Mails types – Anglais

Nous vous proposons ici des mails-types que vous pouvez utiliser dans vos échanges avec vos partenaires, pour introduire votre démarche éco-responsable et vos demandes dans ce sens.

Nous n’alourdissons pas ces outils des justifications et explications concernant les pratiques défendues, ainsi que leurs bienfaits : tout cela se trouve dans le guide pour l’action notamment. Vous pouvez piocher dans nos différents outils ce qui vous est nécessaire et l’adapter ensuite à votre situation.


  • L’Hôtellerie

Peut être transmis aux artistes pour appeler à leur vigilance et responsabilité sur ces points.

Si vous contactez un organisateur qui n’a pas encore prévu votre logement

We are committed to an ecologically responsible approach and are looking to reduce the environmental impact of our activities. Therefore, we would like to make some requests regarding our accommodation. May we ask to respond favorably to at least some of the following requests? 

  • Opting for homestay accommodation 
  • Otherwise, booking in a hotel with an eco-label, such as the European Ecolabel or Green Key and / or make the following requests
  • Providing only one bath towel per room 
  • Avoid using bathroom samples wrapped in plastic in every room (unless asked for at the reception desk) – if possible, suggest refillable dispensers 
  • Avoid cleaning for stays lasting less than 4 days (unless the artist requests it)
  • Replacing plastic cups by glasses or, failing that, recycled and compostable paper cups, or no cups at all
  • Avoid having lights on before the guest’s arrival, keep heating and A/C to a minimum (19°C for heating, 25°C for A/C)
  • Serving seasonal, locally-sourced and unpackaged products for breakfast, ideally organic 
  • Providing waste sorting bin

Artists are aware of those requests and know they are coming from us.

I thank you in advance to inform me on any possible measures from your part. I remain at your disposal to talk about that matter.
