LAS VEGAS, July 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Two local businesses have teamed up to help thirsty Las Vegas visitors get ready for hot summer days with fresh and cool coconut water, straight from the coconut. The Juice Standard's (http://www.juicestandard.com/) raw juice bar in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas resort features organic tapped coconuts from Coco Taps (http://www.cocotaps.com/) for the first time.
Coco Taps and The Juice Standard Team Up to Keep Visitors Hydrated
Coco Taps' CEO, Coco Vinny, partnered with The Juice Standard's co-founders, Jamie Stephenson and Marcella Williams, to combat dehydration in the desert hot spot. The three Las Vegans are committed to healthy living and preserving the environment through offering sustainably sourced and manufactured products.
"It is essential for Las Vegas visitors to stay hydrated as they go back and forth between air conditioned hotels and the outside heat," Coco Vinny said, "especially if they are drinking cocktails day and night."
"Coco Taps is aligned with the health and environmental values of The Juice Standard and it's great working with these two savvy businesswomen," Coco Vinny added.
Matching Up Fresh Coco Water and Cold-pressed Raw Juice
The Juice Standard is known for preserving the nutrition of fruit and vegetables in its cold-pressed juices. Its menu offers tourists either a straight coco water or an alcohol-injected coco. The fresh coconut water is also on the room service menu of The Cosmopolitan.
"It is important to us that Coco Taps is a planet-friendly company that meets our high standards to serve natural healthy drinks that are delicious, nutritious and organic," Stephenson, co-founder of The Juice Standard, said.
"Las Vegas visitors can find the freshest and healthiest coco water and juices in town at The Cosmo," she added.
Tapped Cocos Are Eco-friendly
Coco Taps Founder Vince Zaldivar, also known as "Coco Vinny," designed a coconut beverage system to turn the coconut into an eco-friendly and reusable container. Drinking directly from the coconut uses less packaging and manufacturing materials than traditional boxing, bottling and canning processes, making it a more environmentally sustainable beverage container. Once the coconut is empty, it can be composted instead of ending up in landfills.
"We've created the ultimate vacation beverage with fresh tapped coconuts by eliminating wasteful packaging, reusing the taps and composting the coconuts," Coco Vinny said
