Anantara and AVANI Do Away With Plastic Straws

Anantara and AVANI Hotels & Resorts will end the use of plastic drinking straws at all hotels and resorts in Asia from January 01, 2018.

They are hailed as the first major hotel brands to announce a companywide decision to eradicate plastic straws at every single property across the Asia region with a view to extend the roll out to properties in Australasia, Europe and the Middle East by the end of 2018.

William Heinecke, CEO, Minor Hotels, which includes both Anantara and AVANI brands, commented, “[…]The enormous benefits for the health of the oceans makes this an obvious choice from both a business and environmental perspective. Across Asia, this will save 2.5 million plastic straws in the first year alone.”
