Preferred Hotels Group has formed a partnership with Mananalu as part of its sustainability focus.
Mananalu is a company that packages water in cans made from more than 70% recycled aluminium. Through the new alliance, Preferred Hotel Group properties in North America – including members of Beyond Green and Preferred Hotels & Resorts – can offer a sustainable way to deliver drinking water to guests while helping reduce and eliminate single-use plastic from the hotel supply chain.
Mananalu is the water brand of actor and environmentalist, Jason Momoa. His company aims to create a wave of change, while fighting plastic pollution by canning water with infinitely recyclable aluminium.
The hospitality group, which includes the independent hotel brand, Preferred Hotels & Resorts, has put its passion for sustainability into action through a variety of initiatives, including the recent launch of Beyond Green – a curated portfolio of properties that exemplify sustainable tourism leadership. This latest initiative based on shared values furthers the group’s efforts to support positive change in travel by offering its hotel portfolio in North America an alternative to single-use plastic water bottles.
“Sustainability in travel has been gaining momentum for many years, but these past months have further accelerated the need to promote a kinder and more environmentally-friendly way to experience the natural and cultural wonders of our planet,” said Lindsey Ueberroth, CEO Preferred Hotel Group.
“The work that Mananalu is doing to help eradicate single-use plastics from our drinking water is of vital importance, and we are delighted that this partnership creates a new opportunity for our hoteliers to offer guests a sustainable option for drinking water that doesn’t pollute our oceans.”
“We are stoked to work with Preferred Hotel Group as we continue to take a stand against single-use plastic. The movement is growing fast, and this partnership is another step in the right direction to leave a healthier planet for future generations,” said Mananalu Founder, Jason Momoa.
