Taking responsibility for the environment and local community is an important part of House Boutique’s broader commitment to sustainable development. We empower communities and promote ecological conservation by encouraging responsible, sustainable tourism.
We integrate the values of responsible tourism in our staff training, and provide staff with added benefits such as English lessons.
We believe fair wages are essential to individual empowerment. House Boutique views a living wage as a benchmark for a decent standard of life and a key tool to ensuring our staff’s personal autonomy.
Hotel Boutique understands that every guest has different needs and we aim to make our hotel facilities available and accessible to all of our guests equally. House Boutique has an accessible entrance, bathrooms and bedrooms. Assistance Dogs/Service Dog are also welcome.
Our domestic hot water and electricity is generated from solar energy harnessed from rooftop panels. We use low-energy light bulbs.
Plastic Free Bottles
We filter our own water. We supply you with free water throughout your stay, and do not sell plastic water bottles.
All your linens are laundered at our ‘Green Laundry’ service where we use environmentally friendly, non-toxic cleaning products.
All the wood you see in the hotel is reclaimed timber so we have not contributed to timber extraction that is now rapidly reaching unsustainable levels in Cambodia.
We use all-natural soaps, organic shampoos and shower gels from Kambio Nature: ingredients are grown at local farms. Hanging in your room are raw Cambodian Golden Silk drapes from a rural community in Angkor Chey.
Too Good Too Waste
Our staff composts food waste through vermicomposting which is then used for our green walls. Our vertical gardens are natural air-filters, creating a cleaner, more invigorating environment for you and our staff.
What Can I Do?
Please see below for tips on how you can play a part in promoting good environmental practices in Cambodia:
Reduce energy by switching off lights and closing windows if heating or air conditioning is on.
Eat local, buy local and see local
Support local producers and services, experience the true flavour of what Cambodia has to offer.
Be Water Wise
Please use water wisely. Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth and adhere to towel policies or other water saving initiatives.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Avoid over-packaged goods or say no to that extra carrier bag. For more information on what is currently recycled within the hotel, please ask one of our team members
Many people don’t realize that their cell phone charger, laptop cable and other electrical plugs drain power while they are plugged in, even if they are not in use. In fact, only 5% of the power used by an average cell phone charger is used to charge the phone – the other 95% is wasted energy.
