Hotel Ribno is the first Slovenian hotel on the Zero Waste path

The Slovenian group Ecologists Without Borders have produced some general Zero Waste guidelines for hotels and event organisers. The first hotel to sign the Zero Waste management agreement was Hotel Ribno in Bled. Matija Blažič, the hotel manager, expects to improve their market position as well as creating savings. The Zero Waste measures, which will be launched shortly, are adapted to Slovenian conditions for following sustainable development.

Hotel Ribno is the first Slovenian hotel on the Zero Waste path

At the end of the Zero Waste tourism project, which was organised by Ecologists Without Borders in 2016, Hotel Ribno in Bled was the first to follow the Zero Waste management guidelines. With their help, the hotel wants to reduce, re-use and recycle more waste over the next two years, instead of throwing it ‘away’. The project and goals will serve as a model for other hotel and event organisers in Slovenia.

Hotel Ribno is very close to the Slovenian Alpine Pearl of Lake Bled, in the idyllic town from which it takes its name. Its location – on the fringes of a spruce forest with abundant birdsong – delights all those who long for peace and relaxation in close contact with nature. The hotel is an excellent starting point for hiking and cycling tours, fishing, adrenaline experiences and other sporting challenges in the nearby area.
