Our most important measures to date are the use of renewable energy in the form of district heating from wood chips and our own thermal solar system, and we obtain our electricity from Tiroler Wasserkraft AG.
A large part of our lighting fixtures has already been converted to economical LED bulbs, which consume up to 90 percent less energy than conventional lamps. In addition, the service life of LEDs is up to 25 times longer than that of their power-hungry predecessors.
We maintain and clean our electronic devices regularly, this increases the lifetime and energy leaks can be fixed quickly.
For cleaning, we rely on products with the Austrian Ecolabel or EU ECO label, which also contribute to your well-being and health, completely without harmful substances.
For new furniture, flooring or textiles, we pay attention to the use of natural materials, preferably with certified environmental standards.
One third of the water consumed in households is due to personal hygiene and showering, which is why we pay attention to shower heads that save water while maintaining showering comfort.
Mobility is a key issue: we create awareness among our guests for the use of public transport, whether traveling by train and bus or locally on site. Söll, together with the Wilder Kaiser region, offers a wealth of public transport options.
In our flower garden you will find a variety of native flowers, herbs and plants, including all the plants after which our apartments are named, such as marigold, sunflower, coneflower, ivy, dandelion, golden balm and elderberry. Enjoy the diversity, as well as numerous native birds and insect species.
We pay attention to the economical use of paper, which is why our guest folders are designed electronically and we also rely almost exclusively on paperless administration in our office.
Waste is valuable raw material for new products. Proper separation is important for both economic and environmental reasons. It is the order of the day to use natural resources responsibly. We collect paper, cardboard, organic waste, packaging made of glass, metal, plastic and composites as well as problematic materials in our waste room
