This is Umair Kabani and I’m the Head of Global Expansion for Peerspace. Over the past few years, we’ve seen hosts add spaces in hundreds of cities. In fact, we just topped 20,000 listings nationwide. As our presence grows, we want to be intentional about making a positive impact in our industry.
As a past Peerspace host myself, I know how much plastic waste a single event can create …and that a large percentage of that waste ends up in our oceans and on our beaches.
So, in honor of World Ocean Day, I want to share three easy ways I’ve found to reduce plastic consumption in my space. I’d love to hear tips from others in the community if this is something you’re passionate about too!
- Ditch the Plastic Straws
- Choose Reusable or Metal Cutlery
What you can do: Go to your nearest Bed Bath and Beyond or Party City and you can find many options there. Or alternatively, Amazon has many great options.
- Glass cups > Plastic
What you can do: Check out your local Target or Walmart for many options here. And of course, Amazon has great options.
Remember, your choice matters!
