Some more examples of how we try to be kinder to the environment and minimise our environmental impact are:
We use 50% of recycled paper for all internal printing.
We have a green policy which is endorsed by management and staff.
All our emails remind the reader to consider the environment before printing.
We make electronic copies accessible and only print what and when absolutely necessary.
We use energy saving bulbs where possible.
The spaces in our hotels have been large windows and skylights, especially designed to let in a lot of natural light.
All the hot water pipes at our hotels are insulated.
All the waste at our hotels is separated at source and then recycled.
All towels are laundered on request in order to reduce water & energy consumption.
Certain lamps are placed on a switch or timer to control their light usage.
We return plastic crates, juice bottles and glass jars to the suppliers.
Used cooking oil is returned to the supplier to be turned into biodiesel.
We use soap dispensers and buy refills for them. Due to Tourism Grading Council requirements we are obliged to provide individual bathroom amenities, but we ask our guests to use the dispensers first and foremost
All our toilets are equipped with dual flush systems to conserve water.
We installed aerated taps and adjustable showerheads in all of the renovated bathrooms.
We have added low flow adapters to the shower heads as well as to the hand held showers.
Our ultimate goal is to treat the environment as kindly as we treat our guests.
