• Best for Reducing Plastic Waste

    Gold: Ibero Star, Spain, Silver: Kilkee and Silver: Soneva Maldives

    We are looking for innovative examples of initiatives taken by tourism businesses, community groups or destination organisations which have significantly reduced the volume of plastic waste going to landfill and/or reduced the amount of plastic pollution across the destination.

  • There is mounting public concern about plastic waste in watercourses and our oceans. The judges are looking for examples of good practice that have had genuine impact on one or more of the following:

    • Resulted in a reduction in the volume of single-use plastics used by organisation(s) within the destination (where single-use plastics have been replaced with alternative products, the judges will be looking for evidence that these have been sourced sustainably).
    • Delivered reductions in plastic use across the tourism supply chain.
    • Demonstrated collaboration between stakeholders to reduce the volume of plastic used by businesses in the destination, work collectively to clean up plastics from the environment, identify options to improve waste recycling and educate/inform residents and visitors about ways in which they can support plastics reduction.
