Sustainability during holidays

Herbal gardens take the place of straws

400 kilograms less of food waste and a reduction of straws from 150,000 to 9,000 within one year – at one single hotel. Real-life examples from the hotel business that are part of the Initiative Against Plastic and Food Waste being conducted by DER Touristik Hotels & Resorts show what is possible and what is probably not possible. Scene of the crime: a hotel restaurant. Every day, guests voraciously storm the buffet. So many treats – how are you supposed to choose! At closing time, though, huge piles of food end up being chucked into the rubbish because, as we all know, the eyes are bigger than the belly. A horror scenario from a bygone era? Aren’t we much more discerning and environmentally conscious today? Or is the frequently used term “battle at the buffet”, with its mountains of food, still an accurate way to describe a normal holiday?
