Ukraine Radisson Hotels go plastic free

07/ 08/ 2018
    4 Ukrainian Hotels #RefuseTheStraw As part of Radisson Hotel Group’s responsible business program, 4 Ukrainian Hotels, namely Radisson Blu Hotel, Kyiv Podil, Radisson Blu Hotel, Kyiv, Radisson Blu Resort, Bukovel and Park Inn by Radisson Kyiv Troyitska have announced that they are moving towards a no plastic straw policy trying to minimize the impact that non-recyclable material has on our environment. These Hotels invite you to join forces and #RefuseTheStraw. This seemingly small object is surprisingly sturdy and takes an impressive 200 years to decompose. The math becomes more terrifying when considering that the USA alone uses more than 500 million straws a day, the equivalent of 125 straw filled school buses. The damage of straws was made particularly evident in the viral video of a turtle getting a 10cm long straw extracted from its nasal cavity. If we don’t decide to collectively change our habits, by 2050 the ocean could contain more plastic than fish. Can the solution really be that simple? At Radisson Blu, we believe so - #RefuseTheStraw. “It’s all about habits and it’s in our power to start changing them. In the Hotel we use straws everywhere – during the breakfast, for meeting and events when serving a coffee break, in Café, in the Lobby bar. When the straws were introduced, it was more about a hygiene and safety aspect, but with time it turned into a habit and flavour peculiarities. Hence, we invite everybody to join us and #RefuseTheStraw. If the guest still prefers to use it, we will offer instead a recyclable one, made from paper’’, said Nadine Fernbacher, General Manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Kyiv Podil. *   *   * For further media information, please contact: Yuliia Druzhynskaya, Digital Marketing Manager, Ukraine yuliia.druzhynskaya@radissonblu.com +38 073 310 8788 *** About Radisson Blu® Radisson Blu® is an upper upscale hotel brand that delivers a positive and personalized service in stylish spaces.
