Macky cardboard cup - Club MAC

As regular readers know, at Club MAC Alcudia we’re ringing the changes in lots of ways for 2019. And, as well as all the new perks in rooms, we’re happy to announce we’re also going green.

 

The environmental impact of Club MAC is important to us all, and we know it’s something that our guests care about too. Of course, a resort the size of Club MAC welcomes thousands of guests every year. And we go through a lot of resources to make sure their holidays are as much fun as possible.

 

Environmentally friendly changes at Club MAC Alcudia

 

Our focus in preparing for our green changes has been mainly on kicking plastic out of our products and off the resort. We’ve changed all adult glasses, which used to be plastic, into a hard-plastic reusable glass. Guests will hire them against a deposit of one euro each. When it needs cleaning, you just swap it for another one at the bar and when you don’t need it anymore, just swap it for a card which will enable you to get a new glass when you need it again. At the end of your stay at Club MAC, you simply return the glass and get the deposit back.

We’ve also tackled children’s drinking glasses, which have traditionally been plastic. As we understand that children are more likely to lose their glass, we aren’t using a deposit scheme. Instead, we’re introducing cardboard glasses with a Macky design. They’re designed to be recycled after use.

 

We have also eliminated as much plastic as possible from everything in our self-service snack area, and in the Lake Burger bar. We’re actively working to reduce the use of plastic straws in the bars and plastic wrapping used in the on-site shop too.

 

Club MAC Alcudia takes its position within a conservation area seriously, and we hope to make a real inroad into the environmental impact of our resort. In total we have eliminated more than 7,400,000 plastic products from the site. Here are some figures to show how much impact this will have.
