Discover How Teams Are Reducing Single-Use Plastic and Managing Water at Adagio, ibis & ibis budget São Bernardo do Campo
Working Together to Prioritize Sustainable Alternatives
Let’s take a closer look at what teams are doing to find alternatives to plastic and reduce the environmental impact of operations.
- Guest rooms: single-dose toilet amenities have been replaced by refillable dispensers and guests are encouraged to use fewer other single-use amenities. Plastic bags have been replaced by paper formats for guest laundry and removed from bins, saving more than 180,000 plastic bags a year.
- Food & Beverage: plastic water bottles are no longer used, saving 38,000 bottles a year. Other plastic items have also been removed from the hotel restaurants and bars including plastic cups and coffee stirrers. Yogurt, butter and jam are now served in large jars and containers, and all takeaway packaging is made from paper.
