Green Key awarded GLO Hotel Sello is located at the Sello Shopping Centre in Espoo, Finland. They implemented a new recycling process in the GLO Hotel restaurant (GLO Grill Kitchen) which became an an example for other businesses in the Shopping Centre.
GLO Grill Kitchen has worked hard to increase the amount of recyclable waste. The kitchen is busy and serves several hundreds of customers every day. When the recycling started, it initially felt like an extra task in the hectic daily work. The kitchen appointed a recycling ambassador among them whose task was to help everybody keep in mind the importance and effects of recycling. Recycling gradually became an inherent part of the daily routines: the glass jars and metal cans are rinsed or soaked, and recycled immediately and not as an extra task. Now the staff feels that recycling is easy and a natural part of their daily work. They sort all bio and energy waste, glass, cardboard and metal. Also porcelain waste is separated. As a result the mixed waste container in the kitchen has become obsolete.
Restaurant Manager Liisa Tiussa is very proud of the results and especially for the fact that their kitchen now works very efficiently and benefits the environment. Great work GLO Hotel Sello!
