Eco-Friendly Spirits: Puerto Rican DonQ Rum's Green Initiatives

detail_cristal.png
Nothing is more refreshing than a mojito, and you don't have to feel green guilt if you use DonQ Rum in your mix. DonQ has been produced in Ponce, Puerto Rico since 1865. This very old, family-owned American business is on its way to being 100% sustainable.

We approach sustainability as the challenge of finding ecologically responsible solutions within the context of an economically viable enterprise. Our waste reclamation program not only allows us to maximize our production capacity, it provides valuable energy return and cost reductions in the form of Biogas, electricity, service water, and industrial products that we can sell to other businesses. All this while we do what's best for the vibrant ecosphere of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Sea.

I applaud all of DonQ's green efforts, and there is a lot of information available on their website, including this chart.
