We’re progressively eradicating single-use plastic items from all our resorts worldwide, to reduce our footprint and keep the ocean clean.
Did you know that out of the 8 million tonnes of plastics dumped in the ocean each year, more than half comes from Asia?
Therefore we’ve removed plastic straws from all our Asia resorts, and replaced them with paper straws. Moreover, paper straws are only provided upon request as part of our “Straw on Request” policy, which has been in place for a few years. At Club Med Phuket alone, we’ve already seen a decrease of approximately 1,000 straws per day!
Our aim is to have removed all straws globally by 2019.
