Green information for our guests

DEAR GUESTS!

WE WARMLY WELCOME YOU!

WE WISH, THAT YOUR STAY IS REMEMBERED IN GOOD SPIRITS AND THAT WE MAKE IT AS PLEASURABLE FOR YOU AS POSSIBLE.

Our accommodation received the environmental certificate GREEN KEY in 2022; industry’s leading standard of excellence in environmental responsibility and sustainable operation. With this certificate we honor and follow strict international criteria established by Foundation for environmental education (FEE). By receiving the Green Key certificate we became part of “Green Family,” globally recognized for promoting

SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS PRACTICES AND THE PROTECTION OF NATURAL RESOURCES.

Statement:

  • We do our best to act environmentally consciously
  • We inform our friends, family and guests to do the same
  • We diligently take into considerations tips and solutions for responsible handling of natural resources and efficient energy use

We are aware that such handling is first and foremost valuable for the environment. We don’t need to do much to act more responsibly to the environment. We don’t have to say no to leisure and other things we enjoy to do. For the most part, those are simple and barely noticeable acts. But with a few simple precautions, we an collaboratively make this world a better place to live and leave it in equally good shape to our descendants.

We ask you to bear with us a s we present you with “Environmental Sparks.” Namely, awareness of our guests is our duty in obtaining the environmental sign. We will be glad to see you put our propositions into action. As well we are happy to hear all of your further suggestions and comments. We will try to either implement them or forward them to competent institutions.

Sincerely,

Hotel Triglav Bled

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL SPARKS

TAP WATER IS DRINKABLE

A person needs about 80 liters of fresh water per day for sustainable living. In Slovenian households, we use somewhere from 130 to 200 liters per person daily. Only flushing the toilet comes up to 2 to 8 liters of fresh water, while for cooking we use about 6 liters of water per day. If we add to this the industrial use of water, the numbers increase to 300 to 500 liters per person per day. We use water economically, so turn off the tap during brushing your teeth and adjust the current according to your needs.

WE ARE HAPPY TO HOST YOU IN AN AREA WITH DRINKABLE TAP WATER. THE WATER IS AS CLEAN AS IT GETS. FILL UP YOUR GLASSES AND FLASKS AND DRINK TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH.

WE SEPARATE WASTE ACCORDINGLY

We always separate the waste to the designated bins. Never leave the waste in nature or flush it down the toilet. Prevent pollution of the environment and drinking water. In your room you will find two separate bins for packaging and bio waste. In your bathroom is a bin for mixed waste. All other waste (paper, glass, metal…) we collect at the reception. You may bring the waste down or leave it on your desk.

ALWAYS SEPARATE THE WASTE TO ITS DESIGNATED BINS.

REDUCE PLASTIC USE

Plastic presents a great threat to the environment and humanity. Slovenia in 2020 produced 489 kg of municipal waste per resident  on average. Yearly individual use of single-use plastic bags is 100 to 300 pieces. Globally we produce more and more plastic, out of which 6,4 million tons lands in nature. Plastic particles intrude in human and animal bodies and gravely endanger our health.

AVOID USING SINGLE-USE PLATIC.

TURN OFF THE LIGHTS

We installed LED lighting to reduce electricity use. Save energy, turn off the lights and electronic devices when you are not in the room.

EMPTY ROOM IS NOT AFRAID OF THE DARK

REDUCE CARBON FOOTPRINT

Our accommodation is well-isolated and it has energy efficient windows. We always close the doors and windows behind us. We recommend airing the rooms in the morning and evening, closing the shutters in the warmer months and preventing heat to enter. By doing so, the rooms keep cool, fresh with no need for extra cooling by AC and furthermore reducing carbon footprint.

EXPIRIENCE THE RICH LOCAL NATURAL AND CULTURAL HERITAGE

Natural and cultural heritage in Slovenia is extraordinary – visit, experience and taste it. Information on attractions, sights, gastronomy and habits are always available with our staff at reception.

EXPLORE THE ENVIRONMENT BY GREEN MOBILITY

Upper Carniola, wider Bled region and surrounding villages are ideal for cycling and hiking. Each trip and sightseeing done by bike or foot is environmentally friendly. You get to know the area up close and connect with the locals. Trekking bikes are available free of charge to all our guests and are served on a “First come” basis. Bike & Equipment rental info along with cycling and hiking routes suggestions is available at the reception.

REDUCE DETERGENT USE

Hotels all around the world use a ton of detergents and millions of liters of water daily to wash single-used towels and linen.

WE CHANGE THE TOWELS AND LINEN IN THE ROOM AFTER EACH CHECK-OUT, EACH FOURTH DAY OF YOUR STAY OR WHEN SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED.
