Sustainability at Mantra Melbourne Epping

Here at Mantra Melbourne Epping we are committed to embedding sustainability into every facet of our daily operations. We recognise that sustainability is an ongoing journey and are continually striving to reduce our carbon footprint wherever possible. Below are some of the initiatives we have implemented to date.

Dry Amenities

We are delighted to share our ongoing commitment to reducing single-use plastics in our guest rooms. As part of this initiative, we have made a significant decision to eliminate single-use dry amenities, taking a bold step towards a plastic-free environment.

We understand the importance of preserving our planet for future generations. By removing single-use plastic amenities such as toothbrushes, combs, and shower caps from our guest rooms, we are significantly reducing our environmental footprint. Instead, guests can request dry amenities by calling room service or visiting our friendly team at reception.

Large Amenities

As part of our ongoing efforts, we have made the proactive decision to move to large format amenities, replacing our single-use plastic common amenities with eco-friendly pump dispensers throughout the hotel. By eliminating single-use plastic bottles, we are significantly reducing the amount of waste generated by our operations. This commitment aligns with our dedication to environmental stewardship and reflects our ongoing efforts to improve sustainability in all aspects of our hotel.

Food Waste

At Mantra Melbourne Epping, we are committed to reducing food wastage and promoting sustainable practices across our food and beverage outlets and conferencing department. We understand the importance of minimising our environmental impact while delivering exceptional culinary experiences to our guests.

  • We recycle the beer wastage in Republic Tavern through the distillery, using the product to form the base of our vodka and gin products.
  • We are committed to using local suppliers throughout our hotel, and partner with local supplier Simon George and Sons.
  • We prioritise using seasonal produce in our menus. 


At Mantra Melbourne Epping, all hotel waste is separated into co-mingle, cardboard, food waste and general waste, minimising our impact on landfill.  In addition, we have taken a number of steps to further reduce water and embrace a circular system.

  • The removal of single use plastic across the business including condiments, straws and stirrers, water bottles and other single use items.
  • Replacement of any plastic based items with sustainable items, including pens. 

Community Support

We are committed to maintaining strong connections with our local community and give back wherever possible.

Mantra Melbourne Epping supports the local community, providing a range of discounts to locals including the Republic Tavern ongoing 5% off all purchases.

Our partnership with local sporting club, Epping Football Netball Club.


At Mantra Melbourne Epping, we pride ourselves on providing an accommodation facility for people of all abilities. Our entrance is located on flat-level surfaces, and our revolving door is easily adjusted to open wide for wheelchair users. We also provide designated parking spaces for people with disabilities.

We offer an Accessible hotel room, which is wheelchair accessible, fit with wide entry and a fully appointed accessible bathroom. These rooms offer the space required for ease of comfort.
