E.c.ho. is an eco-contemporary hotel within the Starhotels group which has again been acknowledged for its achievements in sustainable best practices. To save energy, 80% of lighting is now LED and 72 solar panels have been installed on the roof. The hotel uses only biodegradable carpet and cleaning products, organic furniture and paints for renovation repairs. To further reduce the property’s impact on the environment, in its rooms it offers Fair Trade and eco-certified products and Nordic Swan amenities. Also, paper products including toilet paper and tissue are generally FSC certified and pens are made of recycled plastic.

E.c.ho. has an eco-approach in its dining experience as well, a filtration system allows the bottling of still or sparkling water in place of disposable bottled water and both the restaurant and the bar, in partnership with Eataly (Italian initiative for slow food producers), serves local and seasonal products. In addition, cereals, jams and spreads offered at the breakfast buffet are presented in jars or reusable dishes to minimize waste.
