Corporate Social Responsibility

IT’S NOT JUST OUR GARDENS THAT ARE GREEN!

The Cumbria Park Hotel embraces Corporate Social Responsibility as part of its duty in helping to protect your environment and encourage those whom we trade to do the same. We strive to play an active part and support the community in which we operate.

All of the Cumbria Park Hotels associates are aware of the policy and are fully supportive in ensuring that proactive efforts and ideas are initiated

A great example of what the team are doing to go the extra mile is our waste recycling – all cardboard is bailed on site and collected for recycling along with our glass bottles. Waste oil from the kitchens is converted into diesel engine fuel and organic waste from the kitchens is used for compost in our gardens.

If you get a chance it might be worth looking at our head Chef’s conservatory where he grows fruit and vegetables that are used in the restaurant.

When staying you can help us help our environment by following some basic “Hotel Eco-Etiquette’

Get Unplugged: Many people don’t realize that their mobile phone charger, laptop cable and other electrical plugs drain power whilst they are plugged in, even if they are not in use. In fact, only 5% of the power used by an average mobile phone is used to charge it – the other 95% is wasted energy!

Seize the day: Take advantage of natural light and our long summer evenings as much as possible – it is as renewing for your mood as it is for our planet

Chill out: We let you adjust the room temperature. Always set the temperature around level 2-3 in winter and level 0-1 in the summer to maximize both energy efficiency and personal comfort

Lights out: Keeping the bathroom light off overnight will not only make a big I pact but it will help you sleep better. Traveling with a nightlight is an easy, eco-friendly alternative.

Save while you sleep: How many of you change your linen every day at home? Please let your housekeeper know if you don’t want your linens to be refreshed daily

Use common sense: Be sure to turn off your lights and TV and make sure taps are not dripping before leaving your room.
