Doing Our Part: Sustainability and Supercity
Consider yourself environmentally friendly?
There’s been plenty of talk surrounding our planet and our environment. From going paper-less to cutting down on food wastage and substituting one set of wheels for another. Being kinder to our planet can be healthier and more cost-efficient too!
At Supercity, we’re always trying to implement ways of reducing our carbon footprint and taking necessary steps to help our planet.
How, you ask?
Our mission is to take steps towards reducing our environmental impact and we have input several new initiatives to do so:
The first is that we offer Thirsty Planet bottles of water in all our Suites. These nifty supplies guarantee donations to Pump Aid. If that didn’t already sound convincing, the packaging is 100% recyclable – from the bottle to the lid and right down to the label (impressive, right?).
We now email all invoices and send all correspondence electronically – when we do print it’s on recycled paper! We have also placed paper magazines with electronic copies too! (Hello, 21st century.)
Did you think we were almost done?
There’s plenty more! We’ve also moved to eco-friendly washing tablets, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid to reduce our water pollution.
Our aparthotels are becoming greener and greener. Not only are our new properties the most eco-friendly, but we’re always in search of new ways of becoming more sustainable.
We have now cut out air conditioning and replaced this with under-floor heating and a combined heat and power unit which provides both hot water and electricity.
We wanted the proof to be in the pudding, so we’re also gifting our guests to a green goody to take home after their stay. We’re supplying a free take-home tote bag so you can shop without the use of plastic bags. Think of it as a gift that keeps on giving!
Our Supercity Shoppers are for life.
Although we’ve taken these steps so far, our aims are still high.
Our plans for the future:
We’re taking our bathroom products to single use, plastic free!
Not only that, we’re sourcing new cleaning products, which are chemical-free and supplied in recyclable packaging.
Supercity are committed to products that only use sustainable palm oil. In fact, we’re working towards eliminating palm oil in all 3rd party products that we buy or use.
That being said, we’re taking steps to transform our in-room menus too. These will be made up of locally sourced, British produce! We’re shopping local and supporting our local economy.
We believe that every little counts, which is why we’d love to hear if you have any recommendations! Email us at Hello@supercityuk.com
