Water Station in Andaz Costa Rica
Andaz Costa Rica Resort Forges Ahead with Social Responsibility Program by Reducing Waste by 120,000 Plastic Bottles Per Year 

With the intent of further fostering an eco-conscious destination, Andaz Costa Rica announced the resort-wide elimination of plastic water bottles. The program will reduce plastic waste by 120,000 plastic bottles per year, equaling more than two tons of plastic.  Since beginning the sustainable transformation, Andaz Costa Rica Resort has already successfully completed numerous eco-friendly initiatives prioritizing water and energy conservation. 

As an integral part of the social responsibility program, the resort has eliminated all plastic water bottles in each guestroom and banqueting operation and replaced them with reusable glass bottles. The resort has created a dedicated water-purifying room with state-of-the-art Aquatech equipment where water is passed through three different filters creating 100 percent purified water. Each guestroom will be stocked with four sealed glass water bottles and replenished each day. Additional water bottles can be provided upon request.

Also, guests will find Hydration Stations throughout the resort to refill their reusable bottles or the hotel´s glass bottles.

Among the sustainable improvements and enhancements that have been completed over the past two years include the elimination of all plastic straws, updating all AC units with inverter technology which saves energy and power up to 50 percent more than a normal AC, and a resort-wide tree-planting program which invites guests and staff to volunteer together and further enrich the peninsula.
