Did you know that, simply by choosing to stay at The Ruby Collection, you’re making the world a little greener?
Ruby’s Green and Clean Environment initiative targets some of the key ways hotels and apartments can damage the environment, making smarter switches to reduce our impact.
A typical apartment can consume an average of 400L of water, every single day – our rooms have been fitted with 5- star water efficient showerheads, and low flush toilets to reduce water usage. We also give guests the option to opt out of daily housekeeping services, helping to conserve water by reducing the frequency of laundering linens.
All Ruby apartments have been fitted with energy efficient lighting and Vintech Systems’ Interel GRMS smart room technology, which automatically switches off the lights when you’re not in the room, and shuts off the air-conditioning unit when it recognises that doors and windows have been left open (you’ve probably already noticed signage about this in your room).
WASTE MANAGEMENT AND RECYCLING – SAY NO TO PLASTIC
Our Ruby recycling plan separates garbage into categories like food waste, paper, plastic, tin foil and more, and our kitchen and housekeeping teams use bio-degradable products and cleaning supplies to support our waste management program. We also only provide bio-degradable takeaway packing, from knives and forks to coffee and juice cips, and use BioCups coated in the plant-based bioplastic, IngeoTM, that can be commercially composted. By making this simple switch, the Ruby Collection – and you! – are helping decrease the use of crude oil (which is used to make plastic) and is creating compost rather than contributing to even more destructive, nonbiodegradable rubbish.
KEEPING THE OUTDOOR AREA GREEN AND CLEAN
Our plants and trees within the gardens at Ruby are suited to the local climate, soils, and natural water availability. Ruby is a 100 per cent non-smoking property.
