With the increased awareness of climate change and other environmental issues, vacationers are looking for more eco-friendly travel. Beaches Resorts are taking the initiative on sustainable travel.
Sustainability at Beaches Resorts
Beaches is EarthCheck certified and follows the Oceanic Standard sustainability practices. This, along with their internal policies and commitment to delivering a world-class experience, make the resorts a perfect choice for any eco friendly traveler.
Every Beaches Resort highly regulates waste. Their waste control program ensures that not only regular items such as paper and aluminum are recycled, but has been extended to include linens and bed sheets. Styrofoam, long a scourge to the environment and human health, has been completely eliminated from all Beaches resorts. They’ve also gotten rid of plastic straws and stir sticks from their food services. However, paper straws are available on request to those who would prefer to use one.
Through their Water Conservation and Energy Management Programs, Beaches is able to carefully manage these resources. They closely monitor all water on their properties. Timers on all electrical equipment, from the outdoor lighting to the jacuzzi jets prevent waste of electrical energy.
The resorts make great effort to educate their employees on their initiatives and eco friendly policies. They receive extensive training delivered by the Beaches environmental committee, as well as local governmental and international environmental organizations.
Not limiting their outlook to the environment, Beaches also works extensively with the local businesses and government to promote and give back to the community. Right onsite they advertise local “Green Tours” sure to satisfy any eco tourists’ thirst for adventure. All resorts invite local businesses and vendors to set up shop for the day and promote their wares.
Beaches Resorts’ continued commitment to protect beautiful and ecologically sensitive areas, while delivering an unforgettable experience for their guests, makes them a top pick for environmentally conscious tourists.
