Centro Sharjah eliminates use of plastic straws

Middle East Business


In line with the hotel’s environment conservation programme, Centro Sharjah has joined the movement to make the world a better place by eliminating the use of single - plastic straws in all its Food and Beverage outlets.

Centro Sharjah will now provide guests PLA (Polylactic Acid) straws as an environment-friendly alternative. PLA straws are made from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane and they are compostable and biodegradable in nature.

“Taking this step not only manifests our support in caring for the environment but it also allows us to spread awareness to our guests and encourage them to support the global drive on environmental sustainability,” said general manager Michael Kasch. The hotel is also in the process of implementing environment-friendly packaging for take away meals.

Additionally, the hotel is sensitising the importance of environmental sustainability among its colleagues. In collaboration with Averda, the colleagues have gone through awareness sessions on recycling and waste management.

“Our hotel colleagues have gone through awareness sessions on improving recycling practices and reduction of food waste that they can implement in their day to day operations and away from work. We are also encouraging a sustainable environment at work stations. For example, colleagues working in the offices are encouraged to bring recyclable water bottles rather than using plastic water bottles,” Kasch said. - TradeArabia News Service
