Sustainable Hotel in Estoril
Hotel Londres, a sustainable hotel in Estoril
More than a buzzword, the word 'sustainability' has set the agenda for the best causes. We live on a planet with finite resources and the importance of sustainability, of small acts such as recycling, of caring for future generations and, above all, of ensuring efficient management of resources, is increasingly being cared for by brands -especially those that are seriously committed to the environment, as is the case of Hotel Londres, a sustainable hotel in Estoril. Sustainability must be governed by the here and now and, with this, there are measures that must be taken.
At Hotel Londres, sustainability is taken into account in all our operations. In this sense, in 2017 an internal awareness campaign was carried out, through the training of teams, to promote the provision of better services with the least environmental impact. This procedure was divided into four areas: food and drinks, floors, services and maintenance.
In order to maximize energy efficiency, in the area of food and drinks, the main measures were based on the use of reusable glass bottles, which allowed Hotel Londres to save more than 14,000 bottles. Likewise, we have reduced the use of canned soft drinks, which has meant a saving of more than 8,000 units, and biodegradable straws, which has meant a reduction of some 9,650 straws. Other actions in this area include the use of recycling bins to classify rubbish in the bar for use by guests, the recycling of cooking oils, and raising awareness among partners and guests for the implementation of more ecological measures.
The reuse of bottles of cleaning products, attention to removing electrical appliances from the power when they no longer need to be charged, the implementation of water bottles in the different departments, the reduction of printing on paper were other measures adopted. Also, noteworthy is the use of LED lamps and low-consumption appliances, the adaptation of taps with water reducers, the reuse of the rainwater system for watering the hotel garden, as well as the implementation of timers in common areas, among many others.
At Hotel Londres we believe that every small step can change lives and that raising awareness of the issue is up to all of us, because careful actions have very important consequences. Precisely for this reason, we try to make our guests aware of taking small steps to take care of the environment, such as showering instead of diving (especially in the current context of drought that the country is going through); reuse bath towels; to save resources such as energy, toilet paper, water and food.
For this reason, we have to invite you to discover a hotel committed to sustainability, with a privileged location, a stone's throw from the beach, Cascais, Sintra and Lisbon. Hotel Londres is the ideal option for those who seek to be in synergy with nature, always appreciating the importance of small acts that make the planet better.
