Practical, cost effective solutions to reduce single-use plastic in tourism without compromising the guest experience or safety standards
We've been helping hotels to reduce single-use plastic since 2011.
Over that time, we've learned a lot about what it takes to implement a successful plastic reduction programme and how best to engage your staff and guests.
The Let's Reduce Single Use Toolkit and guidance documents have been used by hotels around the world to start or accelerate their waste reduction journeys.
Let's Reduce Single-Use Workshops and Webinars have engaged hundreds of hospitality staff from around the world.
Businesses regularly consult with us for personalised waste reduction strategies, branded toolkits and advice on sourcing truly sustainable alternatives to single-use plastic
Together we can #reducesingleuse

Travel Without Plastic
The TUI Plastic Reduction Workshop in Turkey beginning of October 2019 was a great success – the facilitators of Travel Without Plastic provided useful information to our hoteliers how to substitute single-use plastics significantly.
Through this workshop, we encouraged our hoteliers to further reduce plastics successfully in order to achieve TUI Group’s objectives to remove 250 million pieces of single-use plastics by 2020.

Seaside Hotels is delighted to work together with Travel Without Plastic on a specific project for our hotels based in the Canary Islands. As part of our commitment to reducing the unnecessary use of resources we are grateful to have the in-depth knowledge of the Travel Without Plastic team to help us move forward and expand our sustainability programme. The Let's Reduce Single-Use assets to engage staff and to increase awareness have proved invaluable to communicating our strategy and we look forward to continuing to implement their recommendations

At IHG we are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and seeking out more sustainable solutions. A core part of this commitment is helping our colleagues to better understand the options that enable them to make more environmentally-friendly choices. The “Let’s Reduce Single-Use Toolkit” has been a useful way to help our procurement team to expand their knowledge, and in-turn support our hotel brands to make buying choices that have a more positive impact on both our operations and the environment.

What I liked about working with Jo and Rachel from Travel Without Plastic is that they were very flexible and accommodating to me as the client. The Beyond Plastics Online Learning Module turned out exactly the way I wanted.
TWP offers more than consultancy, they offer a partnership, and they are equally invested in the success of the project. As in all projects, there were some bumps in the road, but Jo and Rachel are solution-oriented and adapt to the challenges they are confronted with… true professionals!
