredients locally and adopting a zero-waste approach to cooking is key to maximizing the use of natural resources and eliminating unnecessary trash.
Koh Tao is a small island with limited natural resources, so our passionate eco-focused community is always keen to showcase the different ways natural products can be used to eliminate waste. Tie-dying is a zero-waste endeavor and a cottage industry that provides income for Koh Tao locals. They use only naturally derived coloring agents and coconut meal to produce one-of-a-kind creations.
