SAINT MICHAEL, Barbados, Sept. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Royalton Luxury Resorts announces its adoption of two new waste-reduction initiatives to strengthen its commitment to environmental sustainability. Effective October 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®.

The effects of plastic on marine life are devastating and every year millions of straws end up in our oceans. This 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. 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 1-liter glass bottle in a matter of seconds, eliminating an estimated 2,149,844 plastic water bottles. OneLink Global has also introduced sustainable industrial cleaning practices to various Royalton Resorts, combining ecologically green technology with an award-winning Green Chemical Program.

“We operate in some of the World’s most picturesque locations and are proud of our continued investment to keep them this way,” said Mauricio Zarate, Corporate Director, and Operations.  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.
