The feel good factor – hotel products with a conscience

As a property owner or manager one of your main priorities is ensuring your guests have everything they need, and feel pampered during their stay. But, imagine if you could do this, and feel good about making a positive impact on our planet and the people who live on it!

Here at National Hotel Supplies we are proud to stock a wide range of beautiful products that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. Let us tell you about just a few…

Sun Bear Sunscreen

Sun Bear Sunscreen has to be one of our all-time favourite sun protection products on the market. Why you ask? Is it because 80% of the products go towards protecting Sun Bears? Or the fact that it’s not tested on animals? Of course, but there’s more, it’s also:

  • Palm oil free
  • Coral reef friendly (does not contain oxybenzone)
  • PABA free (which can cause liver damage and skin allergies)
  • Vegan friendly
  • Paraben free
  • Rainforest derivatives free
  • Produced using solar power
  • Comes in fully recyclable packaging.

Aussie Biscuits

This Australian owned biscuit company is a business enterprise operated through The House With No Steps, helping create employment opportunities for people with a disability. Aussie Biscuits are yummy, and their community spirit, ethical values and social conscience is truly something to celebrate.

Here’s a quick video about this very special social enterprise.

Wallawa Botanical Skincare Products

The stunning Wallawa range of botanical skin and body care products are one of our best sellers, and it’s not just because they smell and feel nice!

They are made with Indigenous Australian cosmetic flora extracts and packaged in 100% recyclable plastic. The ingredients are biodegradable, which means they will naturally breakdown when exposed to the elements.

Fairtrade products

It’s amazing to think that your choice of hotel amenities could impact the lives of some of the poorest people in the world.

For a product to be certified ‘Fairtrade’ it must meet international standards. These standards ensure the farmers and workers get a fair price for their products and services, invest in their community and have sustainable practices.

One Fairtrade coffee, tea, hot chocolate and sugar was the first range of PCU Fairtrade hot beverage sachets designed specifically for the hospitality industry. It’s a great way to make an ethical choice, and your customers will enjoy a great cuppa while knowing the bloke that grew it gets paid a fair price for his hard work.

As far as body care products go, the eco.logic* Fairtrade hair and body range is not only officially certified, but it’s also environmentally friendly. The bottles are made from 100% recycled milk bottles.
