Tryp by Wyndham Dubai urges hotels to adopt 'green' water alternative

DUBAI, December 15, 2019

Recent announcements were made for restaurants and hotels in the region to offer customers a filtered tap water alternative, although since the initiative was originally announced, it has come to light that it will not be compulsory.

Based on its successful results of implementing its own filtration units throughout front and back of house, Tryp by Wyndham Dubai is urging other hotels to follow lead and use this as an opportunity to reduce the use of plastic water bottles and switch to a sustainable water filtration system.

In March this year, the hotel partnered with No More Bottles, the exclusive UAE distributor for Waterlogic, the world’s leading water filtration solution and switched to filtered water and operationalised the regions first in-house glass bottle refiling system, which is expected to reduce the waste of 306,000 plastic water bottles every year. On top of the vast reduction in plastic use, the initiative means the hotel is no longer reliant on external bottled water suppliers and companies to process the waste, which further contributes to their green credentials.

Tryp by Wyndham Dubai, along with No More Bottles are making it their mission to educate guests, residents, hotels and businesses about how they can reduce their plastic bottle waste as well as switch to a healthier and cleaner alternative.

The Waterlogic filtration systems use a three-stage filtration process to remove sand and sediment, contaminants and particles, micro-organisms and chlorine, which significantly improves the taste. Waterlogic uses the patented Firewall ultraviolet purification system, which is guaranteed to remove 99.9999 per cent of bacteria, viruses, and parasites that may be present in the water and also prevents contamination of the water outlet during the use of the dispensers. The filtration systems have been tested and approved by the world’s top standards bodies, including the Water Quality Association.

George Ghaly, operations manager at Tryp by Wyndham Dubai, said: “We’re thrilled that there has been a focus on this topic recently and we are hopeful that it will encourage hotels, restaurants and businesses to offer a filtered water alternative. All hotels need to come together and commit to looking after the environment in a more efficient way. We need to put competition aside and join forces to make hotels in Dubai the greenest in the world.”

On top of going plastic water bottle free, in 2019, Tryp has introduced a number of green initiatives as part of their LUVE (Luve Ur Vibrant Earth) by Tryp project which focuses on reducing waste, reusing materials and giving back wherever possible. - TradeArabia News Service
