Clayton hotel - caring for the environment

Living Green

At Clayton Whites Hotel, we are fully committed to and excited by our contributions towards reducing the impact of our business on the environment.

We are currently engaged in a range of activities including the reduction of single-use plastics, the effective management of waste, the minimizing of consumption of gas and electricity to reduce our carbon footprint, and various community socially responsible projects.

With the support of our Central Office team, our hotel green team looks forward to having a very positive impact on the environment in the years ahead.


All our electricity is purchased from 100% renewable sources. We converted to LED Lighting and Sensors reducing electricity usage.


We have introduced further waste segregation systems throughout the hotel. Correct segregation of waste such as food provides fertiliser and can be converted to renewable energy.


All our takeaway coffee cups and lids are 100% recyclable.
Plastic Straws have been replaced with paper straws.
We’ve removed paper towels from public toilets.


Replaced taps in all public toilets.
Introduced aerators in all bedroom wash hand basins and showers resulting in significant reductions in the amount of water used.


We have removed single-use plastic toiletries and replaced them with an all-in-one product.
Removed pads and pencils from guest bedrooms.
We have changed our linen policy to assist with water and energy consumption.

The Future

We have established a strong Green Team Committee within Clayton Whites Hotel and, with guidance from Dalata Hotel Group, we undertake to identify environmental issues and collectively do our best to develop new initiatives to help minimise the impact tourism has on the environment.

Our plans include:

  • Undertake a small restoration project to help the local community
  • Collect coffee grinds to offer as fertiliser for plants at home
  • Introduce a herb garden in our courtyard

These are just a few examples but we still have much more to do!
