Make Holidays Greener is ABTA’s annual campaign in partnership with Travelife for Accommodation to encourage all holiday makers and industry to take positive social and environmental action whilst on holiday. Our theme this year is 'say no to plastic'. Building on the momentum of David Attenborough's Blue Planet II television series and the public's increasing awareness of the damage plastics have on the environment, ABTA will be encouraging the travel industry to inspire its customers to use less plastic.

Hotels

As a hotel there are four things that you can do to participate in Make Holidays Greener.

  1. Share how you are already reducing plastic, or pledge to reduce plastic in the future
  2. Create your own green action such as: organising a clean-up operation with your staff and customers to help keep local beaches, parks or neighbourhoods clean etc.
  3. Join Travelife, the sustainability certification scheme and receive international recognition for managing your environmental and social impacts
  4. Encourage your customers to make a pledge
