Free reusable water bottles for staff and free customer refills

Today, as part of National Refill Day, Hovertravel is helping its staff get involved in its efforts to reduce the use of single-use plastic by giving staff free refillable water bottles. Across Hovertravel, the 85 staff which work on both sides of the Solent from pilots to engineers and handling agents to cashiers, will be encouraged to use one of the reusable bottles.

Chris Davis, one of Hovertravel’s HoverGreen Ambassadors, said, “Thanks to programmes such as the BBC’s Blue Planet, there is much more awareness of single-use plastics and the devastating effects they are having on our environment and oceans. At the same time, 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 whilst keeping our teams refreshed and healthy.”
