Becoming more eco-friendly is not only a moral decision, but it is also more cost-effective for your hotel in the long-run.
Resources are plentiful for those looking to make their homes more energy-efficient. However, not a lot exists for hotels. These ideas will help you make your hotel rooms eco-friendlier.
Partner with environmentally-conscious businesses
Think about the vast amount of companies your hotel connects with. Food products, bathroom amenities, cleaning products, linen, electrical, and so many more.
Being environmentally-conscious is now trending. The great thing about this is that there are now many businesses changing their practices to preserve our Earth’s natural resources. This will also appeal to many guests at your hotel. Work with companies using minimal plastic, buy in bulk, and purchase from sustainable plantations.
Choose to support local business and organic farming. Air traffic emissions are a huge culprit when it comes to pollution. Local businesses do not require long-distance transport of their products to you. Alternatively, work with companies that transport by sea or land instead.
Make Use of Renewable Energy
Solar power harnesses a natural resource, the sun, to generate electricity. Solar power isn’t limited to just solar panelling. Water heating contributes to a significant energy cost for hotels. Consider over conventional methods for a more environmentally-favourable approach.
