Green award for resort maintenance manager
Nathan Costelloe, maintenance manager at Ramada Resort by Wyndham Seven Mile Beach in Tasmania, has been awarded the 2018 Wyndham Destinations Caught Green Handed Award.
Costelloe was recognised for his environmental efforts at the resort including repurposing leftover timber from a pool deck refurbishment to build screens in the resort dining room, along with a bird-viewing platform. He has also set up a native nursery onsite and implemented a food waste recycling programme.
To recognise his efforts, Costelloe will have a native rainforest tree planted in his honour in Gunung Leuser National Park in North Sumatra, Indonesia. The park is one of two remaining habitats for Sumatran orang-utans.
Ramada Seven Mile Beach is an eco-inspired resort located right opposite Seven Mile Beach. Situated in a bushland setting, the resort features native gardens, resident wallabies and expansive grounds that reflect the rugged beauty of southern Tasmania.
