Ecotourism in Paris and at Hotel des 2 Continents
Our ecological approach
- Water resources management: Installation of flow limiters
- Energy resources management: Low consumption light bulbs / presence detector / timer
- Sensitization of our guests and staff to the use of air conditioning, heating…
- Our teams are trained to respect the daily ecological gestures.
- We choose our service providers and suppliers according to their sustainable and social commitments.
- The sorting of waste which is set up in the rooms also contributes to our ecological approach. Thus, our waste is entirely sorted.
- Ozonated water is used for cleaning, which offers better air quality and fewer health risks.
- The care products put in the rooms have been reviewed to save plastic and to be recyclable.They are fully eco-certified.
- Of course, we use organic products, short supply chains and seasonal products for breakfast.
- In order to limit waste, we work in partnership with a leshotelssolidaires.com to redistribute pastries not consumed at breakfast.
- The Hotel des 2 Continents is pleased to sponsor a beehive at Happyzabeille.
Our goals :
- Analyze our energy consumption in order to continue our efforts in our environmental involvement
- Calculate our carbon footprint
Let’s work together
Let’s protect our water resources
- We will change your towels when needed: please leave in the bathtub or on the ground the ones to be changed.
- We limit the linen change (every 3 days) in order to reduce the impact of harmful products for the environment, and we propose you not to change linen and even not to clean the room. Just contact reception desk.
- Make sure taps are switched off when brushing teeth in order not to run water unnecessarily. A 5 minutes shower consumes 40 to 50 liters of water, each additional minute consumes 10 liters more.
- Be careful about what you throw into the toilets, wastebaskets are available in all bathrooms. Cigarette butts or sanitary towels for example distort the smooth running of water-treatment plants
- Please call the staff if there is any water leak or dysfunction
Energy is our future, let’s save it!
- Use heating and air conditioning sparingly: it’s better for your health
- If you open the window, do not forget to turn off the heating or air conditioning
- Please turn off lights when leaving your room
