The tourism industry is one of the biggest contributors to global carbon emissions, and this to climate change. One of its many polluting ways is food wastage. Each year about a billion tons of food gets wasted or lost. This is also a huge economic loss, being responsible for over a billion US dollars’ worth. Reasons for food wastage differ between developing and developed countries. At the former, it is due to weak infrastructure issues. The latter suffers at the consumption stage. Top hotel chains such as Accor, Hyatt and Hilton have pledged to reduce food wastage up to nearly a third by the year 2030. Such efforts at improving their operational sustainability will also boost the hoteliers’ digital marketing efforts, as such videos go viral within hours on social media. Marriott for instance has banned outright the use of disposable plastic straws.
