Berjaya Hotels & Resorts Is Officially Going Strawless

KUALA LUMPUR, 9 OCTOBER 2018 – Berjaya Hotels & Resorts (“BHR”) is pleased to announce that all its hotels and resorts worldwide are no longer providing plastic straws. Going strawless is a group-wide initiative and all the food and beverage outlets of BHR have discontinued the usage of plastic straws with immediate effect.

As an environmentally-friendly alternative, biodegradable paper straws will only be provided upon request by our guests. This will help to reduce the environmental impact of plastic straws and support the marine conservation efforts emphasized by BHR. The ultimate goal is to prevent these single-use items from polluting our beaches and oceans.

“This sustainability effort is a meaningful milestone for BHR. It requires the collective efforts of our service associates to educate and inspire our guests to say ‘no’ to plastic straws. One might think that declining a plastic straw would not make much difference to our planet, but imagine the amount we can eliminate if we do it together with our guests. Let’s say ‘no’ to single-use plastic items and help change the future of our oceans,” said Mr Hanley Chew, the Chief Executive Officer of BHR.
