With more of us looking to do our bit for the environment when and wherever we can, Eco Hotels are becoming an increasingly popular choice of business and holiday accommodation alike. The Green House Hotel, one of the leading hotels in Bournemouth, has recently been awarded the coveted AA Eco hotel of the year award for 2012 -2013.
The Green House operates to five core principles which have been designed to ensure that the hotel minimises its impact to the environment by acting in an ethical and responsible manner at all times. The hotel takes a holistic approach to these principles and through working to them achieves an outstanding result. The principles are:-
Whenever possible, the hotel sources all of its products locally, with the food in the restaurant coming from within a 50 mile radius. This helps reduce energy waste when it comes to transportation and also helps to support the local community.
Reduce, Re-use, Re-cycle
By taking this approach, the hotel minimises their consumption of materials and energy.
Consider what comes in and what goes out
By keeping a keen eye on the lifecycle of everything that comes into the hotel and considering what will happen to it after use, the hotel helps to minimise any adverse impact on the environment.
Insist on high welfare standards
The hotel only deals with organisations that have high welfare standards.
Be transparent, open and honest
The hotel prides itself on being open and honest with its customers and suppliers at all times.
As ‘self styled ‘greenest hotel in the UK the Green House Hotel demonstrates great commitment and staff awareness to being green, and has shown outstanding progress in energy and water management and aspects of purchasing”
All of The Green House Hotel’s well-appointed rooms have unique “green” features and have been designed with the ultimate comfort of their guests in mind and the public spaces, including the restaurant which serves only the best in local produce, have a welcoming comfortable feel.
