Thon Hotel Parken

From waste to uniforms

Thon Hotel Parken in Kristiansand have entered into an agreement with the clothing manufacturer Reparell on the delivery of new uniforms for reception, conference and management.

The uniforms are, among other things, made from recycled plastic from drinking bottles and sea rubbish. The clothing manufacturer Reparell has previously delivered uniforms to both Liseberg and Stenaline.

Both the newly renovated Thon Hotel Norway and Thon Hotel Parken have already adopted the environmentally friendly uniforms.

Hotel director Raymond Kirknes explains that the measure fits in well with the environmentally focused measures the hotels are already making. – We work at all times with environmentally friendly consumption, reduced waste volumes and saved energy.

Many of the moves we make are noticeable to the guests, such as that you can choose not to get new towels every day, or that you are encouraged on signs in the breakfast room to supply yourself several times to avoid food waste, he explains. Kirknes further explains that at all times they make demands on both suppliers and subcontractors when it comes to human rights, working conditions, the environment and anti-corruption.
