Kanha Earth Lodge is truly committed to its pledge for eco-tourism. With sustainability coursing through our veins, we have taken big strides in keeping the area around our lodge free of plastic.
We have managed to remove all single-use plastic use from our accommodation and public area and are working towards making our lodge Carbon free by 2024.
'Gond' tribal artefacts are used for decorating our interiors, therefore providing livelihood opportunities to the locals. We also promote this tribal art formby stocking them in our souvenir shops. Besides this most of our fresh food produce is sourced locally and 75% of our team is drawn from villages around Kanha.Read more about our no single use plastic commitment here
Narna village, which is in close proximity to our lodge is inhabited by a population of about six-hundred Gond tribals with whom we share a wonderful rapport. We have adopted the Narna village school and we also sponsor a teacher.
We regularly support the school with stationary, books and other items, and also engage with the village for some humble development work.
Our naturalists often conduct educative workshops &frequently distribute merchandise such as steel bottles and cloth bags to the children.
We have happened to host a few big hearted guests in the past,who like to offer their gift of time, by volunteering to either teach or simply interact with these wonderful bunch of children.
