Sustainability in the hotel does not necessarily have to be expensive. You don’t have to feel compelled to buy high-priced green power or “high-tech” solar panels. Often, small changes are enough to make a big impact. Surely among your guests are some who would appreciate a sustainable hotel. Not sure where to start? How to make your hotel and ski room a more eco-friendly place and useful tips on how to do it, you can learn here!
3 tips for more sustainability in the hotel
Of course, your guests don’t have to sit in the dark. LED lamps are up to 90% more economical than conventional lamps. If these are then connected to motion detectors, it’s a real dream for the environment and, of course, for your wallet. In addition, LED lamps have a longer service life and the sum of repairs and maintenance is less than other types of lamps.
Waste separation and waste avoidance
Waste separation is already an integral part of society when it comes to sustainability. In the hotel, however, this can easily get lost, especially on busy days. Therefore, it is important that your team is well trained. Above all, it is important to reduce the amount of waste that is produced. This can be accomplished, for example, by avoiding plastic-wrapped jams at breakfast. For example, switch to refillable glass bowls and large jars of jam. Most often, the latter are even cheaper than small jam packs.
To improve sustainability in your hotel you can save water in the hotel. This is accomplished in two different ways. For one, you could wash your guests’ towels and bedding only every other day. In a 100-room hotel, this can save an average of 270,000 liters of water per year. The second option is to switch to water-saving showerheads and faucets. These usually cost only slightly more than conventional ones and save both water and costs over time.
Sustainability in the ski room
The ski room can also save a lot of energy. Automatically opening doors, for example, can keep the heat in the room and prevent excessive heating. Likewise, motion sensors can also be installed in the ski room.

Another energy-saving option that might suit you is our new shoe dryer with Secatronic technology. This system is also made of stainless steel and can be used for individual wall sizes due to its modular shape and can be butt mounted.
