Help Barbados wave goodbye to waste plastic.
Host or sponsor a Hydrate Barbados hydration station in the community today.

And this is where
we - and you - come in

Newport Water’s Hydrate Barbados campaign has been created to provide the groundwork we need to combat challenges in our society. The program empowers corporates and individuals – in the drive for national well-being and in the fight against single-use plastics.

At present, plastic drinks bottles are one of the most commonly found items of waste in our oceans. Around 1million of them are purchased every single minute world-wide. In Barbados, we want to get our figure down to zero.

What do YOU need to know about Hydrate Barbados?

We’re proud to be Barbadians. As our marine life is smothered and our waters polluted, as we find ourselves actually eating plastic particles every single time we consume fish, our country has taken a stand.

We are tackling the ocean plastic problem head-on. But we will only succeed if we have the infrastructure to support it. Combatting plastic drink bottles plays an enormous part in that.

Is your organization an existing Newport client?

At this point, Hydrate Barbados is client-exclusive program that supports and promotes our clients’ brands and offers them outstanding Corporate Social Responsibility opportunities at schools and high-traffic public locations

NO. HB water stations bring FREE, purified and refreshingly chilled drinking water to all Barbadians and visitors.

To use the HB station you’ll need your own water bottle.

Organizations, institutions and public spaces who choose to become a HB host pay zero for the station. They are responsible only to provide the space and cover the cost of utilities (water and electricity) to power the station.

On-going maintenance is also free of cost to the host, with Newport assuming full responsibility for the management, maintenance and servicing.

Payment for deployed stations is a monthly subscription with a one-off set up fee. Client can reach out to our team at hello@newport-water.com or 420-3590 to discuss locations and rates.

Hydrate Barbados stations are designed to be positioned in high-traffic, visible indoor or outdoor locations (yes, they are designed to be exposed to the elements). These locations must have or can get the needed services – water, 110V electricity and drain.

Locations include: Schools, universities, colleges, boardwalks, parks, beaches, bus stands, recreational and entertainment centres, airports etc.

While testing is on-going on electricity consumption, the unit is structured very similar to a refrigerator with a ## amp compressor and highly efficient chilling technology. It cuts in and out as needed to maintain water at desired temperature.

Water at the highest commercial rate and inclusive of relevant sewerage and garbage taxes cost only 3 cents per gallon. This means very low cost despite regardless of very high consumption rates

We now offer varying station sizes. You can see all dimensions here: https://www.newport-water.com/station-sizes/

The drinking stations will be branded for the Sponsor. Both Newport and the Host will review and approve of branding.

Corporates will typically brand stations in their chosen environment with a message, product or a combination of both which speak to their audience. Branding includes logos and colours.

Research done at schools over a period of time indicate that students were:

1) bringing a limited amount of water from home,
2) drinking water from the bathroom or garden taps
3) utilizing poorly maintained and often times unhygienic drinking fountains
4) purchasing bottled water or sodas at a minimum of $2.00 each (where students had to spend, sodas were by far the more frequent choice)

Many were doing one or more of the above. For example, a student who brings water from home would often run out of water during the day and would end up drinking or refilling at either the garden or bathroom taps.

Hydrate Barbados Station is set to raise the bar on hydration access, hygiene and health at every school by making pure refreshing drinking water the most accessible beverage on every school campus.

Newport every station is fitted with superior submicron carbon filtration technology which provides superior chlorine taste & odor reduction and micro-filters dirt and particles as small as 0.5 micron in size. This filters the existing tap water making it crystal-clear, removing odour and taste impurities while reducing possible health contaminants such as asbestos fibers and a number of microorganisms including cryptosporidium.

10,000 litre plus capacity

NSF/ANSI Standard 53 certified

A large percentage of our stations will also carry UV – The UV-C light mercury vapors are lethal for any type of microorganism (bacteria, virus, fungus, algae etc.): it is for this reason that water treated with a UV-C sterilizer is bacteria free
