BE WTR, a premium sustainable water brand, has joined forces with three Mina Seyahi hotels to promote more ecological water consumption
In line with its commitment to removing single-use plastic bottles and in support of the UAE government’s Dubai Can initiative, The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Spa and W Dubai – Mina Seyahi have become the first hotels in the region to partner with BE WTR – a premium sustainable water brand.
With this new partnership, the three hotels plan to remove single-use plastic water bottles across their operations by 2023, throughout all areas of the Mina Seyahi Complex and promote more ecological water consumption through the introduction of reusable glass bottles and an innovative filtration system to purify local tap water for safe consumption.
The BE WTR process involves an on-site bottling solution which will be located at The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and will serve the three properties. The company’s innovative filtration system will purify local tap water with activated charcoal, and ultrafiltration, sieves out chlorine, bacteria (99.99 per cent), microparticles and other pollutants, while keeping important minerals such as calcium and magnesium. The hygienic system produces still and sparkling great-tasting local water.
Reusable glass bottles will first be rolled out across restaurants, followed by the guest rooms and then onto non-guest facing areas including water consumption by employees.
The initiative also aims to support the reduction of carbon footprint by limiting the transportation of internationally branded water to only glass bottles and minimising the usage of refrigeration for cold water.
The partnership with BE WTR will offer guests and employees the opportunity to hydrate and help the environment at the same time.
