Meliá Hotels International has become the latest major travel and hospitality brand to pledge to eliminate single-use plastics. In Meliá’s case, the company says that single-use plastics will be eliminated across the company’s portfolio by the end of this year.
The move includes plastic bottles, cups, bags, straws and coasters immediately replaced with reusable items in more than 370 hotels across 40 countries, which Meliá says will save more than 15 tons of CO2 emissions generated by waste disposal per year. Over 22 million plastic bottles were disposed of at Meliá Hotels International properties globally during 2017.
