Radio Taxi at The Mayflower Inn


Need a taxi?
Relax at the lobby
while we call one for you…

Guests often complain:
“Why do we have to wait
for the front desk to call a taxi? “
“Why can’t we just hail a cab from the street?”

Here’s the truth:
we are doing you
and our planet
at no Charge..

To ensure your safe trip in Cebu,
we only call accredited radio taxi companies.
FYI: We do not get any commission from this transaction,
this is a pure act of service.

A Service to you…

While waiting for your taxi you have the time:
• to relax in the safety of our lobby
and maintain your composure
before going on your next journey
• to interact with family, friends
and other guests at our shared spaces

A Service to the planet…

Patronizing Radio taxi companies means:
• Taxi drivers do not have to drive around
the city looking for passengers.
They just park at a taxi garage
and wait to be called.

• Benefit to the planet:
Radio taxi = Less burning of fossil fuel
=climate change mitigation
(actions that decrease the potential effects of global warming)

• Benefit to people:
Less cars on the street
= Less Pollution =Healthier people
People move with ease = Happier people


Edible Landscaping & Container Gardening


Edible Landscaping & Container Gardening

Why grow food in the city?
At the Mayflower Inn,
We say-
Why Not Grow Food in the City?!

Edible Landscaping
is the cultivation
of food producing plants
such as fruit,nut trees, vegetables,
herbs, edible flowers and ornamental plants
in a constructed landscape.

Container edible gardening
may be done by reusing
PET (polyethylene terephthalate) containers
such as water and juice plastic bottles.

Why are edible landscaping
and container gardening
wise eco-practices?

Here are the benefits
of growing our own food
right where we are:
(even in a small space)

• Enjoy the freshness of home-grown,
naturally- ripened fruits & vegetables
• Ensure household food security
• Enjoy pesticide & herbicide-free food
• Save on grocery money
• Bring natural world to the city

Shorten the distance from the farm to the fork
= Less use of transport
= Less burning of fossil fuel
= Climate Change Mitigation
(actions that decrease the potential effects of global warming)

Try this at home and start growing your own food!
