Venice, more than other cities, needs a delicate balance, is a sensitive creature and deserves our awareness and our gentleness. Here bins are still collected door to door, with trolleys and boats and the environmental impact of transport of goods is even more devastating than in other parts of the world.
In 2019 we will adopt a different attitude towards environment, and we have already implemented the first of a series of good practices towards a #plasticfree life.
Casa Flora, Hotel Flora and Novecento Boutique Hotel, have replaced common plastic water bottles with glass jars and steel water bottles.
3000 are the plastic bottles that will be saved every month thanks to a joint initiative that involves employees, business partners and guests, that aims to bring awareness to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly life-style.
No more water bottles made of plastic, instead there will be glass jars in each room. No more plastic bottles walking around Venice, to replace them a steel water bottle designed especially for our guests, which you can buy during your stay and can you can carry it on you and fill it up in the may fountains around the city.
The challenge is to kickstart a revolution to reduce the use of plastic in Venice, involving individuals and businesses. Obviously continuing recycling, but also drastically reducing plastic in the first place. We do this because Earth’s health is precious, it represents the quality of our own lives. Small daily actions like ours can help protecting the environment. Drop by drop.
If not now, then when?
