The Adriatic for the Adriatic
A holiday free of plastic waste Among other things, hotel guests can choose environmentally friendly experiences on their holiday. Did you know that eight million tonnes of plastic waste end up in the sea every year? Did you know that one plastic bottle takes 500 years to decompose in the environment and that more than a million animal species per year get harmed by mistakenly feeding on the plastic waste discarded in the sea? We’re all responsible for global pollution endangering the planet and each of us can contribute to stopping it.
Hotel Adriatic from Maistra’s Collection brand decided to step up its game and completely eliminate single-use plastics and replace it with available alternatives. Their Adriatic for the Adriatic initiative, launched on Earth Day, includes the hotel staff, vendors, partners, as well as the hotel guests and the local residents for whom the hotel is the favourite place for meeting friends.
Step by step
The hotel began by using paper straws instead of plastic ones. Their plan is to eliminate all plastic packaging of perishables, such as drinks bottles, bags, containers, cups, toiletries, etc. from use by the end of this year. Except for plastics, the hotel plans to give up on using chemical cleaning agents and replace them with bioproducts. They will also support collaboration with vendors whose products are made from natural, biologically and environmentally friendly or recycled materials. This includes cosmetics, printed materials and uniforms. Among other things, hotel guests can choose environmentally friendly experiences on their holiday. One of them is dolphin watching guided by dolphin whisperers, or exploring the environmentally friendly market in Rovinj, discovering renowned organic olive oil makers from Istria, sustainable shopping options, etc. There will also be panels on environmental protection throughout the year, with the purpose of educating and inspiring the wider community.
Things each of us can do to help reduce sea pollution:
– Enjoy the sea and the coast in a responsible manner – Reduce your use of plastic packaging – Use mild cleaning agents – Join local beach cleaning initiatives
The Adriatic for the Adriatic initiative by Maistra’s Hotel Adriatic has become a model way of actively working towards cleaner workplaces and plastic-free holidays. Join us!
