Thailand: The new akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok will be Asia’s first single-use plastic free hotel
Asia’s first single-use plastic free hotel, the akyra TAS Sukhumvit Bangkok, is set to open in the spring.
The hotel aims to meet the demand of the increasingly eco-conscious consumer. Effort has been made to source glass bottle containers and there are is no single use plastic used in the bars. Stainless steel water bottles will be available for guests on the go.
Additionally, toiletry products will be presented in locally manufactured celadon containers filled with essential oils-based products. Bio-degradable bin bags will be used in room and shopping bags can be borrowed from wardrobes. It is hoped this will encourage guests to refuse plastic bags when out shopping.
