How our hotel PR agency caffeinated the media presence of Nira Caledonia with one simple story

Nira Caledonia switches its plastic coffee pods for environmentally friendly alternatives - story by hotel PR agency

AN EDINBURGH hotel is making small but significant changes to help reduce its environmental impact, starting with its in-room and restaurant hot beverages.

Nira Caledonia, located on Gloucester Place in Edinburgh’s New Town, is one of a select few establishments in Scotland to stock Eden Project coffee pods – capsules that are 100% compostable.

Alongside the likes of Gleneagles Hotel and Fairmont St Andrews, Nira Caledonia now stocks these world-first sustainable alternatives to the traditional plastic coffee pods.

We shared this story with the media and they drank it up. Some of the highlights included:

  • A total of 82,608 people reached, with a combination of features in trade and local titles
  • Feature in Scottish national newspaper, The National – and online
  • A hit in Edinburgh’s biggest local paper, Edinburgh Evening News
  • Positive mentions across social media
  • Features on specialist hotel and trade news outlets, including Hotel News Scotland and Hotelier and Hospitality

By highlighting these positive stories, we are helping to position Nira as both a high-end, luxury hotel in Edinburgh, but also an environmentally-conscious establishment – a factor which is becoming ever more important among customers.
