Recycling is a priority and with a Bokashi wet waste facility and recycling bins for pretty much all waste, very little leaves the hotel for landfills. In accordance with thier responsible tourism policy, waste is dealt with as follows:

  • The hotel has an on-site probiotic waste facility that enables all food waste to be processed and recycled into garden fertiliser for the hotel.
  • The hotel has an on-site water bottling facility that provides drinking water for the bistro & rooms. This cuts out waste from plastic bottles and energy in transporting bottled water.
  • The hotel has a non-biodegradable waste recycling facility and policy; paper, plastic, glass, tin & metal are all recycled.

In an effort to conserve energy, the hotel has solar water heating throughout guest rooms, kitchen and laundry; they only use rechargeable batteries in appliances and they use timers, day-night and movement sensors.

To conserve precious water resources, the Garden suites have grey water recycling that provides water for garden irrigation, reducing the use of chlorinated municipal water. Other sections of the garden are only watered in the early morning / late evening to prevent water loss due to evaporation. They have water-efficient dual-flush toilets and only make use of ecological detergents and cleaning agents in the laundry and kitchen.

The Peech Hotel has over 90 square meters of green space per hotel guest! Their building’s footprint has been kept to a minimum with expansive green space for guests to relax in.

All the rooms have double-layer insulation to reduce heat in summer and heat-loss in winter.

The Peech is proud to be a Fair Trade Tourism certified hotel. They acknowledge establishments that adhere to specific criteria including fair wages and working conditions, fair distribution of benefits, ethical business practice, and respect for human rights, culture and the environment. The hotel was first awarded the certification in 2010.

The Hotel is also a proud signatory to The Tourism Child Protection Code of Conduct. This is a global initiative that provides increased protection to children from sexual exploitation in travel and tourism. The Peech was one of the founder signatories when the code was brought to South Africa.

The Peech Hotel aim to give something back to the community by supporting Little Eden, a local care centre for persons with intellectual disability, most of whom are children. Having been involved since 2008, they know the work Little Eden does is invaluable and that 100% of the support they give is put to the benefit of the children. Guests are invited to add R5 per night to their room bill; The Peech then match all donations on a rand for rand basis. They also encourage guests to support the Pack for a Purpose initiative, which co-ordinates travellers bringing supplies for Little Eden from overseas. The Peech also donate relevant items (linen, crockery etc) and allow the organisation to award a staff member a stay at the hotel every month as an incentive for top performance.
