Recruitment DC Global Talent Caribbean and Americas

Guess what? Our CEO Daniela and the incredible Nira from DC Global Talent recently had a taste of paradise at the Fairmont El San Juan in Puerto Rico. What caught their eye? Stylish, refillable water bottles are in every room, and water stations are sprinkled around the hotel. It’s not just about staying hydrated; it’s about doing it in style while giving plastic waste the boot. Inspired by this, let’s take a peek into how some premium hotels are dialing up the sustainability game.

Hydration Innovation:

Following Fairmont El San Juan’s lead, many hotels are now saying “goodbye” to plastic water bottles. Instead, they’re handing out chic, refillable bottles and setting up water stations. It’s a refreshing move that keeps guests hydrated and plastic waste in check.

Straw Swap:

Plastic straws, be gone! Hotels are ditching the plastic version and opting for paper, bamboo, or reusable alternatives. It’s a simple switch that makes a massive impact, saving millions of straws from polluting our oceans and beaches each year.

Cheers to Reusable Cups:

Raise your glass—preferably a reusable one! Some hotels are serving drinks in cups that guests can use again and again. It’s a small step that adds up to big savings in the world of single-use plastics.

Eco-Friendly Takeout:

When it comes to takeout, premium hotels are going green with biodegradable and compostable packaging. So, your delicious leftovers not only make your taste buds happy but also leave a lighter footprint on the planet.

Waste Sorting Made Easy:

No more guessing games! Hotels are installing clearly labelled bins to make waste sorting a breeze. Guests can easily toss their items into the right bin, ensuring that recyclables get a second chance at life.

Toiletries, Refilled:

Out with the tiny plastic bottles, in with refillable dispensers! Premium hotels are ditching single-use toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, and shower gels, opting for a more sustainable approach. It’s a win for the environment and a win for guests who love good pampering.

There you have it, eco-warriors! Premium hotels are stepping up to the plate, making sustainability as stylish as a five-star suite. From refillable water bottles to saying “no” to plastic straws and embracing reusable cups, these hotels are showing that luxury and eco-friendliness go hand in hand. So, the next time you check into a premium stay, raise a toast to a greener, cleaner world—where every sip and every stay leaves a positive mark. Cheers to sipping on sustainability!
