My Hotels Group joins Friends of the Earth

The hotel group with the Green Heart, My Hotels is boosting its commitment to the environment by supporting the vital work of charity, Friends of the Earth.

As part of its latest green initiative My Hotels Group has pledged to donate £5 from every booking made at My Bloomsbury to Friends of the Earth, one of the UK’s leading environmental charities. My Hotels Group is known for their vision to increase awareness of the long-°©‐term benefits of eco living with social and environmental responsibility at the heart of their philosophy. Current green initiatives supporting Friends of the Earth’s core work include:

• Saving Bee’s: Beehives on the rooftop of My Chelsea that contribute to pollination in the local area and raise awareness to the importance of the plight of the honeybee.

• Community Renewables: Solar Panels on the roof of My Brighton which aid in My Hotels Group’s goal to become 100% reliant on sustainable energy.

• Reducing environmental impact: Green Taxi at My Bloomsbury, a high quality hybrid mini cabs company who offer low priced travel across the capital.

Plus a commitment to using non-°©‐toxic cleaning products that are fully biodegradable, non-°©‐corrosive and phosphate free My Hotels pledge that the partnership with Friends of the Earth is not just financial but ethical as they plan to plans to:
• Source all their electricity from a 100% renewable energy provider and commitment to reducing energy use, with specific targets.

• Expand the Beehives on the roof of My Chelsea to coincide with Friends of the Earth’s Bee Cause which aims to tackle the decline of tens of thousands bee’s by creating bee-°©‐friendly spaces.

“We have a vision for each of our hotels to have a green heart. We are constantly making improvements such as our very own rooftop beehive at My Chelsea, to ensure we are being kind to our environment so our guests can also enjoy a sustainable stay with us,” commented Sundip Mace, Marketing Director at My Hotel Group “It was an obvious collaboration to partner with Friends of the Earth, who are Friends of My Hotels.

The more we can contribute to this important cause and raise awareness of issues such as fracking and the plight of the honeybee, the more rewards our world can gain from the long term benefits of a sustainable living.”

Wendy Gupta, Business Innovation Manager at Friends of the Earth commented: ““We’re extremely grateful to have the support of My Hotels.

"The money raised will help fund our campaigns to defend the environment and help build a greener, fairer world for future generations to enjoy.”
