WE WANT TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOU AND

LESS OF AN IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

At Habitat HQ we take the green road for a more sustainable habitat. We stick to Earth Check standards on energy efficiency and emissions. Our commitment to eliminate carbon output and to educate staff and guests alike on reducing environmental impact has been recognised internationally by the STAY WYSE Green Initiative Award.  We are also certified Climate Action Leaders, which acknowledges our dedication to the reduction of carbon emissions in the tourism industry in Australia. 

MAKE A MEANINGFUL IMPACT

JOIN US TO HELP

PROTECT THE BAY

The Port Phillip Bay is one of the reasons Melbourne is such a special destination. We decided to take action to protect it, and we believe you can help us too! For this reason, we partnered with Port Phillip EcoCentre and their Baykeeper Program. Together, we have crafted monthly activities for our guests looking for memorable experiences:

WE ARE THE FIRST

CARBON NEUTRAL

HOSTEL IN MELBOURNE

We have offset the balance of our carbon output through the purchase of carbon offsets from certified programs. Your stay helps us continue on these programs; however, if you wish to be more involved, you can donate $1 during your check-in to add a leaf to our donations tree. We have also minimised our carbon footprint with the following initiatives:

HABITAT'S BACKPACKING BEES

Bees are industrious pollinators who make a huge impact on the production of vegetables for human and animal consumption. Sadly, in the last decade bee population has been drastically declining.

 

We want to help reinvigorate local bee population, by looking after thousands of them in our very own beehives. In return, they produce fresh honey to treat our guests… enjoy it for breakfast, straight from the hive!
