Reducing the plastic waste generated by tourism and improving the recycling of unavoidable plastic waste on Balearic Islands – these are the goals of the industry project "Plastic-free holidays on the Balearic Islands" the Futouris members are implementing together with the Government of the Balearic Islands.
Where does the food that is offered on the buffet come from, how is it produced, is the food on my plate typical for the country? These are questions inwhich more and more travelers are interested.
Food waste measurements in the participating hotel are carried out in cooperation with United Against Waste e.V. and their waste analysis tool. Based on the findings, a set of recommendations will be developed to promote a more responsible handling of food.
The members of Futouris e.V. want to develop a more sustainable range of dishes and drinks in hotels and on cruise ships and to promote local supply chains.
Sustainable shore excursions not only provide AIDA guests with unforgettable holiday experiences, but also contribute to the economic development, the environmental protection and the protection of cultural heritage.
