The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach
, a AAA Four-Diamond, five-star property that recently underwent a $100 million renovation, is the first property in the company’s portfolio to be Green Seal Certified
. Green Seal recognizes sustainability leadership performance levels and practices for products and services. The property’s green efforts include recycling paper products, cardboard, printer cartridges, glass, plastic and aluminum cans; installation of recycling bins throughout the hotel in areas such as offices, guest rooms, kitchens and bell desks; the use of 30 percent recycled paper; and donation of outdated furniture and equipment to local non-profit organizations and charities.
The resort has also made efforts to reduce water and energy usage by providing guests with energy efficient lighting and air conditioning, as well as low-flow toilets, showerheads and faucets. Furthermore, the cleaning staff solely uses bio-degradable cleaning products, which are free of petrochemicals and made from renewable resources.
This is the first Ritz-Carlton to receive Bronze Level
status and they will begin working on Silver Level
status this year. Visit www.ritzcarlton.com/resorts/palm_beach
