The Benefits of Using a Digital Key Card

Some easy ways to think green and be more sustainable when traveling

Did you know plastic key cards used by hotels generate quite a bit of waste each year? According to hotel key card manufacturer RFID, over 1,300 tons of plastic hotel key cards end up in American landfills annually. Prior to your stay, download the hotel company’s app, which will prompt you to check in and if available, give you the option for digital keys. Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Wyndham, and Marriott and others made this practice common during the pandemic. Some other benefits of digital check-in are skipping the busy line, choosing a room prior to arrival, and receiving electronic notifications when your room is ready.
