As a small island with limited options for the safe disposal or removal of waste, Koh Tao residents have learned to limit their use of non-biodegradable products. We’ve also become creative in using recycling and upcycling techniques to turn discarded items into products that are both practical and environmentally friendly.
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.
Koh Tao is a small island with limited natural resources, but our conservation-focused community strives to use our unique ecology to our advantage by mastering the production of organic products like soaps, shampoo, detergents, and cleaning fluids, etc. Using naturally-derived ingredients ensures maximum use of precious resources and eliminates unnecessary wastage.
