Mattresses are made out of vegetable fibers and water-based foam. They will be recycled at the end of their life cycle and used for insulation panels. Blankets are made of Tencel, which is also a vegetal fiber. Courtesy kits are vegan, organic, and sustainable (refillable dispensers). Straws are out of glass. The glasses are made of Eco-Crystal, made by an Italian company. 14 rooms are dog-friendly, and upon arrival a gift bag of high-quality vegan treats is provided to your pet. Everywhere recycled paper is preferred (from the reception to the laudry room and to the kitchen). All detergents are environmentally friendly and come from a certified sustainable company.
