Reduce single-use plastic and meet hygiene expectations without compromising the guest experience and without the price tag of a consultant.


The 3-Phase Blueprint in the Let's Reduce Single-Use Toolkit has been specifically designed to do the hard work for you, saving you significant time and costs so that you can get on with making a positive difference.


  • Quickly and easily monitor how much plastic is consumed by your business and how much it costs with our monthly, quarterly or annual spreadsheet, pre-formatted to save you time.
  • Use our Self-Assessment Questionnaire for your own site to make sure you capture all of the places single-use plastic is used, especially those that aren't so obvious like tea bags or VIP gift sets
  • Feel confident to make changes after reading the Let's Reduce Single-Use Guide - packed full of inspiration and practical ideas for a range of accommodation types, budgets and guest demographics (updated and emailed to you annually at no extra cost)
  • Create plastic reduction ambassadors amongst staff with our detailed workshop templates and powerpoint presentations designed to engage staff whilst saving you significant preparation time
  • Enjoy the opportunity to request additional training material as required
  • Keep our TOP TIPS and Quick Read documents handy, particularly useful for your purchasing department to help them understand whether alternatives really are as green as they seem! 
  • Communicate your sustainability initiatives more confidently with our Sustainable Communications Guide
  • Use our customer communications templates as they are, or as inspiration to create your own suite of printable and social media materials
  • Incease your sustainability profile with our Communications Guide - perfect for marketing and social media teams
  • Read at your leisure a range of case studies and interesting research documents for further insight into the topic
  • Stay up to date with new alternatives hitting the market via our newsletter
  • Record and track your progress to be counted towards our ONE BILLION target

    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.
