Abstract

Even the most recyclable plastic can only be recycled at a rate of 20-30%, the rest of goes to rivers, oceans, and landfills, where the carbon-rich materials take centuries to decompose. World organizations and stakeholders in tourism are putting an effort to the initiatives which could raise public awareness on White polition (plastic pollution). This paper summarizes the business practice in tourism concerning future sustainable development specificly in eco tourism and hotel sector. As part of a circular economy, policy "reuse, reduce, and recycle" has been adopted for most hotels and resorts in the world. Complexity of pollution prevention had motivated and motivated and led the researchers to find methods that would redefine the life cycle of plastic waste from linear to circular.
