Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo, Curio Collection by Hilton Partners with Watergen to Turn Air Into Water for Earth Day
KEY LARGO, Fla. - Carved into Key Largo’s most lavish and secluded area of the island, Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo, Curio Collection by Hilton is expanding its sustainable efforts this Earth Day. In collaboration with Watergen, the resort will provide real solutions to reduce single use plastics and generate clean drinking water.
“We are thrilled to work with Watergen on this and future initiatives as we are mutually dedicated to improving our stewardship to our environment here in the Keys,” said Joy Michelle Boyd, General Manager of Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo.
Since its inception, Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo has committed to cutting its environmental footprint in half, from water stewardship and energy conservation to reducing waste and leading community projects. On Earth Day, Watergen will provide an atmospheric water generator in the Watergen Emergency Response Vehicle at Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo that will provide clean drinking water to guests and the community. Reusable and recyclable containers will also be provided to promote the elimination of plastic bottles.
“Clean drinking water is not only for emergencies but for all year round,” said Yehuda Kaploun, President of Watergen USA. The emergency vehicle that will be at Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo has provided water in many disaster areas around the United States. The event showcases that Watergen machines are not just for disasters, but the solution for clean drinking water all year round.
Single use plastic bottles have become a major contributor to ocean pollution releasing “micro plastic” toxins in the world’s drinking water. By 2025, two-thirds of the world will face drinking water shortages. Watergen’s atmospheric water generating systems make water from air and can help solve this problem and promote a more sustainable environment, in addition to eliminating the need for plastic water bottles.
“Hilton is actively looking for the best and most innovative solutions across all facets of our business,” said Christine Hong, Director of Customer Experience & Innovation at Hilton. “Companies like Watergen are leading the way in social responsibility and provide a new and viable solution for one of our greatest sustainability concerns – single use plastics.”
Hilton is on a mission to redefine sustainable travel and tourism through Travel with Purpose, the company’s corporate responsibility strategy. As part of this initiative, Hilton has committed to cutting its environmental footprint in half and doubling social impact by 2030. Hilton’s commitment to the environment is embedded across the business and supported by LightStay, an award-winning, global corporate responsibility performance measurement platform.
