The four star Amber Springs Hotel in Gorey has saved 6,500 plastic water bottles as part of its new green initiative, which will see all plastic single use water bottles eliminated from the hotel’s bedrooms – saving 100,000 plastic bottles annually.
As part of the new #ambergogreen initiative, six water hydration stations have been introduced throughout the hotel.
The initiative was launched with the support of Flossie Donnelly (@flossieandthebeachcleaners), and has also seen the hotel switch from plastic straws to paper, and introducing compostable take away cups and lids.
“This is important to us. As a family friendly hotel resort with a huge percentage of our guests being the next generation we believe we are ideally positioned to reinforce that green message. Together, doing what we can, we can help restore and maintain our land and environment for the generations ahead by walking softly on our planet,” said Eibhear Coyle General Manager of the Amber Springs.
“Focusing on specific issues like reducing, recycling and reusing solid waste, reducing the use of chemicals, conserving energy and water and improving indoor air quality alongside every facet of the hotel operations, our aim is to initiate immediate steps to improve what we do and how we do it, not just because our guests ask but because we recognise as a leading hotel in Ireland we must pave the way,” he concluded.
