Reduce Plastic Waste
Plastic waste is one of the biggest contributors to negative environmental implications. Hotels and resorts can be a big contributor to plastic waste because of one-time usage plastics. From keycards to mini shampoo bottles, these considerably convenient items have long-term negative impacts on the environment. When it comes to keycards, these are used daily by guests and often lost, needing multiple replacements. Consider using alternative options like smart locks and access codes. Although they may seem like an expensive replacement, they are ultimately an investment into the future for both your business and the environment. They have strong security and the codes can be changed after each guest’s stay, you can also cut down on costs from purchasing and replacing hundreds of plastic keycards.

Hotels and resorts go through a lot of water daily, especially during busy seasons. It is important to save water in any way that you can. Ensure that you are educating each guest about their options when it comes to reusing linen. As rooms are cleaned daily, leave reminders for guests to keep towels and sheets in specific areas if they wish to reuse them in efforts of saving water. Another big contributor to water waste is appliances that are not water-efficient. Consider switching to appliances that are intended to save water and stop leaks. Low-flow appliances such as showerheads and toilets reduce the amount of unnecessary water usage and leaks while still providing comfortable water pressure for when guests want to use them.
Recycling is one of the most important things to do in order to create a positive environmental impact. This is especially important for big industries such as hotels, resorts, and restaurants. Encourage each guest to do their part in recycling by providing convenient and visible recycling bins. Adding recycling bins to each room and shared areas create a simple alternative to throwing things away after they are used.
Create a Green Team
Too often, taking green measures and approaches starts off well but then quickly gets forgotten about in the bustle of being busy. A great approach to ensure that your hotel or resort is staying on track of positive environmental impacts is by creating your own green team. Source out employees who are invested in staying green and have them help monitor the premises. From ensuring that there are no leaky faucets to ensuring that every light is turned off when not in use, this team can make a huge impact on your hotel and resort. Work together by educating each other on eco-friendly practices and accountability.
