FROM ORANGE TO GREEN
Our project towards sustainability
With its 92,000 hectares of urban green areas, Rome ranks among the greenest cities in the world. To preserve this condition, help minimize our impact on the environment and guarantee safety and eco-sustainability standards that make every stay green, we have started a process of constant changes in recent years.
“From Orange to Green” represents in 4 simple words our commitment to green and sustainable tourism in Rome. This leads to a greater awareness of environmental and social issues, the choice of suppliers and business partners who look in the same direction and encourage guests to do the same.
WATER AND ENERGY SAVING
The use of new ecological procedures and products and LED bulbs minimizes the environmental impact, while energy-saving devices, such as the air conditioning system and magnetic keys in the rooms, make it possible to optimize the consumption. Finally, flow reducers for taps and the choice of showers helped us to significantly limit water waste.
To reduce the use of single-dose plastic, we have chosen corn starch, recycled paper and organic cotton accessories. The initiatives also include the rechargeable dispensers of the Grown Alchemist organic courtesy line, awarded with the “Positive Luxury – Brand to trust” price, and the Filette aluminum bottles of water that guests can fill using the dispenser in the structure.
Our commitment to the environment also affects our food choices. We mainly select 0km seasonal products in support of local producers, thus helping to minimize CO2 emissions caused by the transport of goods. Furthermore, the launch of “Hortus 47″ project, with over 3 hectares of land in the greenery of Tuscia, will make it possible to bring to the table oil, fruit and vegetables of our production, in the name of seasonality.
The central location of 47 Boutique Hotel allows you to easily reach the main attractions of the city on foot or by public transport. We also promote sustainable mobility by offering a free bike rental service for our guests, who can discover the beauties around us with no stress. Among the activities that can be booked in the structure, there are private walking tours with certified guides: another green and sustainable way to get to know Rome and its history.
With the implementation of the Green Program, we also limit the excessive use of detergents, water and energy: our guests can give their contribution, by requesting the change of linen only when necessary. We also recommend removing the electronic key once out of the room, to turn off the lights and air conditioning, thus contributing to energy savings.
