Green your hotel

Why do we behave green at home but eco-wasteful in hotels?


We tend to behave wastefully in hotels: the mindset “I’ve paid for it so I’m going to use it!” prevails.

But don’t let your eco-manners slip just because you’re away from home. The hotel industry uses huge amounts of resources - don't worsen the problem. 

Remember to turn room lights off, hang up towels for re-use so they don’t get unnecessarily washed every day, and adjust clothing layers before adjusting the aircon.
