Our Commitment to Sustainability on Earth Day
As Earth Day approaches, The Hazelton Hotel is pleased to exhibit our dedication to sustainability through our numerous green initiatives. We recognize our own impact and strive to minimize our carbon footprint wherever possible.
Our property boasts a variety of energy-saving building systems, including a green roof, SMART Thermostats, Variable Frequency Drives, LED light bulbs, and eco-friendly materials such as wool carpets, which are the only carpet fiber not derived from petroleum, a scarce and non-biodegradable resource. We also provide electric vehicle (EV) charging stations as part of our efforts to achieve our own sustainability goals while also supporting the sustainability goals of our guests.
To reduce paper consumption and waste, we have introduced tablets in every guest room. These devices provide our guests with information about the hotel, the surrounding area, and allow them to make service requests and amenity bookings, effectively replacing all paper menus and information sheets.
Our signature One Restaurant promotes sustainable food and beverage practices, utilizing local and seasonal menu options and has partnered with 100KM Foods. We have also implemented eco-friendly practices in our daily operations, like the use of eco-certified cleaning products throughout the hotel, replacement of single-use plastic bags with reusable ones, and the introduction of the Press Reader App to eliminate physical newspapers. We offer Flow water packaged with renewable, plant-based materials that are 100% recyclable, and our Nespresso coffee pods in-room are completely recyclable due to their aluminum composition.
Beyond the Hotel, our employees volunteer in the local community through events and organizations such as Jump Thru Hoops and women’s shelters, donating items to further prevent waste and support those in need.
We are committed to sustainability and are constantly exploring new ways to reduce our environmental footprint while investing in green initiatives that benefit our guests, residents, and employees. So, on this Earth Day, let us all take action towards sustainability and make a positive difference, no matter how small.
