Emerald Brand and WNW Hospitality Partner To Manage Hotels More Responsibly


Leading Hospitality Group Proactively Eliminates Environmentally Unfriendly Products with the Help of Emerald Brand


Syosset, NY -- Emerald Brand, a leader in environmentally friendly facility, break room and disposable products for hotels and offices, and WNW Hospitality announced today that they are proactively working together to reduce the environmental impact of traveling, by partnering to supply tissue and paper products made from rapidly renewable materials for WNW's Woodbury, NY; Fort Lee, NJ; and Boston, MA hotels. In an effort to proactively make a positive impact on the environment and hopefully set an example for other companies to follow, WNW is working with Emerald Brand to use alternative products in their Best Western Inns.


"We are so proud to partner with Emerald Brand, a pioneer in providing disposable tissue and paper products that are not harmful to the earth," said Marc Soblick, General Manager at Best Western Woodbury Inn. "With the use of products such as Emerald Brands Tree-Free Bath Tissue and Facial Tissue, we are proudly and proactively demonstrating that a thriving hotel can be cost effective and eco-friendly without sacrificing quality".


"By utilizing Emerald Brand products in the first quarter of 2013, WNW Hospitality has saved 10 trees, over 1,185 pounds of virgin fiber, and prevented 1,319 pounds of solid waste from ending up in a landfill," said Ralph Bianculli, Jr., Director at Emerald Brand.


This partnership strengthens WNWs commitment to protecting the environment by purchasing green products and implementing recycling programs. As a pioneer in sustainability, Emerald Brand is uniquely able to provide eco-friendly and USDA Certified BioPreferred products that serve the needs of WNWs properties while maintaining their commitment to protect the beautiful places where we live and visit.
