Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa puts its green foot forward with environmental cleaning products, green certifications and guest participation programs.
The resort recently began using all-green chemicals for cleaning its 118 rooms. By early next year, the resort will participate in the Global Soap Project, where hotels can donate partially used bath products. These are remade and distributed to in-need populations.
Hyatt Key West is the first "green certified" resort on Key West. To receive this designation, the resort completed 32 sustainability projects, including converting 85 percent of the resort's decking to a reclaimed wood and plastic material, purchasing 5 percent of its energy from renewable sources and implementing a property-wide recycling program.
In August 2010, Hyatt Key West launched a "Meet and Be Green,” a program to encourage meeting planners and attendees to minimize shipping materials, eliminate disposable water bottles and keep inside temperature at a reasonable level.
Guests can also go green by opting to participate in water saving practices. Bed linens are changed every third day of the stay or by request. Guests can also decide to reuse towels.
