Sustainable practices not only help the environment and the community, but also help to cut down on cost. A little bit of effort and small investments can give long term benefits. Here are some tips to help you transform your guesthouse into a sustainable haven.

Save Energy

  • Install LED lighting where possible. These are more energy efficient, safer, and last longer than regular bulbs.
  • Use an outdoor clothes line to naturally dry linens.
  • Use daylight to keep common areas well-lit for as long as possible.
  • Utilise energy efficient appliances.

Save Water

  • Install low-pressure shower heads and high efficiency toilets.
  • Plant flora that requires less water to flourish.
  • Encourage guests to reuse towels and linens.

Invest in Green Products

  • Utilise refillable shampoo, shower gel and lotion bottles.
  • Switch to environmentally friendly cleaning products. They are less harmful for both humans and the environment.
  • Use reusable cups instead of plastic ones. Say no to single use plastic bottles and opt for ones made of glass or ceramics.
  • Use napkins instead of paper towels.
  • Ditch plastic kitchenware for dishes and metal cutlery.

Recycle

  • Separate waste into categories upstream so it is easier to divert waste from landfill.
  • Donate, compost, or reuse leftover food so that it does not go to waste.

The purpose of the 2010 Global Ecolabel Monitor was to increase the transparency of the different ecolabels for the benefit of both producers and consumers. The objective was to reduce confusion among ecolabels so that certifications can be more easily compared, and institutional buyers can recognise the different attributes of using one ecolabel or another.     The results will be published to an updated index of all ecolabels in the world in a standardized format at www.ecolabelindex.com to raise awareness about the attributes of different ecolabels and make it easier for people, companies, and others to use them.
