At all Avillion hotels, we have put in place green practices that we hope will make you feel good about where you have chosen for your holiday stay. We are constantly working on enhancing and introducing more green practices. Here's what we have done so far.
All of our soap, shampoo and conditioner are made from a 100% natural ingredients derived from plant extracts. They are paraben-free and biodegradable. These give our hotel guests a natural bathing experience and help reduce the amount of water pollutants in sewerage systems.
ENERGY SAVING LIGHT BULBS
We have embarked on a programme to change the light bulbs used in hotel rooms from regular light bulbs to energy saving light bulbs. Lower energy consumption equates to reduced production and less energy and resources wasted in the day-to-day running of our hotels.
AUTOMATIC ENERGY SUPPLY CUT-OFF
We have ensured all recently renovated hotels installed an automatic energy supply cut off system that is activated or deactivated with the hotel rooms' key cards. This has negligible impact on guests' stay and saves tremendous amount of energy supply when the rooms are not occupied.
WATER CLOSET FLUSH SYSTEM
In our effort to conserve water, we have introduced a half flush water closet system into our hotels. On average, a half flush utilizes 3 litres of water and a full flush 6 litres.
Assume a hotel of 100 rooms with guests that saves one half flush (or 3 litres) of water per day, that equates to 300 litres a day, 2100 litres a week and 109,200 litres a year. For easy visualization, 109,200 litres in terms of volume is stored in 72,800 bottles of 1.5L mineral water bottles.
PLASTIC VERSUS PAPER
We have made conscious effort in reducing the quantity of plastic used in the hotel.
We have switched to using paper wherever possible.
