Travelife hotels, environmental commitment

New Solarium and Banyan hotels take care of the environment as much as their guests!

Nowadays, it is important to take into account in the daily management of a hotel the environmental aspect, in order to preserve the nature around us. This is why hotels of Lodges and Mountain group have decided to take part of Travelife project since 6 years.

What is Travelife? It is an environmental certification involved in a global and European sustainable action of tourism, which contributes to sustainable development and environmental and cultural protection within tourism and travel sectors. To do so, participants have to respect requirement specifications such as use of at least 50% of fair trade products for tea and coffee, two-sided documents, computation of energy, use of eco-label cleaning products, and work with local suppliers etc.

Mrs Sophie Roskam, General Manager, adds “the idea of belonging to a label that respects an ecological charter was an evidence for our hotels and our teams. Why are we alerted personally and not professionally?  It belongs to us to offer our guests high-quality holidays while respecting human beings and Nature, to explain them our commitment because it involves changing their habits as well. We had to do it and we were not scared of it”.  Therefore, our guests also take part to the project with easy actions like take a shower instead of a bath, turn the light off when leaving the room, keeping the same towels etc.
