ENVIRONMENT

Generally when hotels talk to you about the environment this involves a small card asking you to use your towel more than once. The cynics will rightly see that this is a simple plan to reduce work instead of trying to really preserve our environment. During the renovation of the Nordet, we were in a unique position to update the systems to facilitate our use of valuable resources and enhance your experience! Here’s a list of the changes we’ve made and the systems we’ve put in place that impact our natural resources:

In order to optimize the service offer of the motel, modifications were necessary. Residual waste reduction is considered using composting. We added water reducers on the showerheads and toilets to the sanitary services. The use of alternative energy such as solar panels (thermal) reduces our ecological footprint.

In its quality policy, the Nordet places great emphasis on local and organic purchases. From its installation in this exceptional place, we wanted to ensure that the Nordet is part of the community honoring the work of local artisans.

During the renovation, only noble materials will be used such as wood for the ceiling and the floor. In addition, our choice was directed towards wood from the region to reduce transport and promote the local economy, one of the basic principles of sustainable development.

As for sanitary ware, to reduce the impact, we used only recycled ceramics.

We are concerned about the very large use of water in our sanitary facilities and shower rooms. While wanting to reduce our consumption, we do not want our customers to feel it negatively. That’s why we opted for the installation of high-efficiency water-saving aerators in shower heads and faucets. According to studies, these should allow a saving of water of nearly 80%.

In addition we use soap dispensers and use local bio soap.

We reused some bath bases, toilets, faucet sinks to reduce overconsumption during the renovation.

The paints that were applied were without VOCs.

The luminaires that have been renewed use low-energy bulbs.

The selected TVs are low energy consumption.

All furniture has been greatly reused and updated with a more contemporary design.

We understand that the use of single dose coffee is pleasant in accommodation and simple for the clientele however, we do not want to participate in throwing a ton of pods. We therefore use reusable capsules and our coffee is the coffee of our area and is distributed as soon as customers arrive.

The Nordet is proud to announce that a charging station for electric cars is available

We do the washing and drying of the sheets and towel on the premises This promotes “when we are lucky”  the use of solar dryer (clothesline)

Most of our waste get composted into a strick and clean area outside of these premises.

For the whole menu we ideally favor buying from our local and organic vendors.

It is not always possible to buy certain foods locally, but our vision is to do it as much as possible and encourage our local vendors.
