We empower hospitality businesses to radically reduce their plastic use while improving customer experience and inspiring wider change across the tourism sector.
PlasTICK is a digital tool that helps hospitality businesses measure their plastic footprint, learn about and identify solutions, and monitor progress towards plastic reduction targets.
- Measure your plastic footprint
- Decide on the right reduction strategy
- Get the support you need to take action
- Share your progress with customers and industry
Greece is committed to safeguarding its hospitality sector from the very real threats of plastic pollution. PlasTICK offers a valuable tool to keep track of our progress towards that commitment to reduce plastic across the sector and set the country at the forefront of sustainable tourism.
- Greek Minister of Tourism Vassilis Kikilias
PlasTICK empowers businesses to annually measure the progress made towards the targets of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative that requires tourism organisations to make a set of concrete and actionable commitments on circular economy of plastics by 2025.

It’s exciting to see so many businesses and governments setting strong targets on reducing plastic use. By offering accountability and a way to measure and communicate progress, PlasTICK provides the building blocks for meaningful action towards these targets.

Sustainability has always been a core value of Kanava Hotels & Resorts, playing a major role in our growth and development.
The collaboration with PlasTICK, and the use of its plastic usage reporting tool, enabled us to maintain and enhance our sustainability plan, reinforcing our philosophy of “if you can’t reuse it, refuse it.”
- Area general manager, Paros, Kanava Hotels & Resorts Dimitris Alexakis
Tourism creates incredible value in our world.
As well as generating more than 10% of global GDP, tourism creates jobs, infrastructure and invaluable cultural exchange.
However, it also produces 4.2m tonnes of plastic waste - every single year.
This exposes the world’s most beautiful coastal environments to plastic pollution.
In turn, this threatens tourism’s future (no-one wants to visit beaches covered in plastic) - as well as our environment, climate, health and economic prosperity.
It doesn't have to be this way.
There is a growing movement to reduce tourism’s dependence on single-use plastic.
Citizens are asking for it: sustainable tourism is driving sector growth.
In Europe and beyond, governments are requiring businesses to set plastic reduction targets.
- The Greek and Maldives Tourism Ministries have set targets to reduce single-use plastics across the hospitality sector.
Meanwhile, the UN is negotiating a Global Treaty for Plastic that will create the same step-change in progress as the Paris Agreement did for carbon reporting and offsetting.
Don’t let your business get left behind.
Let's turn the tide on plastic pollution
Common Seas’ mission is to quickly and significantly reduce the amount of plastic produced and stop it polluting our rivers and seas.
We are tackling the plastic pollution crisis by driving new policy, investing in the circular economy, testing and scaling technical solutions and catalysing a cultural shift in how we make, use and dispose of plastic.
PlasTICK was developed in consultation with 125 hospitality businesses in Greece, and is launching with the blessing of the Government of Greece, various hotel associations and Global Tourism Plastics Initiative (GTPI) – an initiative led by UN Environment Programme and UN World Tourism Organisation.
