SUSTAINABILITY AT THE LODGES
Our place in the world is a taonga. Here at The Lodges at Transport World, we’re deeply committed to embedding practices that ensure we’re caring for our people and our place. We take sustainability seriously, and we support initiatives such as the Tiaki Promise that enshrine these principles into our day-to-day operations.
How do we do that? Our guests will notice our sustainability efforts in a number of ways. Take the toiletries we provide in each of our boutique apartments here at The Lodges. We use amenities that are part of the Beyond Skin Deep initiative – which aims to achieve zero bathroom amenity waste. Not only does the initiative recycle plastic bottles, transforming them into fenceposts used by New Zealand’s agricultural industry. Bathroom soap waste is recycled into hygenic new bars, which are distributed to vulnerable communities: improving sanitation, saving lives, and making a meaningful difference to whole communities.
Thoughtful touches in our kitchens are just as earth-conscious. We use Nespresso pod coffee machines: and we love the ‘sustainable consumption’ philosophy that believes small acts can have large positive impacts. Nespresso gives its coffee capsules a second life – the aluminimum it uses for its pods are part of a programme that means every capsule is infinitely recyclable.
We continually strive to make improvements that will ensure the footprint we leave behind is as light as possible.
We always welcome guest feedback. If you identify any other potential sustainability opportunities during your stay at The Lodges at Transport World, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team.
