Plants In Lieu of Plastic at The Ritz-Carlton Hotels
Hotels around the world are trying a number of different programs to help preserve the environment. Among them, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company has introduced environmentally friendly water bottles at its North American hotels and select properties in the Caribbean. After more than a year of research and working with a variety of designs, the high-end hotel chain has developed a partnership to create a bottle that allows significant sustainability opportunities. The 16-ounce bottles are made from plants, and they can decompose in 30 days in a commercial composting facility, or can be reprocessed and remade into new bottles. Hopefully, this will become a trend in the hospitality industry and beyond.
