Celebrating World Refill Day

A commitment to a greener future

At IBB Hotel and Cugó Gran Collection, we are excited to celebrate World Refill Day by embracing sustainable practices that reduce our environmental impact. As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, we are in the process of replacing all shampoos, conditioners, and body washes with refillable and biodegradable options. This initiative marks a significant step in our journey to reduce our plastic footprint and promote eco-friendly hospitality.

Our journey to sustainability

We recognize the urgent need to address the growing plastic pollution crisis. Each minute, one million plastic bottles are purchased worldwide, contributing to the staggering 15 million tons of plastic that enter our oceans annually. By switching to refillable and biodegradable guest amenities, we are taking a proactive stance to combat this issue. Our goal is to eliminate single-use plastics entirely from our supply chain by 2030, ensuring that only recyclable or biodegradable plastics are used in our operations.

In celebration of World Refill Day, we are thrilled to announce that we are in the final stages of approving branded refillable water bottles for our guests. Guests staying at IBB Hotel and Cugó Gran Collection hotels will receive a complimentary refillable water bottle, until stocks last. This initiative not only celebrates World Refill Day but also encourages our guests to make sustainable choices during their stay and beyond.

Why refillable water bottles matter

Switching to a reusable water bottle can have a profound impact on the environment. Here are some compelling reasons to make the change:

  • Reduce plastic waste – by using a reusable water bottle, you can prevent an average of 156 plastic bottles from entering our oceans each year.
  • Combat pollution – Every year, around 15 million tons of plastic waste pollute our seas, harming marine life and ecosystems. Reducing plastic consumption helps mitigate this environmental disaster.
  • Promote healthier choices – Refillable bottles are often made from safer, BPA-free materials, promoting better health for you and your family.

Our commitment to a plastic-free future

At IBB Hotel and Cugó Gran Collection, our commitment to sustainability extends beyond World Refill Day. We are dedicated to integrating eco-friendly practices into every aspect of our operations. From sourcing biodegradable guest amenities to implementing robust recycling programs, our efforts are driven by a vision of a plastic-free future.
