We’re Committed to Sustainability – LUVE by TRYP
Posted by James Tubb on 16 April 2019
TRYP by Wyndham Dubai is revolutionizing sustainability in the Middle East!
Our concept of LUVE by Tryp was setup and launched throughout 2018 and the beginning of 2019 to focus on reducing waste, reusing materials and giving back to the community, guests and staff. We are making long term commitments to reduce impacts on the UAE and environment and we have unveiled the most sophisticated green initiatives of any hotel in the Middle East.
We Have 100% Removed PET Plastic Bottles
Through installing Water Logic water dispensers throughout the front of house and heart of house we have 100% removed PET bottles from the hotel saving over 306,000 plastic bottles from going into landfill every year. Plastic bottles have been replaced with glass water bottles and once used, they are cleaned, refilled and labelled in-house.
Paper Towelling Made from 100% Recycled Local Cardboard
We are the first hotel in the Middle East region to use sustainable paper towelling manufactured from recycled cardboard. From toilet paper, to tissues and hand towels, it’s all manufactured locally in the UAE from local recycled cardboard (including our hotel’s cardboard), exclusively created for TRYP by Wyndham Dubai.
Organic and Recycled Bathroom Amenities
Our bathroom amenities consist of up to 86% organic ingredients for all our soaps and lotions, extracting essence from olive leaves. All packaging and dispensers are also made using 100% recycled plastics. Combs and toothbrush handles are also entirely made of recycled materials.
Water & Power Conservation Through Specialized Taps and Showerheads
By installing the right shower head and tap aerators in guest and staff bathrooms we are saving over 62% of water, reducing consumption of an average of 17 litres per minute to 6.43 litres per minute. This will also reduce the amount of power we use to heat and maintain the water.
Water Saving Flush Tanks
Installation of x 250ml water bottles into the flush tank of each of our 680 toilets around the hotel means water consumption is reduced every time the toilet is flushed. This alone saves around 528 gallons of water per day and 15,840 gallons per month.
Eco-friendly Cleaning Products
We have introduced 100% eco-friendly and readily biodegradable products from Diversey. They are reducing the use of products with chlorine bleach and petrochemical derivatives. These more natural products have demonstrated performance and are less irritating to guests, employees, and the environment.
Healthier for the Earth and Heart – Menu Selection
Through integrating more ingredients in menus that use organic produce, hormone-free meats and vegan and vegetarian items we offer guests healthier and just as delicious food options.
In the winter months we plant our own herb garden to use on the dishes we serve in Local Restaurant, Bar & Terrace. Keeping it Local, we reduce reliance on external suppliers.
These are just some of our initiatives and we will be unveiling many more! Stay tuned to find out developments with our Luve by Tryp CSR Initiatives!
