Palace Casino Resort today proudly announced it has been accepted as a Silver Level into the TripAdvisor® GreenLeaders™ program, which helps travelers around the world plan greener trips by highlighting hotels and B&Bs engaging in environmentally-friendly practices.
TripAdvisor GreenLeaders properties have met a set of environmental standards developed for TripAdvisor by a leading environmental consulting firm, with input from expert partners. The more green practices a hotel has in place, the higher its GreenLeader level, which is shown on the property’s listing on the TripAdvisor site.
“Palace Casino Resort is committed to green practices such as recycling and energy conservation,” said General Manager Keith Crosby. “We currently track power and water usage, use energy-efficient light bulbs, offer a towel and linen re-use option to hotel guests, recycle cardboard, metal, dry cell batteries, and utilize reclaim/recovery procedures of refrigerants when servicing equipment with refrigerant.” Crosby continued.
Travelers can now search for accommodations that have TripAdvisor GreenLeaders status on the TripAdvisor site and view a detailed list of environmentally-friendly practices that they can expect at each location.
“TripAdvisor GreenLeaders are leading the hospitality industry in making efforts to improve their environmental footprint,” said Jenny Rushmore, director of responsible travel at TripAdvisor. “We greatly applaud these hotels and B&Bs, and are pleased to share their eco-friendly practices with our online community of more than 260 million travelers who visit the site each month.”
The TripAdvisor GreenLeaders program was developed in consultation with the United Nations Environment Programme, the U.S. Green Building Council, ENERGY STAR®, and the International Center for Responsible Tourism Canada, among other leading environmental organizations.
