Plastic Free Hotel

What can a hotel do to help reduce plastic? What can you as a customer do to help reduce plastic? Firstly, anyone can sign up to the Plastic Pollution Coalition here. Secondly, stay at hotels that work to reduce or eliminate single use plastic. We have committed to the following:

In-room water:
Our water is filtered and bottled in up-cycled glass bottles, such as Rocha Negra Gin bottles.

Complimentary water refills:
We offer complimentary water refills to guests and non-guests alike as part of the TAP Water initiative.

Plastic-free packaging:
From breakfast to take away lunches and snacks, as much as possible in terms of packing is plastic-free or reusable beeswax paper. All packaging used in shipping products to us is reused where practical.

No plastic straws:
None. Ever.

Plastic bags:
We don’t need them, we don’ want them so we don’t use them. For any guests that end up with a plastic bag, we ask them to give it to us and we can find a way to ensure they are re-used at least once more rather than being discarded after one use.

We still use plastic on occasions. Suppliers send us items that has single use plastic (even though we ask or try to minimise.) But if we all make a small reduction in our plastic usage it will have a huge impact on our planet.
