The Muralto Family is commited to reduce the impact that our activity generates every day and we have implemented some initiatives:
We have replaced during 201 all the cleaning references with a new generation products, which contains less contaminant components, biodegradables and identified with the European Ecologic Label.
The paper used for copying, invoicing and printing has the ECO LABEL, which means:
Low air and water pollution during production.
Hazardous substances restricted.
Use of certified fibers from sustainably managed forest.
During 2019 we will leave the comsumption of single-use plastic bottles. We have replaced them with glass or made on biodegradable PLA (a plastic resin made from corn starch), 100% compostable and biodegradable. From 2019 we have planned to eliminate at least 15.000 plastic bottles and 6.000 glasses made on the same material per year.
Ending 2018, all our in room welcome amenities will no longer be packed in plastic. They will be replaced by 100% biodegradable material (recycled paper), as we will do with the current plastic bags for waste, which will be replaced with their equivalent made on biodegradable and compostable material.
And what is most important:
We imply to our staff in order to colaborate impanting this actions and adding their initiatives.
We inform to our guests about what we do regarding the sustainability and about our goals.
