The Green Team

The Green Team is taking this year by storm and hoping to exceed their current record recycling amounts while maintaining a healthy, eco-friendly work place and second home for our associates and guests. We believe it’s our duty to show an example of how even big companies can help the environment.

In 2011 alone, we recycled over 125,000 pounds of materials and since September of 2007 that number has reached over 485,500 pounds. That’s 800 cubic square feet of landfill space that we saved over the last 4 years.

Quarterly Incentives:
    Herb Garden: We now have an herb & veggie garden outside the back of our hotel. Mint, Basil, Cilantro, and Peppers are just a few of the delicious varieties we have growing.
    Single-Stream Recycling:  We hope to go completely single-stream by the end of the year. So far we compost and recycle all materials except for glass & plastic. Soon it will be everything!
    Laundry System with Ozone:  A more environmentally-friendly way to do our mass loads of laundry while using less energy.
    Electric Vehicle Plug + Parking Garage: A new parking garage along with special electric plugs are in their blueprint stage and will hopefully be up and running at the end of the year or early next year.

Daily Office Tips:
1. Reduce paper consumption: print double sided, reduce meeting handouts, and use scrap paper
2. Turn off computers and monitors at night
3. Turn off lights and desk lamps when not in use
