Novotel Hotel Glasgow & ibis Styles Glasgow City Centre
By switching bottles to glass, plastic disposable cups to paper, replacing jam and butter tubs with alternatives and looking at replacing front of house items such as bin bags with sustainable alternatives Novotel Glasgow and Ibis Glasgow City Centre are working towards eliminating all single use plastics. They have also removed all single use toiletries and replaced these with larger refillable bottles and new vanity kit amenities now have responsible paper packaging.
The hotels are working to replace all lights to LED bulbs, work began in public areas and moved on to conference facilities, with the focus now on bedrooms to complete the full install.
Go green skip the clean is an initiative which offers guests incentives such as a free drink or breakfast for skipping the daily cleaning in their room. By skipping a day, it saves on energy, water use and contributes to a cleaner atmosphere with less chemicals being used and carbon emissions from daily deliveries for supplies.
The Planet 21 programme was set up by Accor and awards hotels the Planet 21 certificate once sustainable guidelines have been met. This is mandatory for Accor hotels and gives clients and guests reassurance that all hotels are working towards a more sustainable future.
At the end of breakfast service in the hotel, instead of disposing of extra cooked food, this is offered on the Too Good To Go app at a discounted price for guests to come and collect, which reduces food waste.
