How the Best Western Parkhotel Weingarten implements sustainability in housekeeping

This cooperation shows how easily sustainability can be implemented in hotels. Here is a summary:

Simple implementation for quick success

The Best Western Parkhotel Weingarten has only been planting trees together with Click A Tree since mid-August 2023. This has been very successful, however, with 561 trees already planted.

This shows how quickly and easily a cooperation can be successfully implemented.

The economic added value: saving costs and relieving staff while promoting sustainable commitment

Guests of the Best Western Parkhotel Weingarten have the option of dispensing with the daily cleaning service. As a result, one tree is planted in Ghana for every one that is given up.

In addition to positive media attention, there are also economic benefits:

Saving on cleaning agents

Saving water

Savings in personnel costs

The decreasing number of room cleanings solves the often existing staff shortage. The existing workforce will be additionally relieved.

Best practice example: Travel groups have already planted several hundred trees

The Parkhotel in Weingarten is the destination for many coach tours. With the support of the tour guides, entire tour groups sometimes do without daily cleaning and thus support the project in the tropics.

All guests are also informed about this option for their stay by the reception staff at check-in, because individual guests – whether business or leisure – are also enthusiastic about this project.

Guests are informed about the collaboration with Click A Tree:

Information at check-in

Information board in the lobby

Display stands in the rooms

Digital guest folder
