Ritz-Carlton Goes Green With Plant-Based Bottles

Ritz-Carlton Goes Green With Plant-Based Bottles

The hotel chain switches to an environmentally friendly, biodegradable material.

Naresh Kumar

The Ritz-Carlton chain of hotels has announced its plan to do away with traditional plastic water bottles and replace them with plant-based versions in their hotels in the U.S. and the Caribbean. The new bottles, manufactured by Prima Bottles, can be decomposed in a commercial composting facility or reprocessed and remade into new bottles, using less fossil fuel and energy. Currently, the hotel chain uses 5 million, 16-oz., water bottles annually.
