PortAventura pledges to be plastic-free by 2020
POSTED 11 Oct 2018 . BY Luke Cloherty
We have set ourselves a goal to be the first European park that eliminates all the plastic in our destination resort
– Fernando Aldecoa, general manager of PortAventura World
Spanish theme park PortAventura has pledged to rid all three of its attractions of disposable plastics by 2020.

From January 2019, plastic straws and bubble wrap will be replaced with paper alternatives at the Spanish resort near Barcelona, which is home to PortAventura Park, PortAventura Caribe Aquatic Park and Ferrari Land.

Through 2019, the company will also gradually begin to replace disposable materials used in its self-service restaurants in favour of sustainable alternatives, starting at Ferrari Land’s self-service restaurant Pit Lane.

The move is part of PortAventura’s wider sustainability project, which also pledges to use only clean energy sources at each of the three attractions on site. 100 per cent of its electricity supply is currently from renewable energy sources without CO2 emissions.

"The corporate responsibility of PortAventura World is based on a responsible leadership that always balances economic social and environmental objectives," said Fernando Aldecoa, general manager of PortAventura World.

"We have set ourselves a goal to be the first European park that eliminates all the plastic in our destination resort."

In May, PortAventura expanded its offering at Ferrari Land, introducing a new children's area for visitors to the popular destination. The move is part of a drive to reach 5 million visitors in 2018.
