STAY PLASTIC FREE is a campaign aimed at taking single use plastics out of the hotel industry. Using EDITION as an industry standard, we will inspire and influence other hotels brands and hospitality professionals to switch to cost effective non-plastic alternatives.
Swill offer a library of plastic alternative vendors and contacts for everything from plastic mini bars to coffee cups, straws, water bottles, bathroom amenities and food containers, to name a few.
STAY PLASTIC FREE will produce a short film highlighting the impact of single use plastic from the hotel industry on the environment.
In 2018, It is estimated that 8 million tons of plastic will end up in the world’s oceans - That’s one garbage truck full every minute.
Plastic debris will cause the death of more than one million seabirds this year.
EDITION hotels will be 90% single use plastic free by the end of Q1, with the intention of being 100% single use plastic free by the end of 2018.
There are more particles of plastic in the ocean than there are stars in the galaxy, and by 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
