Hyatt to reduce plastic waste with new global initiatives

Andaz Dubai The Palm

Hyatt Hotels has announced a series of initiatives to reduce waste at Hyatt hotels globally, including introducing large-format bathroom amenities and reducing single-use water bottles by June 2021.

In a bid to quickly reduce its production of plastic waste (no later than June 2021), Hyatt Hotels Corporation will introduce, as soon as possible, around the world, the following initiatives :

  • Transitioning to large-format bathroom amenities to replace traditional small bottles of shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and lotion.
  • Increasing the number of water stations in key public spaces at hotels for guests who wish to refill reusable water bottles.
  • Serving water in carafes or other containers for meetings and events; bottled water will be available by request.

Other recent global initiatives have included removing plastic straws and drink picks and making alternative options available only by request at Hyatt hotels, and increasing the use of compostable, recyclable, or recycled content packaging for to-go food containers.

These global efforts ensure that guests – both leisure and business – will consistently have the option to avoid single-use water bottles while staying at Hyatt hotels.
