Energy Saving

At the Milestone we think it’s important to save energy as much as possible. Therefore, we have a dedicated green team that search for new green partnerships and practices to follow.

One of the most unique ways we save energy is through the search engine Ecosia, which can also be used as an extension to your browser. The search engine plants trees as you browse, we encourage our staff and guests to use Ecosia in order to support the planting of more trees.

As well as these new partenerships we understand that it is important to follow the smaller, standard energy saving practices on a day to day basis.

A Guide to Ethical Travel

Our energy saving efforts include:

Light Bulbs

Our lightbulbs have all been changed over to energy efficient light bulbs.

Linen Use

All guests are encouraged to leave towels in the bath if they would like them changed, otherwise they can be reused.

Green Linen Cards

Guests are provided with a ‘Green Card’, should they wish for their sheets to be changed, the card can be placed on the bed. Without the card, the sheets are not changed, therefore saving energy.

Esocia Web Browser

All hotels are encouraged to use the web browser Ecosia, which plants trees with the revenue generated from advertisements. Find the website here.

Biodegradable Items

We have now introduced our new Red Carnation biodegradable coffee cups, for anyone wanting to take away their coffee. And also biodegradable straws to reduce the amount of plastic used.

Insulation

The guest rooms feature the fabric walls, which retains heat in and avoids the use of harmful paints.
