Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi Eliminates Plastic Water Bottles as Part of Sustainable Initiatives

January 16, 2020

Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi, the top boutique hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, further continues to practice eco-friendly initiatives by implementing a new sustainable water program that removes all plastic bottles throughout the property. Beginning this month (January 2020), guests will find complimentary glass bottles in each room, with water filtered through Vivreau’s signature Vi Tap, replacing all standard plastic water bottles throughout the property. Glass bottles will now also be available to purchase at each of the property’s three dining outlets, including The Anasazi Restaurant, Anasazi Bar and Lounge and The Patio. Through this initiative, Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi will eliminate the ordering of over 40,000 single-use plastic water bottles per year, continuing the property’s dedication to sustainability and reducing its carbon footprint. 

Further demonstrating its promise to bettering the environment, Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi will officially be a Porsche preferred charging partner and will house two Porsche electric charging stations in March 2020. As the only Porsche charging destination in New Mexico, all hotel guests with a Porsche plug-in hybrid model or electric sports car will be able to charge their vehicle complimentary on-site.

“As this April marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we are excited to announce two major green initiatives at Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi,” said Lutz Arnhold, managing director of Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi. “By eliminating all plastic water bottles on property, we hope to promote an environmentally friendly lifestyle to our guests by encouraging sustainable practices that they can take with them after their stay with us.”

In addition to the two new programs, Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi also promotes sustainability through other green initiatives including providing guests with agave straws, wheat straws for stirrers, eco-friendly bags and to-go containers at all dining establishments, along with recycling and the use of local products in guest offerings. The property additionally partners with Clean the World, a social enterprise which recycles bathroom amenities by sterilizing, remanufacturing and distributing them to disadvantaged communities to promote public hygiene and sanitary living conditions. Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi has also reduced its paper use by going paperless at check-in and check-out, and by providing guests with access to PressReader, a digital subscription service which offers a diverse range of newspapers and magazines from around the world.
