Sweet Escape has made significant efforts to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Rare for a vessel this size, she has a black-water treatment facility, which allows us to safely treat black water waste to be disposed of properly. Additionally, disposable items are kept to a minimum (i.e., we do not stock plastic straws), and our state-of-the-art water treatment plant allows us to produce our own drinking water, helping reduce the use of plastic bottles while on board. Every single light bulb onboard Sweet Escape is an LED light bulb, and low-e reflective film has been applied on glass as well as insulation throughout to reduce energy consumption.
