We all know how important it is to recycle and reduce, and our innovative bottle design is doing both. The 100% recyclable half-liter bottle can be twisted down to half of its original size. That means an end to overflowing recycle bins and the beginning of a fun new way to remember to recycle your empty bottles. So Twist loud and proud because recycling your DASANI bottles helps create new backpacks, t-shirts, rugs, shoes and of course, more DASANI bottles.
‘Frangi’ (as its locally known) is a Bequia institution. Built for his family by a Bequia sea captain almost a century ago, the shingle-sided, two-storey building has gracefully presided ever since over the nautical comings and goings of Admiralty Harbour, in boat building and now in hospitality. We love to chill at the open-sided dining room, sip a ‘Frangi Fever’ at the beach bar, and admire the view from the sundeck upstairs where you can still enjoy one of the original family rooms. frangipanibequia.com
