Sustainability Plan

Moor Hall Hotel & Spa is a family-owned and run hotel committed to reducing our impact on the environment.

We have been awarded and held for many years the gold status by the Green Tourism Business Scheme in recognition of our sustainable practices and have regular meetings to discuss improving our green practices and implementing more. We have listed below our current activities and our plan for reducing our carbon dioxide emissions, working with local suppliers and supporting like-minded suppliers.

Food & Drink

  • We use locally produced ingredients and fair-trade products in our restaurants

  • We only use plastic free disposable products
  • We source our honey locally and support the beekeepr with local projects
  • Our coffee is supplied by Paddy & Scott's a 100% community-driven craft coffee. Every bag of coffee we use provides a meal for a child in coffee growing regions, so they can focus on studying and not where their next meal will come from
  • Our tea supplier is Birchall - a solar panelled tea factory that provides 100% carbon neutral tea products
  • We stock Brewdog, a company prioritising reducing their emissions and icreasing their sustainability

  • We use 100% recycled paper in our meeting rooms
  • We use recycled plastic pens or pencils in our meeting rooms
  • The foil wrapped toiletries in our bedrooms use 70% less packaging than traditional single use plastics
  • The soap in the showers in the guest bathrooms are via pump dispenserts which reduce single use toiletry bottles

Cleaning

  • We use a chemical free cleaning system
  • We have invested in a new dosing machine which weighs the laundry to use the correct amount of detergent to wash and also reduces washing times
  • Our have a laundry onsite which means we don't need or have daily deliveries of clean laundry like a lot of other hotels

Local Area & Community
