Eklo is a 100% French entrepreneurial project that aims to be more humane and more respectful of the planet, with the ambition of limiting its impact on the environment as much as possible.
Eklo selects its suppliers so that they share the same values and is committed to favouring the short circuit for its supplies.
At Eklo, we are eco-friendly, we make ecology rhyme with conviviality while remaining very affordable!
Being an actor in an eco-responsible hotel industry commits Eklo to a virtuous approach, with the objective of progressing every day.
Eklo chose the Nantes-based company Betterfly Tourism to evaluate and control the environmental and energy performance of its hotels through the environmental label. This official system, supported by the ADEME and the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition, enables clients to be informed about the ecological impact of a night spent in the establishment with breakfast. Eklo Bordeaux obtained the A rating on the basis of the following four indicators:
Cigarette butt collection
Eklo integrates the recycling of cigarette butts in its environmental policy and chooses the company Eco Mégot, a start-up committed to the social and solidarity economy. Installation in our hotels of solidarity ashtrays, manufactured by a social integration project, management of the green collection of cigarette butts, followed by recycling and recovery of paper, tobacco and filter materials.
Recycling of bio-waste
A CSR company that offers a new competitive solution for sorting and selective collection of bio-waste. We recycle the bio-waste from our restaurant as well as that from breakfast, 1200 tons of organic waste, which means 380 kg of compost distributed in 4 months and 512 kg of CO² not emitted!

Eklo is committed to biodiversity with a CSR, ecological and friendly project in partnership with BeeCity, a specialist in urban beekeeping. We produce our own honey sold in our hotel.
