Rethinking Single Use Plastic Products in Travel & Tourism

COVID-19 led to a proliferation of single-use plastic products (SUPPs), adding urgency to the global challenge of single-use plastic pollution, which has significant environmental impacts and negatively affects the attractiveness of destinations. Yet, the pandemic provided a unique opportunity to reflect on the changes required to build back a greener and more sustainable future.

While the Travel & Tourism sector is increasingly implementing SUPP elimination strategies with the aim of moving towards more circular approaches, individual efforts are not enough. How can the sector collaborate across the value chain to ensure a transition towards reduce and reuse models in line with circularity principles as well as current and future waste infrastructures?
