SUISTAINABLE ACCOMMODATION IN GEORGE
REDUCE, RE-USE, RECYCLE, RECOVER. The 4 R’s are not only our motto, it’s our way of life. We try our best to take care of our environment, in all aspects of life.
We all have to respect our environment and be conscious of our actions in it and our interactions with it. Please send us your ideas on how we can contribute towards keeping our planet healthy.
HOW WE APPROACH SUSTAINABILITY
Our architectural design prioritizes harnessing natural elements for heating, cooling, and lighting, optimizing the building's efficiency while minimizing environmental impact. Strategically isolated windows not only reduce heat loss but also mitigate external noise pollution, ensuring a serene and energy-efficient environment.
We take pride in our rainwater harvesting system, capturing this precious resource from the roof to supplement various needs within our establishment. From laundry use to replenishing the swimming pool and nurturing our gardens, this practice conserves thousands of liters of water daily, championing water sustainability.
Furthermore, our commitment to energy efficiency extends to the very fixtures within our premises. Compact fluorescent light bulbs adorn every light fitting, promoting lower energy consumption without compromising on illumination quality.
To further limit our reliance on conventional electricity, our choice of gas hobs and water heaters serves as an eco-conscious alternative, contributing to reduced energy consumption and a smaller carbon footprint.
At every turn, we strive to merge comfort with sustainability, offering a space where responsible practices not only preserve resources but also create an eco-friendly haven for our guests.
Our kitchens are thoughtfully equipped with dual waste bins, emphasizing our dedication to waste segregation. Every Wednesday, as we collect recyclables, we witness an inspiring sight: recyclables doubling the weight of non-recyclable waste. It's a testament to our collective effort in diverting materials away from landfills and toward recycling.
Moreover, our kitchen waste plays a vital role in nurturing our ecosystem. It becomes nourishment for our thriving worm farm, producing nutrient-rich compost and worm tea that breathe life into our gardens. This sustainable cycle minimizes waste while enriching our soil naturally, without reliance on harmful chemicals.
Join us in fostering a deeper connection with nature! Bring the kids along to discover responsible gardening methods firsthand. Learn how we prioritize sustainability, from waste management to organic gardening practices. It's an educational and enriching experience for the whole family, where every small action contributes to a greener, healthier planet
While our comfortable beds offer a haven for rest, an astonishing 90% of our furniture has been thoughtfully repurposed and rejuvenated, embracing a unique blend of modern style and vintage allure through stunning upholstery. Each piece embodies a narrative that intertwines history with contemporary elegance, creating an ambiance that's both inviting and environmentally conscious.
During your stay at 17onWellington Suites, you might find yourself inspired to explore the art of reupholstering. Our furniture stands as a testament to the beauty and potential of giving new life to old pieces, and you may just discover your own knack for reviving furniture with a touch of creativity and resourcefulness.
