FAIR CosmEthics

ENJOY COSMETICS THE FAIR WAY

In order to be able to offer our guests a special care experience, to protect the environment and to support fair trade, we purchase the innovative care series Fair CosmEthics from ADA Cosmetics. The rich formulas from Fair CosmEthics, which use certified cane sugar and Brazil nut oil, carry the internationally recognised Fairtrade seal, ensure pleasant cleansing and leave your skin feeling velvety-soft.

Another reason why we chose the care line from Ada Cosmetics is the environmental friendliness of the products. The ingredients that get into the wastewater are biodegradable, and the product packaging consists mainly of PET, a material that is 100 percent recyclable.

GREIF LAUNDRY

NOT ONLY CLEAN, BUT CARBON-NEUTRAL

Our certified laundry partner Greif supplies us with spanking clean, carbon-neutral laundry that makes you feel good and comfortable. The linen is made of pure cotton and is produced in Europe. The laundry is, of course, cleaned to flawless hygiene levels with a disinfecting effect. Incidentally, Greif is a supporter of the UN Global Compact and a signatory of the Science Based Target Initiative of CDP, UN Global Compact, WRI and WWF.

And what exactly does carbon-neutral mean at Greif? Thanks to the use of 100% green electricity, state-of-the-art washing systems and an efficient washing process, right down to the implementation of water and heat recovery systems, Greif works with very low emissions, though not entirely emission-free. We therefore offset the CO2 emissions generated for our laundry (cleaning and delivery) through a project in Uganda. This compensatory project supports smallholders in reforesting woodland and better managing existing forests and is certified according to the Plan Vivo standard. The CO₂ is permanently bound in the growing trees and plants.

 

TCHIBO CAFISSIMO

FRESH AND SUSTAINABLE COFFEE TO ENJOY

The day always starts better when you can enjoy your coffee whilst still in your pyjamas. Each apartment is equipped with a coffee machine for this purpose. So that you can enjoy an aromatic and flawlessly hygienic drink, we decided to use capsules.

Coffee capsules don't have the best reputation for sustainability though. We therefore looked for a supplier who values both recyclability and sustainability: Tchibo. Tchibo coffee capsules are 100% recyclable, and the coffee is 100% from certified sustainable farming. Together with partner organisations, Tchibo promotes ecological and socially compatible cultivation methods and thus helps to protect the climate and biosphere.

At our establishment, sufficient coffee capsules come as part of the basic amenities – tasty, fresh and certified Fairtrade.

FROSCH, SODASAN AND BLAUE HELDEN

BYE-BYE PLASTIC – SPOTLESS THANKS TO RESOURCE-SAVING CLEANING AGENTS

Cleanliness and hygiene are, of course, a top priority for us. But we also keep an eye on the environment and use resource-saving cleaning agents wherever possible, such as those made by Frosch or Sodasan.

These manufacturers pay attention to sustainability in the ingredients, but also in the packaging. The cleaning tabs by Blaue Helden are also part of our standard repertoire.

How does it work? We fill the reusable spray bottle and simply add the tab. This saves us several kilos of plastic waste every year, because every tab avoids a single-use plastic bottle. The tabs are also 100% biodegradable, vegan, cruelty-free and without microplastics.

Blaue Helden also cooperate with plasticbank. For every tab bought, another plastic bottle is removed from the oceans and the environment – for a cleaner world, bit by bit!
