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
We ask Maggie why she was asked to speak
at the recent
(Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism) forum in Phuket,
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.
