Fairmont Banff Springs recycles all refundable beverages, glass, cardboard, paper, tin, plastic, metal, electronics, shipping pallets, tires, propane cylinders, mattresses, cooking oil and Nespresso pods. The hotel also has a robust composting program. Fairmont Banff Springs participates in Soap for Hope, where unused bathroom amenities are donated and repurposed for those in need. The hotel actively purchases environmentally friendly to-go cups, containers and utensils for our dining venues. We have proudly eliminated the use of plastic water bottles in all guest rooms and have installed water bottle fill-stations throughout the hotel to encourage guests to enjoy our clean, delicious tap water instead of single-use plastic water bottles.
In 2009, Accor launched the “Plant for the Planet” program, which encourages guests to reuse their towels for more than one night, and invests half of the laundry savings into the funding of reforestation projects worldwide.
