Good (UAE) - - WHAT A GOOD IDEA - Anan­

Anan­tara Ho­tels & Re­sorts con­tin­ues to fly the flag for sus­tain­able stays, an­nounc­ing that it has banned sin­gle-use plas­tic straws at all prop­er­ties around the world. This fol­lows the suc­cess­ful roll-out of the pro­gram in Asia at the start of the year. John Roberts, group di­rec­tor of sus­tain­abil­ity and con­ser­va­tion for Anan­tara says, “each sin­gle-use plas­tic straw takes hun­dreds of years to break down and sci­en­tists pre­dict there may soon be more straws than fish in the oceans by 2050. Anan­tara guests are for­ward think­ing and sus­tain­ably minded and want to con­tinue to en­joy the beau­ti­fully lush sur­round­ings for which Anan­tara is fa­mous for gen­er­a­tions to come.” Next in the ho­tel group’s sights are plas­tic wa­ter bot­tles, which they hope to phase out from guest rooms and gyms by the end of the year.
