Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach incorporate Mananalu’s aluminum water bottles into on-site sustainability initiatives

Free bottles of Mananalu are now available for guests staying at Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach

Starting today, complimentary bottles of Mananalu are now available to guests staying at Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach, the crown jewels of the Edward Thomas Hotel Collection. These plastic alternatives will be made available to visitors at reception, in their rooms and at the swimming pool.

By packaging its water in aluminum bottles, Mananalu offers an infinitely recyclable option for situations where a reusable water bottle may not be possible, such as travel. And they further support the circular economy by removing the equivalent of a plastic water bottle from ocean waste for every bottle sold, while ensuring every new bottle is made from 69% recycled aluminum. .

“We are thrilled that Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach are joining our wave of change and taking a stand against single-use plastic water bottles, as they work with us in our efforts to protect the beautiful Santa Monica environment they call home,” says Mananalu CEO David Cuthbert.

The integration of Mananalu’s recyclable water bottles into the guest experience marks the latest action by Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach to increase on-site sustainability. Additional efforts include renewable energy initiatives, water conservation practices, employee incentives to encourage low-carbon transportation, recycling and waste reduction programs.

“We are delighted to partner with Mananalu in our ongoing efforts to promote sustainability practices at Hotel Casa del Mar and Shutters on the Beach,” said Charlie Lopez-Quintana, Vice President and General Manager of Edward Thomas Collection of Hotels. “We are always looking for ways to minimize our carbon footprint and support our precious Santa Monica beach environment.”
