Royalton bans straws; adds two new waste-reduction initiatives

Royalton Luxury Resorts has announced its adoption of two new waste-reduction initiatives to strengthen its commitment to environmental sustainability.

Effective Oct. 1, 2018, all Royalton Resorts, Hideaway at Royalton and CHIC by Royalton hotels will have phased out single-use straws and significantly reduced plastic bottle waste with the roll out of a new eco-friendly water filtration system across bar and restaurant facilities in partnership with Vero Water.

Protecting marine life

The new initiative will reduce the negative impact on marine life by eliminating tens of thousands single-use plastics, including straws and plastic stirrers from entering the ocean. Guests staying at Royalton Resorts will be encouraged to support this cause by using eco-friendly alternatives.

In partnership with OneLink Global, an organization that provides efficient, reliable, sustainable, and eco-friendly solutions, Royalton Luxury Resorts has incorporated the innovative Vero Water technology into the total guest experience at resort bars and restaurants.

How Vero Water works

The Vero Water purification system removes impurities, chemicals, and imperfections in water while leaving a clean signature taste every time, regardless of the destination.

At the end of purification, the water is perfectly chilled and delivered still or sparkling to a signature, reusable one litre glass bottle in a matter of seconds, eliminating an estimated 2,149,844 plastic water bottles.

These new implementations are an exciting addition to Royalton Resorts’ sustainability program, which includes: recycling programs, solar energy utilization, dedicated on-site composting area, donations of surplus food peels to local farmers, light bulb updates to energy-saving LED lights, reduction of paper consumption, energy use reduction plans, and towel re-use programs in guest rooms.
