Some of the actions that our hotel guests can easily join are just slightly reducing the consumption.
Water waste is a major concern in laundry operations. Many commercial laundry facilities use large volumes of water for washing, rinsing, and finishing processes, resulting in high water usage and wastage. This could lead to water scarcity in areas where water resources are already limited if we look at a global impact.
Detergents and other chemicals needed in laundry can also be harmful to the environment. Although they are generally considered safe to use, when they are overly used, the large amount of it could eventually contribute to water pollution.
To address these issues, many of our sustainable hotels and resorts are adopting eco-friendly laundry practices. This includes using high-efficiency washing machines that require less water, using eco-friendly detergents that are biodegradable and free of harmful chemicals, and implementing water and energy conservation measures such as reusing water and using solar power.
By adopting these practices, SERENATA hotels and resorts can significantly reduce their water and energy consumption, minimize their impact on the environment, and contribute to a more sustainable future.
Additionally, changing bed linens every day for guests during their consecutive stay can have a significant impact on the environment. The process of washing and drying bed linens requires large amounts of water and energy, which can contribute to water scarcity, greenhouse gas emissions, and other environmental issues.
One way to reduce this impact is by implementing a linen reuse program. This program involves encouraging guests to reuse their bed linens during their stay, rather than having them changed every day. By doing this, hotels and resorts can significantly reduce their water and energy usage, as well as the amount of laundry generated.
To encourage guests to participate in a linen reuse program, SERENATA hotels and resorts use in-room signage and other communication tools to remind guests of the program and encourage them to participate.
Implementing a linen reuse program not only helps to reduce the environmental impact of daily laundry practices but also promotes sustainable tourism and eco-conscious behavior among guests. By working together, resorts, and guests can make a positive impact on the environment and create a more sustainable future.
