With immediate effect, plastic straws are banned in all food and beverage outlets operated by the hotel group, and upon request, eco-friendly alternatives will be served. This is the latest in Sino Hotels' efforts in reducing single-use plastic consumption, including water bottles and bathroom amenities. 

'Sustainability is integral to our business. In every way we serve and operate, we aim not only to deliver customer satisfaction, but be responsible to the environment. We hope that by taking action in banning plastic straws, we are getting across the important message about sustainability and joining the global effort in creating a greener future,' says Mr. Kevin Chuc, Associate Director & Deputy Group General Manager of Sino Hotels.
