What are we doing to help?
REDUSE We are 100% smoke – free and don’t require air filters. We use low flow showerheads and have tap aerators in all guestrooms to conserve water. We only replace guest room shampoos and lotions during stayover service if requested or empty. We use environmentally friendly cleaning products that are purchased in bulk to reduce packaging. We combine orders and thus reduce fuel usage by lessening the transportation needed in multiple deliveries. Our common areas feature energy-efficient light bulbs to conserve energy. We’ve changed all our printers to print double sided thus not using as much paper to save trees We now post our Guest News letter on all elevator landings instead of in each guest room to reduce paper consumption. We have installed motion sensor lighting in all linen closets and electrical rooms to save energy. Our landscaping irrigation is controlled automatically to avoid over-watering. Many of our exterior lights are photo cell meaning they only come on when the sun goes down instead of a specific time. All of our public areas have been switched to low watt halogen lights to reduce energy consumption. REUSE We use re-useable newspaper bags. We have a linen reuse program to conserve energy and water consumption. Unfinished toilet paper rolls are used throughout the staff service areas of the hotel. RECYCLE All napkins and toilet paper are made from recycled material and our napkins and hand soap is biodegradable. We have a compost program for organic materials. We recycle paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and aluminum to reduce the amount of landfill waste. Recycling bins are found in all of our guestrooms, offices, meeting rooms and in public areas of the hotel. We recycle photocopier and printer cartridges and use recycled cartridges. What can you do to help? Recycle paper, glass, aluminum and plastic in your room. Re-use your towels. Turn off your lights and TV when leaving the room. Turn off the heating when leaving the room. How can meeting and event organizers help? Rather than printing the conference material, present it in a power point and email it to participants. Organize carpooling transportation for conference participants. Send an email explaining to the participants what actions are being taken to make the event green. Collectively, we can make a difference.
