Best Western Opera Liege

Best Western Opera Liege Become the First Zero Single-Use Plastic Hotel

Customer protection guarantee

Best Western Opera Liege is the first hotel to replace all their single-use plastic. Opera Liege have been working with “Racing For The Ocean” to help with this transformation. Opera Liege has moved from a single-use plastic consumer to a zero-waste ambassador. The transformation is set to be complete by the end of February 2020.

Every year the hotel was utilizing more than 24,000 plastic bottles, 55,000 cosmetic packages and 16,000 plastic bags. Best Western Opera Liege have replaced single-use plastics with bamboo products and amenities. All single-use plastic products are being removed from all 50 rooms and suites.

The transformation started off small with changes to the keycards and the materials used for laundry bags, slippers and bin bags. Wooden keycards are the new alternative for access to the rooms. Most products and amenities for guests are now made from bamboo. Biodegradable coffee capsules (made from paper) are compatible with the Nespresso machines that feature in every room.

Best Western Opera Liege have also created sustainable bathroom products that contribute to their transformation. Instead of having three bottles containing shampoo, conditioner and body wash, they have created a soap like bar three-in-one containing all three substances. Guests can also make use of a lozenge like toothpaste with bamboo toothbrush.

Additionally the hotel offers glass bottles that you may refill from the numerous water fountains. Their breakfast and bar services will no longer offer or serve products with any plastic packaging.

France has set a target for 2040 to phase out all single-use plastics.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Richard is very responsive. For more than two years he has been arranging my flights within Europe.

At this stage, I must mention that the work I am tasking him with is very difficult. Often I notify Richard briefly before I need a flight or a re-arrangement. My schedule is a mix of long term and short term arrangements, which sometimes are cancelled or postponed. Richard manages to get me on feasible flights and I always count on him. He is very reliable and I see him as a problem solver.

Even when the pressure is on, Richard remains an accountable and reliable solution provider. He always goes by the books and doesn’t take short-cuts. I like working with Richard, who hasn’t dropped the ball, no matter which problem I tasked him with.

He got me on time to Bilbao last week, although EW was messing around with my extra payment for the luggage, until the gate was closed.

Another time he got me back to Düsseldorf from Stockholm, after a couple of rearrangements due to a short term cancelling of a scheduled appointment.

Richard seems to use the whole runaway of tools and processes in order to get the job done. I am a happy client.
