Jewel Grande Montego Bay Elimintes A Quarter of a Million Plastic Bottles from Resort Operations
As part of its carbon reduction efforts, the Jewel Grand Montego Bay has incorporated eco-friendly Vero Water as part of the guest experience. In a recent press release, they stated "To make a significant contribution to waste reduction, Jewel Grande was proud to achieve, in 2021, the removal of more than quarter of a million plastic water bottles from Resort operations. This was done through the Vero Water® filtration and bottling system installed in bars and restaurants across the Resort, providing filtered still and sparkling water on-demand. Town water supplied to the resort is filtered on property which removes the transportation costs and the carbon footprint associated with purchasing bottled-water. In 12 months, the resort’s Vero Water® system served (and replaced the need for) the equivalent of 271,000 (500ml) plastic bottles."
