make a true environmental impact.
As the hospitality industry looks to transform the way it conducts business it must examine important practices around plastic waste, recycling, and reducing carbon emissions.
When we set out on our journey to stop plastic bottles and tubes from hotels going into the ocean and landfills we wanted to ensure that we knew the plastic was being made into something permanent and would support sustainability efforts.
how joining The Hotel WEKA works.
The Hotel WEKA makes recycling easy with minimal disruption to the day-to-day running of your hotel.
After subscribing, our team engage with your team to discuss marketing strategies for your hotel to tell your environmental story with The Hotel WEKA.
The Hotel WEKA arranges collection of the cartons filled with the part used bottles or tubes
The waste plastic is cleaned & ground into a consistent form ready for processing. The plastic is then remoulded into concrete reinforcing chairs made of 100% recycled plastic.
After a brief training session on the simple process, your housekeeping staff collect the part used toiletry bottles and tubes and put them in the original cartons that the new toiletries were supplied in. (reusing wherever possible).
We then transport the plastic
waste to the processing facility.
The reinforcing chairs are then distributed by Castle and are used in concrete structures such as foundations for buildings & concrete paths across New Zealand.
