LXR Luxury Resorts & Hotels (http://www.LuxuryResorts.com) is proud to announce that it will soon become the world’s first hotel collection to offer Icelandic Glacial, a super-premium and environmentally sound bottled water. Guests will enjoy the crisp and refreshing quality and exceptional purity of Icelandic Glacial, which will be available in stylish 500-mililiter and 1-liter sculpted bottles in the majority of LXR properties by August.
The multi-award-winning beverage is sourced from the Olfus Spring in southwest Iceland, a country known for having one of the cleanest environments on the planet. The spring itself is a vast underground resource that is naturally and continually replenished by mountains to the north, shielded from pollution by an impenetrable barrier of lava rock, resulting in an exceptionally pure and sodium-free natural spring water.
Not only does Icelandic Glacial represent the highest in quality, it embraces an environmentally responsible philosophy. Hydroelectric and geothermal energy sources are used exclusively throughout the production, minimizing any impact on the environment. The company is committed to an ongoing program of CO2 measurement and reduction, with any unavoidable carbon emissions being offset by investments in authentic and commendable projects around the world – giving back to the environment to ensure the product and operations have a net-zero carbon footprint. These environmentally sound practices have made Icelandic Glacial the world’s first bottled water company to achieve CarbonNeutral®certification for both its product and operations, which has earned the company widespread industry recognition and prestigious accolades such as the Global Sustainability Award at the 2007 Bottled Water World Awards. LXR’s partnership with Icelandic Glacial is yet another example of the hotel collection’s ongoing campaign to become an industry leader for ecologically-sensitive operation.
