Boon, a water technology startup utilizing cutting-edge IoT technology, is delighted to announce its strategic partnership with &Beyond Hotel, marking its entry in Bhutan.
Together, they are committed to ensuring everyone has access to clean drinking water while addressing the crucial problems of plastic waste and water inefficiency using Boon’s cutting-edge ZeroMileWater™ technology. This pioneering project demonstrates our dedication to sustainability, eco-friendly hospitality, and the broader cause of environmental conservation within the Bhutanese context.
Boon’s patented Zero Mile Initiative delivers an innovative in-house water purification system that filters and packages water in eco-conscious glass bottles, substantially reducing plastic waste. This project significantly reduces the carbon emissions linked to long-distance transportation by adopting a zero-mile delivery approach.
The partnership between Boon and &Beyond in Bhutan aligns entirely with the country’s unwavering dedication to environmental preservation. Bhutan, often heralded as the world’s first carbon-negative country, is a vital carbon sink in the global fight against climate change. The collaboration between Boon and &Beyond is expected to substantially contribute to Bhutan’s sustainability efforts, potentially reducing over 2,800 kilograms of carbon emissions and over 930 kilograms of plastic waste annually.
Vibha Tripathi, managing director of Boon, remarked, “Our collaboration with &Beyond Bhutan extends the reach of our global impact. Boon’s innovative NetZeroWater™ technology seamlessly complements &Beyond’s steadfast commitment to sustainable tourism and the broader development goals of Bhutan. Together, we are setting new benchmarks in sustainable hospitality and environmental preservation.”
Boon employs advanced AI and IoT technology to provide sustainable glass bottles for monitoring water quality and hydration delivery as part of a circular economy approach. This initiative considerably reduces the amount of plastic waste generated in hotel rooms and premises.
