#Ecoevenia: Green Hotels Evenia
At Evenia Hotels we are aware of this problem and that’s why we have developed a series of initiatives to motivate more sustainable tourism, thus the #ecoevenia project was born. The objective is to help reduce the environmental impact of our hotels and resorts to minimize our ecological footprint. And not only that but also educate and encourage a commitment from all those who visit us, as well as publicize a viable and profitable project among the other chains in the sector.
The objectives of the #ecoevenia project are ambitious and want to be achieved in a short period:
- Eliminate the use of plastic throughout the resort
- Reuse as much paper as possible to care for our forests
- Reduce water consumption to protect the water resources that nature offers us
#ecoevenia at Evenia Olimpic Resort
This initiative is already a reality in our first ecological hotel. In Evenia Olimpic Resort several changes have been developed to meet the objectives set and implement them in the future in the rest of the hotels and resorts of the Evenia chain. This is where our change begins, this is where our future begins. Here are just a few examples of the changes that have been developed to gradually transform the Evenia Olimpic Resort into a 100% ecological hotel
Drinking water fountains
One of the big problems of environmental impact is plastic. That is why drinking water fountains have been distributed throughout the resort so that each of our clients can have water without the need to purchase disposable plastic water bottles.
Specifically, you will find water fountains in bars, snack bars, mini-clubs and in all the restaurants of the resort. In these dispensers, you can choose between cool, room temperature and sparkling water. Besides, customers will be able to purchase #ecoevenia canteens at hotel receptions with a very attractive design so that it can be filled with water from the fountains. We also have the “Canteen Kid” version for the little ones!
The #ecoevenia canteens are for sale at hotel receptions for €6, one of which is donated to Fecdas, Catalan Federation of underwater activities, for the development of cleaning and environmental awareness activities.
Every major change begins with small steps, and in this regard, we have designed a plan to reduce the single-use plastics throughout the resort. Plastic is one of the biggest causes of non-disposable waste, and it is key to reduce its consumption to free our seas and oceans from these pollutants. Currently, we no longer use disposable plastic bottles at the resort. We have implemented the use of compostable plastic for those objects of a single-use, such as glasses for hot and cold drinks.
100% Recycled paper
Another of the reduction fronts of our ecological footprint is paper. Both the table linen and the napkin of the restaurants and bars at Evenia Olimpic Resort are currently made of 100% recycled paper.
Locally sourced food
Gastronomy is also an important piece in the #ecoevenia project. Only using ecological and local products we can reduce the environmental impact greatly. In this sense, in all Evenia Olimpic Resort restaurants, we offer our customers seasonal products, coming from local crops and farms, as well as fresh fish from our coasts.
You will taste the best of Mediterranean cuisine made in a healthy way with fresh and local products. A whole bet of our resort to delight the palate of our customers, which has also allowed us to obtain the prestigious Amed certification (Mediterranean Food) of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
These are the foundations of a continuous project that we will carry out in our hotel chain. The intention and motivation of Evenia Hotels is to guarantee a more respectful future with the environment that surrounds us and with the planet Earth. We invite all our clients to join our initiative and contribute, in this way, to a better future for all. Do you sign up?
