Stop the flood of plastic - Effective measures to avoid single-use plastics and packaging in hotels

  • Published on September 10, 2021
Recommendations to reduce, reuse and recycle in hotels and case studies from destinations.
Every year, more than half a million tonnes of plastic waste end up in the Mediterranean Sea from the surrounding countries, which are popular holiday destinations. The reasons are well known: high use of singleuse products and plastic packaging, inadequate waste management systems, unregulated landfills and insufficient recycling rates. Tourism increases waste by up to one-third during the summer months, often overwhelming the capacities of our favourite destination countries.
Let’s end this catastrophe together: help us stop the flood of plastic!
