Rovinj’s Adriatic Hotel is turning to ecology and withdrawing plastic from use

first_imgHotel employees, suppliers, partners and guests and citizens who enjoy hotel services are actively involved in the implementation of this initiative. In 2018, Adriatic started using replacement paper straws instead of plastic ones. By June this year, the hotel will stop using 80 percent of plastic products (bathroom amenities, beverage bottles, bags, containers, cups, etc.) for single use in order to completely eliminate them from use in all its accommodation by the end of 2019. units, bars and restaurant. Furthermore, by the end of the year, Adriatic will use only biological cleaners and support cooperation with suppliers whose products (cosmetics, printed materials and even staff uniforms) are made from natural, biological, environmentally friendly or recycled materials. Maistra is aware of the growing threat that plastic pollution poses to marine biodiversity, so they have decided to take concrete steps in their business to reduce pollution. Hotel Adriatic will replace all disposable plastic items with available alternatives.

They will be able, for example, to watch dolphins with local dolphin whisperers or get information about the Rovinj organic market, award-winning Istrian producers of organic olive oil, sustainable shopping opportunities and the like.center_img “Many large corporations have decided to eliminate plastic from their daily activities, among them hoteliers.

Japan’s Honda gets hero’s welcome in Brazil

first_imgJapanese midfielder Keisuke Honda was given a hero’s welcome Friday from several thousand fans of Brazilian club Botafogo, where he recently signed to play until the end of the year. “Ole, Ole, Ole, Ola, Honda, Honda,” chanted a huge crowd of frenzied fans, brandishing Japanese flags as the 33-year-old arrived at the Galeao international airport in Rio de Janeiro. Keisuke Honda holds the Botafogo flag as he meets fans on arrival at Galeao Airport in Rio de Janeiro Hidden by the pack of photographers shooting his arrival, Honda pleased the crowd by hopping onto a platform to greet them, then donned a Botafogo cap and waved a flag in the club’s black and white colours. Honda, one of the best players in Japanese football history, will be officially presented Saturday at Nilton Santos stadium, the athletics venue for the 2016 Olympics. Botafogo are looking for a boost after finishing 15th in the Brazilian league last season, barely avoiding relegation. Honda had been without a club since leaving Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem in December, less than two months after joining. Formerly of AC Milan and CSKA Moscow, the midfielder has stood out for the Japan national team, scoring 37 goals in 98 appearances, including four World Cup goals.

He is not the first foreign star to sign for Botafogo at the end of his career. Dutch great Clarence Seedorf – the only man to win the Champions League with three different clubs – joined in 2012 and enjoyed a successful 18-month stint in Rio de Janeiro, scoring 24 goals in 81 matches. Botafogo’s most famous son, though, was the wing wizard and two-time World Cup winner Garrincha, who lit up Brazilian football in the 1950s and 60s.

We must beat the Reds – Vertonghen

first_img Spurs will hope to close the gap further with a positive result at Newcastle on Wednesday, but defender Vertonghen already has half an eye on what could prove a decisive clash with the Reds at Anfield on March 30. “We probably need a win, so we will go for that,” the Belgium international said. “It was a bad day for us when we lost 5-0 at home to Liverpool in December but that game didn’t reflect our strengths compared with theirs. “We beat them at home last year and we went 2-1 up at Anfield last March, where we were the better side (Spurs eventually lost 3-2). That was one of our better performances last season. “But we can do much better than we did against Everton. We play at Newcastle on Wednesday but then we have the time to train before we play Norwich and that’s the most important thing. “We need to work on our shape and our movement and then the sharpness will be there. Tim now has a chance to work on our shape. Until now, he has done a very good job. The club and the players believe in him.” Those sentiments were echoed last week by frontman Adebayor, who praised Sherwood for reinstating him following Andre Villas-Boas’ departure. The 29-year-old was marginalised by the Portuguese during the first half of the campaign, but has impressed under the new head coach, scoring six goals in nine Premier League matches. “Adebayor is back and has been unbelievable,” Vertonghen said. “Just one player coming in can sometimes affect the team. “When we played Liverpool and lost 5-0 (in Villas-Boas’s last match at the helm), we had a lot of injuries and sometimes a manager can be unlucky. “Of course, he had the Adebayor thing and some difficult business to take care of. “We lost against the big teams and that is why we couldn’t compete for the top-three places.” The top-four race looks to be a three-way battle between Tottenham and the two Merseyside clubs. Everton will look to get back on track when Crystal Palace visit Goodison Park on Wednesday, with Martinez planning to use the disappointment of defeat in north London as catalyst for victory. “It is important we focus now on Crystal Palace and we will try to get rid of the frustration in that performance,” the Spaniard said. “There are many games left and there will be many twists and turns. What we can’t do is get too disappointed by the scoreline. “Obviously we want to win games but our performance merited a good scoreline. When you do that it is a matter of keeping playing good football and the points will come.” The fourth-placed Reds’ 5-1 mauling of Arsenal on Saturday put extra pressure on Spurs and fellow Champions League hopefuls Everton when they met little over 24 hours later at White Hart Lane. Emmanuel Adebayor’s strike proved the difference as Sherwood’s side picked up a somewhat fortuitous 1-0 victory, which saw them usurp Roberto Martinez’s side in fifth and move within three points of Liverpool. Press Association Jan Vertonghen is enjoying life under Tim Sherwood but fears Tottenham will miss out on a Champions League berth should they fail to win at Liverpool next month.last_img read more
