Miramonte Resort & Spa Champions Green Initiatives
Resort is Recognized for Commitment to Environment
“Organizations booking group travel are increasingly becoming more socially conscious. We have discovered they prefer to work with hotels and resorts that have ‘green’ certifications. There is also a niche of leisure travelers specifically looking for green properties,” said Roger Brown, Chair of Miramonte Resort & Spa’s Green Team. “It’s a direction the whole country is going, and since individual hotels may have slightly different green initiatives, certification provides a level of clarity and validation.”
As a Destination Resort, Miramonte Resort & Spa is an active participant in the Destination Earth® program. In recognition of the need to preserve the world in which we operate and serve our guests, Destination Hotels & Resorts is dedicated to practices and programs that pay respect to, and lessen our footprint on, our changing environment.
Miramonte Resort & Spa maintains an active “Green Team” comprised of staff and management who help implement green initiatives across all resort operations. The resort has implemented numerous conservation and preservation initiatives that eliminate unnecessary waste and conserve energy and water. In 2012 the resort recycled 25,621 lbs. of glass, 97 lbs. of plastic, and 70 lbs. of aluminum. With property-wide energy saving light bulbs and water-saving shower heads, toilets and irrigation systems, this portion of the resort’s green program is a critical component for sustaining the environment and precious resources. Other highlights include the use of bio-degradable products, and refillable guest room bath containers.
THE WELL® Spa, in particular, converted its promotional materials from disposable brochures to a re-usable hard-bound book and electronically-available supporting materials. In addition, the Spa has partnered with companies that also make green initiatives a priority, such as the recent alliance with Germaine de Capuccini on spa products. Germaine de Capuccini’s “green chemistry” manufacturing process ensures that the products are produced with natural organic ingredients and product packaging is biodegradable.
