At B+B York, we believe in harmonizing luxury with responsible stewardship of our environment. Our commitment to sustainability is embedded in every aspect of your stay, from the moment you step into our premises. Here are some of the significant changes we’ve made to ensure a greener and more conscious experience for our guests:
Bidding Adieu to Single-Use Plastics:
We’ve taken a bold step by eliminating single-use plastic water bottles from our offerings. We understand that sustainability starts with small actions, and this change significantly reduces plastic waste and its impact on the planet. However, should you require water, worry not – our reception still offers water refills and reusable bottles for your convenience.
Embracing Toiletry Sustainability:
The era of single-use plastic toiletries in bedrooms is over. We’ve replaced them with eco-friendly alternatives, still readily available at the reception for your use. This not only reduces plastic waste but also supports a more sustainable travel experience.
Mindful Recycling Practices:
We are proud to say that we recycle up to 67% of our waste. By segregating and processing our waste materials, we’re contributing to a cleaner environment and encouraging responsible waste management practices. Together, we can make a difference, one recycled item at a time.
Water Conservation Efforts:
Our commitment to water conservation goes beyond the ordinary. With the installation of low-flow faucets and showerheads, we ensure that you enjoy every drop of comfort without compromising on our shared responsibility to conserve water resources.
Our dedication to energy efficiency shines brightly through our low-energy lighting. By incorporating energy-saving bulbs and fixtures throughout our property, we’re reducing our carbon footprint while still creating a warm and welcoming ambiance.
Timely Energy Consumption:
We understand that responsible energy consumption is key to sustainability. To that end, we’ve implemented timers on appliances to ensure they are active only when needed, minimizing energy wastage without compromising your comfort.
Towel Change Upon Request:
In our commitment to reducing unnecessary laundry and conserving water, we change towels only upon request. This practice not only respects your preferences but also contributes to the reduction of water and energy consumption associated with frequent towel changes.
Digital Guest Services:
To minimize paper usage, we’ve transitioned to digital platforms for guest services. Information, bookings, and inquiries are now conveniently accessible through our website and emails, reducing the need for printed materials.
Our outdoor spaces are designed with native and drought-resistant plants that require minimal water and maintenance. This ensures a vibrant, green environment while conserving precious resources.
Energy Monitoring and Reporting:
We track our energy consumption and emissions to identify opportunities for improvement. By staying accountable and transparent, we continuously refine our sustainability practices.
Supporting Conservation Organizations:
A portion of our proceeds goes toward supporting conservation organizations dedicated to preserving York’s natural beauty and heritage. When you stay with us, you’re contributing to meaningful environmental efforts.
