It’s estimated that the hospitality industry in the U.S. uses over 3 Billion single-use plastic water bottles a year! That’s a BIG number! This problem can be solved with two changes:
First, source water on-site with on-demand filtered water service and hydration stations.
Second, promote reuse and refill with R4 Bottles and other sustainable delivery options for self-serve, grab ‘n go, mini bar and full service operations.
When R4 Bottles are paired with on-demand water, our customers not only achieve 100% sustainability (front and back of house), but they also create a far better water experience for their customers than single-use plastic ever could.
Made in the USA, R4 Bottles are optimally designed to provide reuse and convenience, affordably. They are made of 100% recyclable aluminum. The average bottle will be reused over 50 times before it’s recycled.
That reuse factor has a few important benefits:
First, the end-users of R4 bottles will add to the eco-efficiencies immediately and will likely change their single-use beliefs and behavior after using them (to a more sustainable mind-set). The hospitality industry will make a huge impact in this change.
R4 Bottles are fully customizable, so with that reuse factor also comes the benefit of extended, truly engaged, brand exposure.
R4 Bottles can be designed in custom shapes and sizes. Flexible artwork, graphics and color options add to the impact and appeal. They are also finish coated for additional durability and that final touch.
When cared for properly R4 bottles will last as long as any other reusable bottle. That means that customers will be enjoying their (branded) R4 Bottle wherever life takes them.
R4 Bottles are delivered to our customers empty. In doing so, the unnecessary and costly steps of bottle filling, extra warehousing and multi-point transportation are removed. Reduction of these steps is very significant, but there is more to save…
Add the reuse effect (one R4 Bottle to 50 or more single-use plastic bottles) and the carbon footprint reduction falls dramatically.
Lastly, when R4 Bottles reach the end of their useful life and are recycled, 100% of that aluminum will be reused for new bottles or other aluminum products.
By implementing water-on-demand and using R4 Bottles, our customers realize a positive and measurable sustainability impact immediately. They also gain flexibility with cost controls and profit generation.
