Caring for our Environment

Living Green is Maldron Hotels & Partners environmental movement which inspires care for our environment as a “Way of Life” throughout our hotels; both for our people and our guests.

At Maldron Hotel Oranmore Galway, we care deeply for our environment and are in the process introducing environmentally-friendly changes to help play our part in protecting it. We have made some changes already and each time you visit us, we hope you will see others implemented. All our staff will be fully trained on our environmental policies and we will keep you updated through our guest portal.

We are encouraging our staff to use the bike to work scheme. All around the hotel we are looking at single-use items to reduce waste and asking our suppliers to minimise packaging and look at sustainable options. We are sourcing local suppliers where we can to cut down on food miles. We have taken the Irish Water Conservation Pledge and reducing water waste which includes slightly reducing flow rates in taps and showers.

Insulation makes a difference to heat loss so we are adding more insulation anywhere it’s practical. We’re changing our flood lighting to low energy LEDs and introducing endocubes in refrigerators to save energy.

Here are a few other ways we are trying to make a difference.

Wildflower Garden

We are creating a wildflower garden in the hotel grounds. Even a small space planted with birds, bees and wildlife in mind can make a big difference, particularly in an urban area. We are looking forward to seeing it in full flower during late spring and summer. We hope you enjoy it too.

E-readers at Reception

Yesterday’s newspapers used to be today’s fish and chip wrappers! Nowadays, newspapers just become yet more recycling. We’re working towards replacing our newspapers in 2021 in reception with e-readers which are more environmentally friendly.

Upcycling for Crafty Kids

Arts & Crafts are really popular in our Crafty Kids Club and instead of buying in supplies, where possible we are recycling and reusing waste products from around the hotel. Cardboard boxes from deliveries and paper packaging are great for junk upcycling. Toilet roll cores make great binoculars, decorations or telescopes. Who knew?!

Help Us During Your Stay

You can assist us to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle during your stay with a few simple steps:

  • Put used towels in the bath/shower that need replacing
  • Hang towels you wish to reuse on the bathroom rail
  • Turn off all lights and electrical appliances whenever you leave your bedroom
  • Save water by not running taps and showers unnecessarily
  • Place all recyclables in the bedroom bin and all general waste in the bathroom bin
