Stayokay battles against the plastic soup

03 November 2016

Stayokay has been nominated for the Hostelling International Sustainability Fund 2016 with our Message on a Bottle project. We are very happy about this, as we would be able to use the prize money to realise one of our greatest wishes: installing water taps in our hostels. After all, Dutch drinking water is of great quality!

Did you know that…

... in order to create one plastic water bottle, you need one litre of water and one litre of oil?

... animals can barely see the difference between food and plastic waste?

... the average person throws away no less than 80 plastic water bottles a year?

This is quite a burden for the environment! By means of selling reusable bottles and free water taps in our hostels, we are hoping to reduce the plastic soup and eventually also CO2 emissions. Vote for this project and help us out!
