Eco-friendly hostel drives home the green message [News]
Travelling and going green are not usually associated with one other.
But Singapore’s first and only green backpackers’ hostel is giving travellers an option to go green, without sacrificing the creature comforts.
It has received more than 2,500 guests since it opened more than a year ago.
Located at Tan Quee Lan Street in Bugis, Tree In Lodge is Singapore’s first environmentally-friendly hostel.
Tan Swee Kian, co-owner, Tree In Lodge, said: “We actually used an old building and fitted it with some facilities for going green. (We) also built in practices to make it a habit. I think it’s more important because this goes back to the basics.”
