Plastic reduction at TUI MAGIC LIFE Cala Pada

As part of the Futouris industry project Plastic-Free vacation on the Balearic Islands, TUI MAGIC LIFE Cala Pada on Ibiza is testing plastic reduction measures such as the elimination of single-use plastic products and plastic water bottles. Five drinking water stations and reusable water bottles have been introduced to reduce plastic waste and offer guests high-quality drinking water.

Reducing plastic by eliminating plastic water bottles

As part of the Futouris industry project Plastic-free vacation on the Balearic Islands, practical measures to reduce plastic waste are being tested in the participating hotels this year. One of these participating hotels is the TUI MAGIC LIFE Cala Pada on Ibiza. In recent years, the hotel has already successfully worked on reducing plastic products, for example, there are no more disposable plastic products in the guest rooms. This year, the elimination of plastic water bottles was on the agenda as part of the Futouris industry project.

Drinking water stations and reusable water bottles

Five water stations have been set up in the hotel in collaboration with our partner aguaKMzero in order to continue to offer guests unlimited supplies of the best drinking water while reducing plastic waste. In addition, reusable drinking water bottles from the non-profit organization Cleanwave are offered to guests.

Guests can now get fresh, filtered drinking water at any time at reception or in the pool area. Information at the water stations not only provides information about the measure, but also points guests to the drinking water fountains available on the Balearic Islands, where reusable drinking bottles can be refilled free of charge.

Win-win: plastic savings and improved guest satisfaction

With the new water stations, TUI MAGIC LIFE Cala Pada saves a total of 120,000 large and almost 10,000 small plastic water bottles per season, which corresponds to around 5,500 kg of plastic. In addition, the service for guests will be improved thanks to the higher water quality at the water stations.

Deputy General Manager Guiseppe Lazarro is very pleased with the installation of the water stations and the improved guest offer: “After a long period of planning and organization, we were able to introduce these filtered mineral water machines and we can confirm with joy, pride and full satisfaction that the system works perfectly and our guests accept and welcome this change. We firmly believe that sustainability and profitability must be in balance, and in this case it is not only a sustainable and profitable measure, but is also reflected in the satisfaction of our guests.”

Plastic-free vacation on the Balearic Islands

With the joint industry project “Plastic-free vacations on the Balearic Islands”, the Futouris members teamed up with the Balearic government to reduce the plastic waste generated by tourism and improve the recycling of unavoidable plastic waste on the Balearic Islands.
