John McConnell, founder of International Earth Day stated, “Let every individual and institution now think and act as responsible trustees of Earth, seeking choices in ecology, economics and ethics that will provide a sustainable future, eliminate pollution, poverty and violence, awaken the wonder of life and foster peaceful progress in the human adventure.” Consider:
¨ Nearly 90 % of plastic bottles go un-recycled and end up in the sea.
¨ Plastics are purely synthetic. They are not found in nature.
¨ Avid recyclers can still go greener by giving up plastic bottles entirely.
In its quest to be ever more sustainable, Hamanasi is starting the month of April 2011 on a greener foot. Each Hamanasi guest will be given a refillable stainless steel water bottle to use during his stay and take home as a souvenir. Throughout the resort, in every room and on tours purified water is available to refill water bottles. Please be sure to bring your bottle with you on tours!
We hope you will enjoy using your Hamanasi water bottle while in Belize and at home. All of us at Hamansi– including you! — are working together for a better, eco-friendly environment!
