Morzine signs up to waste reduction programme

More than 30 chalets in the French ski resort of Morzine have signed up to a new programme to reduce water and energy consumption during the 2010-2011 ski season. The team from muchbetteradventures.com is working with chalet and hotel owners in Morzine to help them reduce their water and energy consumption. The programme aims to show them how small changes, such as using low flow showerheads, checking for leaks regularly and using energy efficient light bulbs, can make a positive difference to the environment as well as saving up to 25 per cent on utility bills. At the start of the winter season a training workshop will be held to ensure staff understand the issues and to highlight best practice examples that they can use in their daily operations. “Everyone I have met associated the programme has been really positive, and the info and advice provided makes it much easier to source and implement ideas,” said More Mountain Jon Dredge. “We all rely on the snow for our businesses to function, so hopefully we can work together to share ideas and every chalet operator involved will be able to reduce their energy and water consumption in some way. It has the added benefit of cutting costs, which is important in the current market.”
