SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT AT DOVER BEACH

db-housekeeping

We take our environment very seriously at Dover Beach Hotel, making every effort to reduce our carbon footprint by wisely utilising our energy.

Solar Water panels and tanks provide warm water to our guests and, of course, reduce the consumption of energy to fulfil our warm water requirements.

Our housekeeping team is committed to the use of organic homemade cleaners instead of chemical-laced products to keep our rooms spotless. Our cleaning solutions are created with baking soda, vinegar, and degradable soap, and then “scented” up with peppermint or orange oil for fresh and pleasant aromas.

Several water tanks collect our rainwater run-off, which in turn is used to water our plants and gardens. This aids considerably in the reduction in our water consumption and water bills.

Additionally, we see to it that we reduce the amount of waste going to our local landfill by sorting the waste from our guest rooms for recycling purposes.

These actions have made Dover Beach a Green Globe Certified Hotel, an accomplishment for which we are very proud, as saving our environment is of paramount importance to our entire team.
