Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour! Most are thrown away! By offering refillable water bottles at your hotel, you are reducing bottle waste by up to 146,000 lbs per year! Offer a water bottle in the room that your guest can keep re-filling on their trip. You can offer it as a purchase or a leave behind that you sanitize after each visit. This will reduce water bottle waste and will make them appreciate that you are encouraging them to hydrate! It’s also a great VIP gift, a retail item and can be used in conjunction with restaurant promotions. See page 217.
