Hotel Waste, Single-Use Plastic and Climate Change - Interview with WWF

[HD video and podcast below] What could the World Wide Fund for Nature, or WWF as it is more commonly known, possibly have in common with the hotel industry?

 In this exclusive interview with Maggie Lee, Market Transformation Manager at WWF Singapore, we ask Maggie about this, and much more.

Filmed at the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel in Singapore on 28 September 2018, Maggie tells us why there is so much confusion about what WWF actually means, and gives us an in-depth look at what the organisation actually does.

 We ask Maggie why she was asked to speak at the recent PHIST (Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism) forum in Phuket, Thailand and how the WWF is working with hotels in the region to help promote sustainable tourism and practices.

We ask whether hotels should be replacing single-use plastic straws with single-use paper straws and whether trees and climate change is something we can now all forget about. Maggie gives us her views on what hotels should do to enhance their green credentials and how the WWF is working with hotel companies to achieve this.

We also discuss green rankings - such as EarthCheck, sustainable seafood, food waste and hotel waste in general, as well as what WWF is doing to better educate consumers about the issues that it feels are important. Maggie also shares her personal views on animal attractions in the region and gives us a little insight into a project to save Tigers. All this and much, much more in the video and podcast below.
