Hotel amenity bottles produce tons of waste each year as single-use plastic bottles are discarded after each guest. IHG is one of the hotel brands looking to reduce its carbon footprint through the use of refillable dispensers. According to IHG, they may reduce their waste by 850 metric tons per year through a partnership they have formed with Unilever to replace these single-use bottles with full-size refillable ones.
Is this a solution that your hotel can implement in order to reduce your carbon footprint? One of the top sustainability goals that hotels should be striving for is the elimination of all single-use plastic items. Another way to rapidly improve the sustainability of your hotel would be to implement a plan for minimizing food waste.
Be sure to advertise these plans as you implement them because a recent study revealed that 87% of adult travelers in the US place a high value on being able to travel in a more sustainable manner. Not only are travelers more likely to choose a hotel that is implementing sustainable measures and making it known, but they may even be willing to pay more for sustainable travel options.
