Advocacy - Environment & Sustainability


National Advocacy

Plastic Free

Hospitality New Zealand encouraged members in 2018 to ban single-use plastic straws in a bid to protect our environment. We were pleased to see a number of our members take up this challenge. To do so, it was important that each individual operator worked out and decided what alternative was right for their business, their margins, and their guests. For example, as a replacement, would they offer guests paper straws, reusable stainless-steel straws, straws made out of natural grasses, or no straw at all?

In the same way, in the case of in-room amenities, operators must consider what alternatives are available to them, and which ones work for their business.
