Renville beach clean to mark World Oceans Day

To mark World Oceans Day, The Connacht Hotel – owned by the Connacht Hospitality Group – spent the afternoon of Thursday, June 8th giving back to the local community with a beach clean-up in Renville.

For the beach clean-up, The Connacht Hotel partnered with Plastic Oceans, a non-profit whose aim is to end plastic pollution, and they also teamed up with Findlater & Co., Ireland’s leading wine importer and distributor. Coastal Reserve were also in attendance as they are a wine company whose wines are made with the environment very much in mind. The Connacht Hotel are one of the first to do something like this with Coastal Reserve.

Every year, staff from the hotel make time to perform a beach clean-up, and the turnout was really encouraging as 30 people helped pick up waste and give Renville Beach a much-needed refresh.

The beach clean-up at Renville was yet another example of how The Connacht Hotel have taken their sustainability objectives seriously.

The Connacht Hotel offers water-saving shower heads, EV chargers, re-usable coffee cups, and has partnered with sustainability leaders Hometree to help plant an acre of Irish rainforest. They have also achieved the Green Hospitality Silver Award for all their sustainable achievements.

In fact, The Connacht Hotel have a dedicated Green Team whose mission is to help the hotel achieve carbon-neutral status.

Green Team Lead Natasha Chuyeva was full of praise for the staff who turned up to help out at the beach clean in Renville.

“Seeing all these people come together to do good for the local beach is a truly inspiring thing. It’s easy to think about the climate crisis as a huge problem that’s too big to tackle, but small changes when done collectively can have a huge impact. This beach clean is proof of that.

“We can always each do more to think about the environment – and there are always eco-friendly alternatives that we can adopt. The beach clean-up was a huge success, and it was great to partner with our friends at Coastal Reserve, Plastic Oceans, and Findlater,” Natasha said.
