Emerald Brand, a leader in environmentally friendly office, break room and disposable products for your home and business, announced a partnership with Hornblower Cruises & Events today.
This partnership strengthens Hornblower's 'Respect Our Planet' environmental management and education program to promote best practices throughout its business. Hornblower is committed to protecting the environment by purchasing green products, implementing recycling programs and sailing the innovative Hornblower Hybrid boat, the only luxury dining and entertainment vessel of its kind in America. Emerald Brand will be helping Hornblower achieve these goals by supplying Hornblower New York with eco-friendly glass and all purpose cleaner made from biodegradable and renewable ingredients, tree-friendly napkins and facial and bathroom tissues manufactured from renewable sugarcane, and biodegradable and compostable cups.
As a pioneer in sustainability, Emerald Brand is uniquely able to provide eco-friendly and USDA Bio Preferred certified products that both serve the needs of passengers on the Hornblower fleet, while maintaining Hornblower's commitment to protect the beautiful places where they operate. Emerald Brand's mission to provide businesses with options that are greener, healthier and sustainable is exactly in line with Hornblowers 'Respect Our Planet' initiatives, said Ralph Bianculli Jr., Director of Emerald Brands. "We couldn't be more thrilled to partner with Hornblower Cruises & Events to nurture and inspire sustainability on the seas right here in New York City."
