"When we got started, it was just natural to make the question “what is the sustainable option” as part of every decision. This isn’t about some high-flying theoretical stuff or useless greenwashing, it’s a practical issue. We change how the world rolls by making good choices. Less hype, more action, please." - Niko, Cofounder for Bob W.
Get the lowdown of how we are rethinking sustainability in hospitality.
Locally sourcing is a win-win for everyone - Not only are we able to support local craftsmanship and create spaces that are seriously authentic and local, we’re also cutting down on transport emissions and waste from excess packaging.
We’ve estimated that around 70% of furniture in our suites are locally sourced.
All Bob W suites run on 100% renewable energy produced from clean natural resources - like wind, sun and water. Simple as that. Bye bye fossil fuels!
There’s nothing like “throw away”, only “throw somewhere else” and we don’t want to leave a mess after ourselves. You won’t find paper towels or almost any single-use-plastics in our suites. We’ve replaced everyday items with e.g. biodegradable equivalents, a more sustainable option without cutting on comfort. Simple small things with a meaningful impact.
In choosing our vendors we expect transparency and an equally passionate approach to ecological sustainability. To take things up a notch, we request our vendors to choose green delivery options and to be mindful when packing our orders - skip the plastic wrapping (OBV)!
Having close relationships and an open dialogue about sustainability is important to us.
We recognize that we operate on a platform that allows for great international exchange. By introducing our guests to sustainable options, we’re pumped about sharing knowledge and inspiring to greener deeds across borders.
Within this, we want to encourage our guests to express their ideas of improvement. The Bob W way is an answer to a shared concern for our planet, reacting to a need to change, always striving to be better and rooting for a new normal.

Hey! We don’t just talk. Here are some things we’ve done thus far:
Oh, and also our Bob W shirts are made of recycled textiles by the Finnish brand Pure Waste - each shirt saves 2700L of water and are responsibly made.
Psst! Did you know that the Matri factory runs on solar panels for most of the year.
