GOING GREENER IN 2019

Our New Year’s resolution for 2019 is to go greener where we can. Every big change starts with one small step. In our case, we’re starting 2019 by taking two. Introducing our two new plastic-free product collaborations with our friends of Jerry Bottle and the Bamboo Brush Society, both available for purchase at all Max Brown Hotels!

THE MAX BROWN x JERRY BOTTLE
BRUSHED STEEL WATER BOTTLE

20 billion plastic water bottles end up in landfills or the ocean every year, but tap water is cleaner and more regulated than plastic water on average (especially in our city of Amsterdam—it has some of the cleanest tap water in the world!). To reduce plastic use and promote Amsterdam’s extremely clean tap water, we collaborated on a custom and reusable steel water bottle with our friends at Jerry Bottle. As a company, Jerry Bottle puts 100% of their profits back into clean drinking water projects in India and Tanzania. They also work with schools and offices to create more water fountains and fill-up points to reduce single-use plastic. If you look at the bottom of your Max Brown x Jerry Bottle bottle, you’ll see the coordinates of the water project you helped fund with your purchase. Buy them at all Max Brown hotels!

THE MAX BROWN x BAMBOO BRUSH SOCIETY
BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH

Humans use 5 billion plastic toothbrushes every year, and 2 billion of them end up in landfills or the ocean. As a hotel collection that sees a lot of toothbrushes come and go, we believe this is an area where we can make a change. We designed a custom, biodegradable bamboo toothbrush with the Bamboo Brush Society to reduce the use of plastic toothbrushes. Bamboo Brush Society contributes 1% of sales to nonprofit organizations dedicated to protecting the environment. Buy them at all Max Brown hotels!
