Novotel Abu Dhabi Al Bustan launches plastic-free Initiative
The property’s food and beverage outlets have started using glass bottles and biodegradable paper straws
Novotel Abu Dhabi Al Bustan has launched 100% paper biodegradable straws in the hotel’s restaurants, bars and cafés.
The initiative was inspired by the sustainable development programme designed by AccorHotels in June 2018 when they started banning plastic straws in some of its hotels across the United Kingdom, followed by other properties worldwide.
Novotel Al Bustan also started using glass bottled water in its meeting rooms and glass water cylinders in their all-day dining outlet.
Earlier this year, the hotel supported the programme with its Eco Chef Wars cooking competition which focused on producing dishes with having less waste from raw ingredients followed by the introduction of Urban Garden which features local herbs and fruits.
The hotel continues to commit to waste and plastic reduction and is planning to launch a beach cleaning campaign before the end of 2019 at some of Abu Dhabi’s public beaches.
