Bucuti has banned the sales of imported bottled water in order to reduce pollution and to save valuable energy and resources in creating these bottles and transporting them from sources as far away as Fiji !
 
Further, only two beers available to import to Aruba engage in recycling efforts…Balashi (with a refundable deposit to encourage returns) and Heineken (their bottles are refilled by a local cleaning supply company)   Therefore Bucuti will only support sales of these beers until the local distributors of other brands implement sustainable policies.
 
We believe our policies can make a small difference and perhaps engage and encourage others to do the same.
 
We hope this news is of interest to your readers.
