Eco-friendly water bottle company, Bottle Up, has partnered with London hotel Strand Palace, to offer hotel guests 2 complimentary reusable & plant-based bottles of water in their room, that can be refilled at over 15 automatic water stations conveniently located by the hotel lifts and hotel guest rooms.

Revolutionary brand, Bottle Up (www.bottleup.com), has partnered with London hotel Strand Palace to provide its reusable, sustainable, plant-based, BPA-free, pre-filled reusable water bottles as the in-room water option offered to guests enjoying a stay in the hotel. 

Accompanying the Bottle Up bottles at Strand Palace are 26 newly installed water refill stations from water systems partner, Culligan.  The water refill stations also house a bottle counter to show how many bottles have been sustainably refilled, designed to encourage guests to embrace refilling and reusing their bottles. 

Made in Wolverhampton, Bottle Up turns renewable sugar cane sourced from Brazilian grasslands into durable, sustainable bottles which are then filled with pure British spring water from Elmhurst in Staffordshire for minimum carbon impact. 

Strand Palace is delighted to be partnering with Bottle Up for this sustainable initiative, which comes shortly after the recent announcement of the Green Key certificate awarded for the leading standard for excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operation within the tourism industry. 

Bottle Up Co-Founder, Andrew Eversden said, “The use of Bottle Up bottles and installation of fountains in Strand Palace is a hugely positive step, not only for the hotel but the wider hospitality industry. We’re really pleased that the hotel has implemented a sustainable approach to hydrating guests, and has committed to installing fountains to help encourage sustainable habits for people during their stay.”

Matthew Beard, Managing Director at Strand Palace says, ‘We are always looking for ways to get our staff and guests involved in our sustainability journey. This partnership with Bottle Up and Culligan has presented a fantastic opportunity for us to help keep our guests hydrated, and to do so in a sustainable and fun way. From implementing 17 refillable water stations across 9 floors of the hotel and complimentary eco-friendly Bottle Up water bottles for guests in their hotel rooms in the Autumn of 2023, we have prevented 34,051 single-use plastic bottles from ending up at landfill waste sites. This has been a huge step forward for Strand Palace and we will continue to explore more innovative sustainability initiatives in 2024 that benefit both our planet and overall guest experience.’

Culligan UK Managing Director, Mike Ryall said: “We are thrilled to support the partnership between Strand Palace and Bottle Up as they set a new standard in the hospitality industry. By offering a comprehensive hydration solution, including easy refill options for sustainable bottles, this collaboration creates an experience that empowers guests to make environmentally conscious choices while enjoying their stay, all without compromising on convenience.”
