At Real Hotels Group we integrate social and environmental concerns into our daily operations, so the involvement in the “Reciclar é Alimentar” Project comes very naturally.
We are proud to thank our employees at Grande Real Santa Eulália Resort & Hotel Spa and at Real Marina Hotel & Spa, who recycled 241 kg of Nespresso capsules during 2021, and contributed to a global donation of 256 ton of rice to the Banco Alimentar Contra a Fome.
The “Reciclar é Alimentar” Project was born in Portugal as a way to reuse coffee grounds and has already been replicated in several European countries. When you deliver your capsules for recycling, a Nespresso partner separates the sludge from the aluminum. The aluminum follows the recycling line and is integrated into new objects and the sludge integrates an agricultural compound that is used in rice fields, in Alcácer do Sal. This rice is later purchased by Nespresso and donated to the Food Bank Against Hunger.
It is part of our hotel spirit to take care of people and places. With attitude, commitment, and passion we will create a better world.
