The Grand York pledges to eliminate single-use plastic by Dec. 31, 19’

Published on : Saturday, July 6, 2019

The Grand York has pledged to eliminate single-use plastics by December 31. The five-star hotel has set its junior board the task of identifying where and when single-use plastic is used in each department and how this can be cut back completely. The junior board is made up of junior members of staff and has the backing of senior management.

 

 

 

After assessing the business, from the 207 bedrooms, to the spa and kitchens, the team invited suppliers to a sustainability summit at The Grand York to draw up a collaborative approach to eliminating the need for single-use plastics.

 

 

 

Chair of The Grand’s Junior Board, marketing executive Olivia Odudu said that single use plastic was everywhere – from branded marketing materials, to food packaging.

 

 

 

In 2018, it unveiled 100 additional rooms – taking the total to 2017 – as part of a 15 million pounds expansion and refurbishment. The Grand has two restaurants; The Rise for casual dining and Hudsons, a destination restaurant which offers five and nine course tasting menus.

 

 

 

So far, proposed plans for change include delivering fruit and vegetables in cardboard punnets, rather than plastic packaging and refilling bedroom toiletries, while the company which launders towels and bed linen has agreed to remove the single use plastic used to protect it.
