Consumers are now more and more frequently seeking out responsible businesses taking care of our planet. Whilst supermarkets plan for plastic free aisles and coffee brands ditch the cup lids, Akaryn Hotel Group’s newest opening, akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok, launching May 2018, is set to be one of Asia’s first city hotels with no single-use plastic.
