BeMed unveils its turnkey method “Towards a zero single-use plastic hotel”

After several months of work, the association Beyond Plastic Med (BeMed) unveils its turnkey methodology “Towards a zero plastic single use hotel”. Developed from a pilot deployed at the InterContinental Marseille-Hotel Dieu (see previously published news on this subject), it brings together all the tools and feedback that hotels need to reduce their plastic footprint.

The hotel sector is a major consumer of single-use plastics and is now subject to a gradual regulatory ban on their use and to a clientele that is increasingly sensitive to environmental issues. This is why it is essential to start thinking about these issues now and to support hotels in their efforts to reduce their use.

With the project “Towards a zero single-use plastic hotel” carried out at the InterContinental Marseille – Hotel Dieu, BeMed has demonstrated that it is possible to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics while involving staff, without reducing the quality of the service provided to customers and without any additional financial burden for the establishment.

By publishing its turnkey methodology, BeMed offers hoteliers a six-step process from defining the starting point to measuring the impact of the tested solutions. It includes proven and easily adaptable tools, advice and feedback, as well as examples of alternatives that allow hotels to benefit from the expertise of BeMed and its partners.

To go further, BeMed offers a collective support to hotels wishing to discover and implement the approach through webinars. The first session is finished.

The production of the methodology was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Southern Region. It benefited from the expertise of various partners including ConsultantSeas, InOff Plastic, the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers (ENSAM) and the Institut Méditerranéen des Sciences de l’Information et de la Communication (IMSIC).
