YOGYAKARTA, Indonesia, Jan. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As the hospitality industry has a dramatic environmental impact through energy, water consumption, food waste and electronic waste; Greenhost Hotel -- an eco-conscious boutique hotel located in the renowned Prawirotaman area of Yogyakarta, takes steps to help protect the environment.

Greenhost takes thoughtful considerations in various stages of the operations to minimize any ecological impact, first thing first, by incorporating the rooms and buildings with various up-cycled materials. Greenhost tries to minimize buying new materials and do the best to reuse and repurpose old materials for the hotel. 80% of the hotel is not painted, so there is room for the building to breathe, and the rest of it uses water-based paint.

Apart from the Creative Farming -- a hydroponic garden that produces plants to be consumed in the restaurant, the hotel also buys fresh produces and other restaurant needs from local markets to support the community.

In guest rooms, the electrical capacity is set at 6 Amps. Air Conditioning isn't available in the lobby area to minimize greenhouse gas emissions. The amenities are also locally sourced -- including but not limited to -- the hotel slippers and the rice soaps in the guest bathrooms. One of the artist design rooms incorporates various up-cycled materials to create resilient furniture that changing yesterday's unwanted items into a brand-new style that is both eye-catching and functional.

Maximizing recycled paper for Art Kitchen's menu, - Vegan Friendly Greenhost Boutique Hotel's farm-to-table restaurant, applying a no straw policy, using scrap paper for internal documents to make the best use of paper, placing an electronic waste drop box for guests and local communities are the steps the hotel takes to make it more sustainable.

From time to time, the hotel hosts collaborative creative events, working closely together with influencers and communities that share the same passion and vision. "We are aware that we have much work to do related to eco conscious steps. It should be noted, as a hotel that holds the principle of environmental awareness, we are still taking steps gradually, both to minimize the use of plastic and other environmental impacts. Under Ayom Group -- the Hotel Group that is managing Greenhost, we will also build hotels in Lombok in the next years," adds Mrs. Vivie Elizabeth, Corporate General Manager.
