The Good Roll
Partner Activity: Worldwide there are 2.3 milliard people who do not have excess to safe and clean toilets, that is one third of the world population. Furthermore, 270.000 trees are felled every day for the production of toilet paper. Therefore The Good Roll has been created, an initiative to tackle both problems. The mission of The Good Roll is: safe and clean toilets for everyone! Also, the Good Roll gives 50% of the net profit to build toilets in different countries in Africa. The Good Roll also makes toilet roll from recycled paper, making it 100% tree-friendly.
Our contribution: Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin replaces the “normal” toilet rolls with the toilet rolls from The Good Roll.
Partner Activity: From 1 July 2021, the Dutch Government decided to add a €0,15 deposit on small plastic bottles. In this way, supermarkets are encouraged to reuse these plastic bottles, thus reducing litter. A refundable bottle has a deposit logo on the label. When returning a refundable bottle, the barcode must be easy to scan, the bottle must be undamaged and in its original shape. In addition, preferably the cap is still on, so that it can also be recycled.
Our contribution: Since today, refundable bottles can also be returned at Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin. The bottles can be deposited in the predestined tonnes in the hotel. However, only the small 0,5L plastic bottles can be handed in. The deposit of the bottles then goes to MadeBlue. For every 0,5L bottle, 500L of water is realised in developing countries.
