Glasses down and thumbs up to Zsuzsanna Balazs, a Team Member at Hilton Budapest hotel who came up with a simple idea to reduce paper waste at her hotel.
Hilton Budapest hotel used to cover empty glasses with paper coasters to prevent dust. They repeatedly replaced these coasters, burning through stacks of them every day. Zsuzsa thought to remove the coaster from the equation completely, and turn the glasses upside down on a paper tray. The idea was so brilliant and effective (it saved the hotel HUF 15,000 per month!) that Zsuzsa was named the Quarter One winner of Europe Sustainability 2012.
