Goway Sees Support For ‘Plastics’ Initiative

Hotel partners of Goway Travel in South America have joined the travel company’s bid to reduce the impact of single-use plastics across the continent.

Goway recently announced steps the company is taking to have a positive impact in South America, with its initiative to help rid South and Central America of single-use plastic bottles.

“While many people travel with a reusable bottle already, they will still fill up said bottle using complimentary plastic water bottles at hotels, or purchased bottles from local stores which defeats the whole point,” says Don Forster, product manager for Goway South America. “To help combat this, Goway has called on all its hotel partners to install water stations, allowing Goway guests and others to refill their reusable bottles with safe, clean, filtered water. Many of Goway’s hotel partners already have this amenity in place, while others will implement the change within the next year.”

As an update to these first steps, Goway has listed all of its hotel partners who have water filling stations in place. It takes “a village” and on-the-ground-help to make a difference, and the support of Goway’s hotel partners only helps reduce the impact of single use plastics.
