Iberostar’s uniforms, designed by Davidelfin, have evolved in line with its commitment to its corporate social responsibility philosophy and will now be made of an innovative fabric developed from recycled plastic.
Cutting plastic consumption is one of the key objectives of the “Wave of Change” movement launched by the company in order to position sustainability at the core of its business activity.
With the introduction of the new uniforms, the company will be contributing to the removal of around 470,000 plastic bottles from the oceans and landfills.
Starting this year, the Majorca-based hotel chain Iberostar Hotels & Resorts will be replacing its traditional polyester uniforms with an alternative material made entirely from recycled plastic. Following exhaustive tests and trials, the new fabrics scored high on durability and comfort, and will be gradually introduced into all 120 hotels that make up the company’s portfolio.
The new uniforms will keep the iconic design created exclusively by Davidelfin for Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, but will be more sustainable thanks to the use of a fabric developed from recycled plastic bottles.
Recycled polyester is a fabric made from plastics collected from both land and sea. Iberostar’s new uniforms, which have been tested and introduced at its Iberostar Paseo de Gracia Hotel in Barcelona and the Iberostar Sábila in Tenerife, will feature garments made of microfiber and twill, both made from recycled polyester.
