REV On Air: Staying Plastic Free and Conscious Travel with Ben Pundole
Today Cora speaks to Ben Pundole, the VP of of Brand Experience for Edition Hotels and also founder of A Hotel Life. Cora and Ben discuss how travel is changing in the post Covid 19 world to become a more conscious and thoughtful experience. They also discuss Ben’s initiative, Stay Plastic Free, which encourages hotel chains to get rid of single use plastic.
‘I realised that Edition was really quite a severe plastic polluter. In 2017 of the four hotels we had I realised that we were using over a million plastic bottles a year. In the London Edition alone we were using on average half a million straws a year. Those statistics were really shocking to me and I realised I was in a position where I could do something about it.’
