Summary

In the face of rising levels of greenhouse gases, plummeting biodiversity and global warming, can we still stop the inevitable?

Yes we can, even at the individual level, if we commit to changing our consumption patterns and behaviour.

Hotels and restaurants too can play a crucial role by leading by example and educating and informing their customers, guests and suppliers about this common goal which is easily achievable and which will have an obvious impact.

Is this still possible?

A resounding yes.  The solution is within our reach.

The authors

The book Less Saves The Planet – Now let’s learn how to eat well saving the environment is the result of two enthusiasts of the hotel and catering industry who have long been placing the preservation of the environment at the heart of their professional commitments.

With this book, they want to show that a change in consumption and behavior in the sense of greater respect for the planet is possible for hoteliers, restaurant owners and their suppliers and customers.
