Sustainability

 

At Sheraton Cascais Resort we care about a sustainable future
 

Developing healthy and sustainable practices that preserve the planet on which we live is a must for everyone, so the Sheraton Cascais Resort has created a set of initiatives that aim to reduce environmental impacts.

 

In the hotel:

We use river waters for laundry purposes;
We use sunlight through solar panels;
Use of LEDs instead of conventional lights.

In rooms / apartments:

Window sensors that automatically turn off the air conditioning;

Bathroom and kitchen faucets that help to reduce water flow.

Internal practices:

Our employees have an active role in social initiatives, namely the planting of trees or the association with universal movements such as “Earth Hour”;

We are part of the “Portugal Business Council Marriott” group, which, within various initiatives, aims to promote policies that benefit the environment.

Food & Beverage:

Refood's food source partner, reducing food waste. In 2019 we donated more than 350 meals;
Drinks and cocktails without mixers;
The option of biodegradable straws;
Use of ecological packaging;
Reduction of plastic bottles and cups.

Chef's Garden

Consists of 6 cultivation beds with self-irrigation, our Chef's Garden allows the planting of a variety of vegetables and herbs, throughout the year, according to their respective seasonality.

Main advantages:
• Saves time - The water tank ensures autonomy for up to 3 weeks;
• It produces more - Up to 50% more than a conventional vegetable garden;
• Easy to maintain - Reduces the risk of over-watering;
• Water-saving - Consumes up to 80% less water than a conventional vegetable garden.

We respect the seasonality of our ingredients

Since seasonality is one of our concerns, planting rotation in our Chef's Garden is usually every 3 months.
Currently, our vegetable garden produces the following ingredients: onions, which make up our delicious mashed potatoes; French garlic, red and yellow beets and coriander that are part of all dishes that have mini vegetables; red and yellow chard and Kalista lettuce for our fresh salads.

“Let's go to the garden!”

To involve our customers in the sustainable dynamics of the Sheraton Cascais Resort, we offer the activity “Vamos à Horta!”.
Every Thursday, at 10:00 AM, you can meet our Chef in the garden and learn more about it.
