Easy! Verdinos are our in-house currency that rewards guests who help us to save energy and reduce waste during their stay.
See, while Hotel Verde consumes a fraction of a normal comparable hotel’s water and energy and has a far lower environmental impact, we also hope to have a long-term impact on the mindsets of our guests and other stakeholders. Our aim is to create a shift towards a more sustainable economy, work and personal life for those who visit the hotel, in everything we do.
This is why we developed Verdinos to involve our guests in our sustainability initiatives and reward them for all the small things they do that add up to big energy savings and waste reductions in the long run.
How to earn Verdinos
Hotel Verde guests can earn Verdinos in a variety of ways. Our wonderful receptionists will be able to give you the full list when you check in, but here are a few of the most popular ways to get rewarded at Hotel Verde:
- Take the stairs instead of the lift
- Correctly sort the waste in your room
- Reuse your towels
- Choose not to use additional pillows
- Feed power back onto the grid by means of the power-generating equipment in the Hotel Verde gym
- Take a walk or jog around the wetlands
How to spend Verdinos
One Verdino is currently equivalent to R5 and can be used anywhere in the hotel instead of real money to pay for things such as drinks at the bar or curios and snacks from the deli. In fact, you can also use it to offset your accommodation bill, or a meal at Nuovo Restaurant.
