Cleaning products: An easy way to boost sustainability in your STR


In the competitive world of short-term rentals (STR), sustainability is becoming a key differentiator. Guests are increasingly eco-conscious, seeking out accommodations that align with their values. One simple yet impactful way to enhance your property's sustainability is by incorporating products from Composty.

Composty recently pitched at the inaugural (and very successful) Scale Green event for STR owners and managers. Here's a summary of our pitch:

Who are Composty?

Composty is an eco-friendly brand offering a range of compostable cleaning products, including sponges and dishcloths. These products are crafted from natural materials like cellulose, loofah, and organic cotton, ensuring they are fully compostable. This not only helps reduce plastic waste but also promotes a greener lifestyle.

Why STR Businesses Need Sustainable Cleaning Options

  1. Environmental Impact

Composty products significantly reduce non-biodegradable waste. By switching to compostable cleaning tools, STR properties can lower their contribution to landfill waste and plastic pollution, helping preserve the environment for future generations. Compostable products break down naturally, reducing the volume of waste in landfills and preventing harmful microplastics from entering our ecosystems.

  1. Reduction at Landfill and Microplastics

Traditional sponges and cleaning products often contain plastics that take hundreds of years to decompose. During this time, they release methane, a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. If you throw a sponge away today, it could still be impacting the planet's climate in the year 2524. Your great, great, great, great, great, great-grandchildren will not be thanking you for this legacy!

Additionally, microplastics from these products can enter waterways and the digestive systems of marine life, eventually making their way into our food chain. Recent studies have even found microplastics in human blood and breastmilk. Imagine a future where humans could suffer from clogged arteries due to microplastics. It's a sobering thought, and one we can prevent by making smarter choices now.

  1. Enhanced Guest Experience

Visitors take cleaning sponges and cloths for granted but modern travellers are attracted to eco-friendly accommodations. Offering Composty products shows your commitment to sustainability, which can enhance guest satisfaction and loyalty. Guests appreciate knowing their stay is contributing to environmental conservation. The unique features of Composty products, like fun pop-up sponges and stylish loofah dishcloths, add an element of novelty and delight for guests, making their stay more enjoyable and memorable.
