On a recent great holiday to Dubai with the family, whilst sat on a beach, on the palm, in near 50C heat. i was pleased to see that the Hotel Give out free water and ice lollies to their guests during the day. I guess it’s just one of those things that is a ” nice touch ” and for this i say well done jumeriah.
The downside to a major hotel giving out bottles of water , all iced and cold in branded bags and nice for the guests is that there is a lot of Bottles left that have to go to recycling. So Why should i choose to blog about rubbish , well anyone that knows me will know of the company i work for ” Tempcon” and through them i got to hear about the WFAA. The link will tell you what they do , basically my ” knowing of them ” has changed the way i think about waste
so lets cut through this, My Idea was to simply condense the bottles down before sending to recycling, there by optimising the space required, reducing the number of vehicles needed to move the bottles and save fuel etc etc etc.
So My thanks go to the team at the JUMEIRAH ZABEEL SARAY hotel firstly for giving me time with their managers to explain the idea to them and for putting me in contact with this man ( I wont name him as it wouldn’t be fair to him to directly), I’m sure that Jumeriah will do something good with Any money that they save as an international chain of hotels. As its part of their Green Globe accreditation . Also a big thank you for the things that the Hotel arranged for us as a gift. My photo doesn’t do the suggestion any favours really but I hope you can see what was suggested .
It’s Just Nice to see that a truly global brand will listen to a customer, will take feedback , and will also act on it quickly and effectively, I will be feeding this back to the managers that I dealt with directly
Well done Jumeriah
