For hotel staff, plastic gloves are often the (annoying) daily companion. Covid-19 has changed the need for hygiene among staff and hotel guests alike: Staff want to be more careful at every touch point with guests. Guests expect higher standards in the hygiene concepts of their hosts.
Hygiene for hotels
Moved by the "New Normal" on the subject of hygiene, many hotels are now looking for a sustainable and visually appealing approach to gloves as well. The ElephantSkin Classic glove is especially suited to the needs of the hotel industry. These are not only effective against cross-contamination, but also prevent mountains of plastic waste and protect the hands of your employees.
Where can ElephantSkin gloves be used in hotels?
Reception and lobby
Most reception desks nowadays are equipped with a protective glass wall. Nevertheless, objects and documents are exchanged between the staff and the guests at the reception. This exchange is the perfect opportunity for germs to spread and multiply from person to person (to person to person...). Therefore, the use of gloves for receptionists is recommended - but why not switch to a more sustainable and at the same time elegant solution here? After all, the reception is the first impression that guests get about the hotel.
Restaurant and Bar
This is where plastic gloves are most commonly used. If gloves in service are not changed after each point of contact, they quickly become a hub for passing germs from one table to the next.
The look of plastic gloves is a pain for many hotels: In an effort to provide perfect service, the hotel and the employees* are shown from their best side. This is expressed with high-quality decor and furniture, right down to the work clothes. Plastic gloves do not match the high-quality service and devalue it with their cheap appearance.

Household and cleaning
Often plastic gloves in housekeeping cause skin irritation and piles of waste. ElephantSkin gloves are a chance for hotel operators to prevent skin diseases among their employees.
In addition, ElephantSkin gloves reduce the mountains of waste. The gloves are reusable, as they can be washed at least 30 times without losing their effectiveness.
Partners from the hotel industry confirm the ElephantSkin offer:
Hotel Sacher Salzburg uses our gloves in service as well as at the reception. Hotel Sacher stands for classic elegance and tradition - but not without renouncing modern approaches.
Daniel Fleischhacker, Head of Experience at Hotel Sacher Salzburg explains, "Besides the proven measures, gloves are easy to implement for our staff and an important signal to our guests: we do everything to provide safe service. Because we were very unsatisfied by the plastic consumption and appearance of disposable gloves, we are happy to have discovered the sustainable concept of ElephantSkin gloves."
