what's in it for You
Going plastic-free not only benefits the environment but also offers significant advantages for your hotel. It truly is a win-win.
- Going plastic-free will save you costs in the long run. Implementing alternatives to single-use plastics, such as refillable dispensers and biodegradable packaging, reduces the expenses associated with constantly restocking single-use items.
- By embracing plastic-free practices, you can attract a large and growing segment of guests who prioritize eco-friendliness when choosing accommodations. After all, you do want to attract these 81% of travelers who prioritize sustainable hotels AND these 43% that are willing to pay more for a sustainable hotel experience, right? 81% more travelers, half of which will pay more, that translates to higher rates and increased profitability for your hotel. By becoming a destination for environmentally conscious guests, you can also foster a loyal following and build a reputation as an eco-friendly establishment.
- The market is placing a significant pressure on hotels to become more sustainable, and with an increasing focus on plastic waste reduction, many countries and regions are implementing regulations and policies. Proactively adopting plastic-free practices ensures compliance with current and future environmental regulations, allowing you to stay ahead of the curve and demonstrate your commitment to responsible business practices.
- Involving staff in the plastic-free transition process, providing education and training, and recognizing their efforts can foster employee engagement and pride in working for a sustainable hotel. By empowering your staff to contribute to sustainability initiatives, you create a positive work environment and promote a shared sense of purpose.
- As sustainability becomes increasingly important to travelers, hotels that prioritize plastic-free initiatives have a better chance of standing out and differentiating themselves within the industry. You will be respected for your commitment to protecting the environment and will be viewed as thought leaders in the industry. This increases your credibility and inspires others to follow your example. Who knows, it may even lead to opportunities for features in magazines and other media, further enhancing your reputation and visibility.
- By eliminating single-use plastics, you can significantly reduce your contribution to plastic pollution and protect ecosystems, marine life, and natural habitats. Plastic-free initiatives help you minimize your carbon footprint and demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, enhancing your brand image and attracting eco-conscious travelers who prioritize environmentally responsible businesses.
You have the opportunity to tap into a lucrative market, position your hotel as an attractive choice for a new segment of eco-conscious travelers, to enhance your reputation, and to differentiate yourself from your competitors. It's not just about being environmentally responsible; it's also about securing long-term business success in an increasingly conscious world.

"As a small bed and breakfast we noticed that our plastics bin was always getting quite full. To help us minimise our imprint on the environment, Jana did a thorough analysis of our practices and gave us valuable advice. With her sensible and practical recommendations, we could significantly reduce our single-use plastic consumption. As an added bonus, our food waste was also reduced, thus saving us money. Just a few small changes in our mindset and day to day practices resulted in us saving money and reducing our impact on the environment. Thanks Jana!"
