ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY BUSINESS WITH"HOLIDAY INN"AND HALM

Melissa (HALM):

Dear Christoph, as a hotel manager you have a high level of responsibility for employees and guests. What made you think about sustainable changes?

Christoph (HI Berlin City Eastside):

I didn't need a decisive event to realize that sustainability is important. If you only deal with it for 10 minutes, you quickly realize that we have to change something!

straight Hotels have an enormous consumption of straws. This is precisely why hotels should act as role models and set a good example as pioneers. That is why our franchisor IHG is always campaigning for new campaigns to make the hotel industry even more environmentally friendly.

Before that, I also worked in a hotel where sustainability played a major role. Back then I worked with companies like TooGoodToGo to reduce food waste.n.

Melissa (HALM):

Were there other drinking straw alternatives that you considered and if so, which ones were they and why did you decide against themn?

Christoph (HI Berlin City Eastside):

In addition to HALM , we tested paper HALM . One advantage was the variety of colors. Of course, it's nice to have a blue or red-ringed straw in your drink.


The product is certainly okay, but the taste did not convince us here. If you leave a paper straw in your drink for a few minutes, you unfortunately always get that paper taste on your tongue. In addition, you still have to throw it away after use. For these reasons, we have refrained from using paper drinking straws.

Melissa (HALM):

What HALM of feedback was there when testing HALM?

Christoph (HI Berlin City Eastside):

HALM looks high quality and is easy to use. The decisive factor for us, however, was primarily the regional aspect. For us there is nothing better than getting a sustainable drinking straw from a Berlin startup!

Melissa (HALM):

There were also points of criticism?

Christoph (HI Berlin City Eastside):

There were concerns about stability. But we put HALM their paces and let some of them fall to the ground. Since there was virtually no break, the concern was resolved. Another point was hygiene. Employees were concerned that HALM would not get properly clean HALM the dishes. But here, too, this fear turned out to be unjustified after a dishwasher wash. And in a pinch there is always the cleaning brush.

So you are satisfied with your decision?

Christoph (HI Berlin City Eastside):

When I got to know HALM at the beginning of this year, I was already impressed by it: A great drinking experience, high-quality production, simple cleaning and it almost never breaks. We made the right decision!

Melissa (HALM):

Thank you for your time and have fun sipping sustainably!
