Sustainability

Sustainability is a word and work in progress. It’s never done, but can always be done better.
Some things you will notice, other things are less visible.

 

Instead of a complimentary single use water bottle you will find a Dopper bottle on your bed.
You can keep it and refill it at all times. Your bedside reading light is a WakaWaka solar powered light.
We donate to the WakaWaka Foundation to Light Up A Life for every reservation.
And on your pillow: Tony’s Chocolonely chocolates, on a mission to make chocolate 100% slave free.
