All we hear at the moment is the vegan lifestyle people are adopting for a better life. Thanks to New Year Resolutions! A fully vegan hotel room has opened in The Hilton Bankside, using vegan materials and products for an eco-conscious traveller.
People who have taken into the plant-based lifestyle, of course, worry about what they wear, what toiletries the use and where they lay their head at night.
Hilton’s cruelty-free room experience starts from the moment you step through the door, with a plant-based check-in desk and keycard made Piñatex a natural leather made from the fruit’s cellulose fibres that have been extracted from its leaves.
The suite refurb so that all materials used are vegan and environmentally-sourced. The feather down has been replaced with a Buckwheat pillow made with 100% organic buckwheat hulls, while the stone-grey flooring is made with 100% renewable and sustainable Moso Bamboo and carpets are made from organic and responsibly-sourced cotton. The seating and headboard are vegan too, made from the Piñatex leather used to make the keycard.
No doubt the menu is fully vegan as well as the mini bar, with vegan snacks galore from Graze and Deliciously Ella.
The room became open for bookings online and like many vegan lifestyle choices, there’s a hefty price tag.
The rate for the room is £549 per night (including VAT) while a room of the same size that isn’t vegan costs way more less.
A spokesperson from The Vegan Society, Danielle Saunders said in a statement: “We’re thrilled to see the concept come to life. The hotel has carefully selected different plant-based features with exceptional attention to detail and we’re pleased to see that those who live the vegan lifestyle are now able to expand their plant-based options with the opportunity to enjoy vegan travel.”
