Effective today, complimentary bottles of Mananalu are now available to guests staying at Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach. These plastic alternatives will be available for visitors to enjoy at the front desk, in the rooms, and at the pool.
By packaging its water in aluminum bottles, Mananalu offers an infinitely recyclable option for those situations where a reusable water bottle may not be possible–like traveling. And they further support the circular economy by removing the equivalent of one plastic water bottle from ocean-going waste for every bottle that is sold, while also making sure every new bottle is made from 69% recycled aluminum.
“We’re excited that Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach are joining our wave of change and taking a stand against single-use plastic water bottles, as they join us in our efforts to protect the beautiful Santa Monica environment that they call home,” says Mananalu CEO David Cuthbert.
Incorporating Mananalu’s recyclable water bottles into the guest experience marks the latest action by Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach to increase sustainability on-site. Additional efforts include renewable energy initiatives, water conservation practices, employee incentives to encourage low-carbon transportation, recycling and waste reduction programs.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Mananalu in our ongoing effort to promote sustainability practices at Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach,” says Charlie Lopez-Quintana, Vice President and Managing Director of Edward Thomas Collection of Hotels. “We are always looking for ways we can improve our carbon footprint and support our precious Santa Monica beach environment.”
