While large industries might like you to believe otherwise, care for our earth is no longer in the hands of individuals. Governments, corporations, and institutions must lift their game to make a positive impact and turn around the mess we’ve made of our planet. As individuals, we can surely educate, speak up and make conscious choices, but it’s time the big players stepped up to the mark too.
One of the most impactful things the hospitality industry can do for the environment and health of our people is to remove single-use plastic bottles for drinking water and personal hygiene (such as liquid soaps and shampoos given as bathroom amenities). In the past, this shift was not so straightforward. However, with Swisspro, an integrated, sustainable water treatment solution provider, abolishing single-use plastic for water is easily achieved.
Swisspro owner, Mr Marco Preisig, says that back in 1989, when doing his language studies in Mexico, he experienced “Montezuma’s Revenge,” the local lingo for traveller’s diarrhea. “Caused by contaminated water, the illness left such a significant impact” that his next appointment was as the general manager of a water treatment company in Mexico City!
Marco has since travelled the world researching and working in the industry. Introducing Swisspro to Singapore 18 years ago, he built a loyal following and now brings water solutions to the Southeast Asian market. His vision for Swisspro is “to not merely sell water filters, but to provide tailor-made and integrated smart drinking water solutions including back-end IoT communication platforms for high-end customers.”
He asserts that “Swisspro starts where others end. We provide in-depth experience and consulting in all relevant hospitality areas, including food and beverage, seminars and guestrooms. Comparative proposals are generated for centralized, floor-based and in-room systems making it easy for businesses to analyze the pros and cons of each. Additionally, Swisspro is committed to providing 24/7 maintenance and service.”
Goodbye to Plastic and Hello to Pleasing Aesthetics
Swisspro is an excellent choice for those in the hospitality industry seeking solutions that are of premium quality, environmentally sustainable and offer an enhanced guest experience.
Premium Quality: Swisspro utilizes Swiss-made filtration technology with over 90 years of manufacturing experience in Switzerland. Every filter is tested and meets the industry’s most stringent standards to produce natural-tasting drinking water with essential minerals retained in every pour. The filters are Halal-Certified as well as NSF-Certified. The filtration technology is so high-grade that it is even used by the military and for disaster relief.
Swisspro places high importance on not only safety but taste as well. The solution has been designed to produce premium drinking water just as if it were freshly captured from a natural spring. In Europe, particularly Germany, sparkling water consumption is some of the highest in the world. Hence, both still and sparkling water solutions are widely adopted in hotels and restaurants for a consumer base with a refined palate for premium H2O. The subtle effervescence and natural flavour coming from a Swisspro tap are far superior to anything that has been bottled, imported, and left in storage for who knows how long.
Environmental Sustainability: Simply installing high-quality water filtration solutions can do away with thousands of single-use plastic bottles. With the implementation of in-room digital dispenser, Fairmont Singapore has done away with over 600’000 plastic bottles in a single year!
Additionally, with solutions that purify, heat, and add bubbles, Swisspro enables hotels, restaurants, and bars to say goodbye to kettles and imported sparkling water. Furthermore, the essential components of Swisspro are made of natural and biodegradable materials that are long-lasting and reusable.
Enhanced Guest Experience: With the installation of Swisspro filtration solutions, hotel guests have access to premium quality drinking water 24/7. There’s no need to call staff for refills, and room aesthetics are upgraded with style and functionality.
A touch of luxury and convenience is also afforded to convention centres, meeting rooms, bars, and restaurants. Guests can self-refill, or staff can provide the service. Food and beverage outlets can give guests access to quality still and sparkling water at hugely reduced prices.
In the words of Jane Goodall, “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.” Isn’t it time to support our hospitality industry in being leaders of positive change? Let’s say goodbye to single-use plastic, hello to better-tasting water and welcome a new wave of sustainable luxury with Swisspro.
