There are no worries about food miles when you spread honey on your toast at The Chesterfield Mayfair – it will have come all the way from our very own roof! Making our own honey not only reduces our food miles but helps sustain the natural environment – and our bees at The Chesterfield Mayfair do the vital work of pollinating the flowers and plants in the gardens and parks across the centre of the city.
Here at The Chesterfield we have a number of green initiatives to recycle and save on energy. With the decreasing supply of natural resources, we think it is important to reuse and recycle those resources that we already have.
One of our biggest initiatives is to reduce the amount of plastic used across the entire hotel; we are constantly looking for new alternatives to replace these plastics with biodegradable materials.
