Hovertravel celebrates National Refill Day with free reusable bottles for staff

Today, as part of National Refill Day, Hovertravel is helping reduce single-use plastic by providing staff with free refillable water bottles.

Across the company, the 85 staff working on both sides of the Solent from pilots to engineers and handling agents to cashiers, have been encouraged to use one of the reusable HoverGreen bottles.

Chris Davis, one of Hovertravel’s HoverGreen Ambassadors, said: “We are always encouraging our staff to stay hydrated with the consequence that across our business we consume over 20,000 bottles of water each year.

“The introduction of reusable water bottles for all staff means we can impact our usage of single-use plastic while keeping our teams refreshed and healthy.”

Hovertravel has supplemented this HoverGreen initiative for their staff with a commitment to involve their customers too.

Davis adds: “As a responsible business, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact wherever we can, and we are improving the choice for our customers by offering free tap- water refills for any customers who bring in their own reusable water bottles.”

In 2018, Hovertravel formed an internal action group of HoverGreen ambassadors to explore how the company’s environmental initiative could be developed. Alongside monthly beach cleans, there are plans to offer regular training on how to manage waste effectively and increase recycling.
