Since 1929 the Geyer family has run the GAIA HOTEL. "Come as a guest, leave as a friend" is the hotel's motto. Friendship begins at reception. Guests are welcomed and bidden farewell as friends of the house. The memorable atmosphere is created from a careful balance of art and tradition.
We choose ORGANIC
Regardless of diet, organic foods and products are a smart priority. Opting for organic is an effective choice for personal and planetary welfare. We made this choice and are buying organic products - bursting with more nutrition, taste, and sustainable ingredients. This is our direct contribution for immediate well-being, happiness and the hopeful future of generations to come.
We are aiming to become a zero waste hotel by 2020 and have already implemented several programs. Zero waste means managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume of waste and toxicity. Here's what we are doing:
- Giving our used coffee grounds to the association URBAN AGRICULTURE BASEL, who grow gourmet mushrooms in coffee grounds
- Donating our stale bread to the ZOO BASEL - mainly for the elephants
- Collecting and delivering our used soaps to a foundation that is called SAPOCYCLE, who recycle and redistribute the soaps to improve sanitary conditions of children and families in need
- Composting our organic waste by means of a WORMUP composter
- Using eco-friendly and non-toxic cleaning products by STEINFELS-SWISS
