Sustainability

Did you know that we are helping to preserve the Planet?

The Hotel Londres's main focus is to provide the best service, with the least environmental impact. The preservation of the planet and the creation of a more sustainable ecological footprint are factors with a strong presence in our culture and which have challenged us to develop and improve our service in a conscious way.

Thus, in 2017 we decided to make our environmental position official through an awareness campaign in this regard.

The focus on training our team was one of the most important measures implemented. This allowed us to debate internally and identify with greater precision the main areas in which we should act.

We called Godfather to everyone who proposed an idea/action to be implemented in the Hotel. This initiative was crucial to have an incentive in this sense, as well as a person responsible for executing and maintaining this procedure.

FOOD AND BEVERAGES

- In our restaurant, we chose to use reusable glass bottles, which allowed us to save more than 14,305 bottles.

- We reduced the use of canned soft drinks. We saved 8,136 units .

- We now use Kraft paper bags instead of plastic bags for our picnics. So we save 30 kg of plastic each year.

- We opted for the use of biodegradable straws and we use plastic straws when a certain type of drink/cocktail requires it. This measure led to a reduction of around 9,650 straws

- We no longer have single-use plastic cups and start acquiring recyclable polycarbonate cups

- We now have an ecopoint for sorting garbage in the Bar for guests to use. This procedure was already done internally by our staff, in the Bar, Restaurant and Kitchen.

- The recycling of cooking oils is carried out by a specialized company with registration and certification.

- We now have chia, sesame and other seeds in bulk for our breakfasts and we have a small vegetable garden for our Chef to use

- We sensitize our partners/suppliers in order to reinforce the importance of implementing more ecological measures.

- Execution of menus, according to the number of meals, as well as the preparation of food by the staff is always considered to avoid food waste as much as possible, always with all the necessary food quality rigor

 

FLOORS

- Unplug electrical devices when they no longer need charging and turn off unnecessary lights

- The faucets in the bathrooms of the rooms were adapted with water reducers, aimed at saving water. Public areas have timers

WHAT OUR GUESTS CAN DO TO HELP LOWER THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT:

- During the summer, we advise our guests to close the curtains as much as possible. In winter we suggest carrying out the opposite process to maintain a favorable ambient temperature.

- If possible, shower instead of soaking

- We advise you to use water in the glass when brushing your teeth instead of opting for running tap water

- It is possible to reuse bath towels more than once. To do this, you must place them on the towel rail. To make the exchange for fresh towels, just put them on the floor.

- We ask our guests to keep the window and balcony door closed when the air conditioning is working

- We value our clean air. Think about the same before turning on and using the air conditioner

- Save, when possible, toilet paper

- When leaving your room, please do not leave your card in the saver. Thus, it is possible to realize huge savings when the guest is not in the room. Our floor staff are instructed to remove the card.

- Do not leave your equipment plugged in for more than necessary. It's safer and more rewarding

- At the Buffet, we advise a thoughtful attitude. Don't take too much food from the buffet, you can help yourself as many times as you want
