Resort Sustainability Program
Eaglewood Resort & Spa, a Benchmark Hospitality property, has achieved IACC Green Star certification. This AAA Four Diamond award-winning resort is just one of 61 throughout the country to have earned this prestigious distinction.
In 2017 alone, Eaglewood estimates that our recycling efforts have saved 803 trees, 1,134 gallons of gasoline, 330,758 gallons of water, 213,149 kw hours of electricity, and 24,189 gallons of oil!
Other aspects of the process included:
- Waste Minimization, Recycling and Reuse Recycling bins are available in all public areas, guest rooms and employee areas. When possible, Eaglewood and its culinary staff collaborate with local waste specialists to compost food waste and donate unused food items to local charities.
- Energy-efficient bulbs, highly efficient heating and ventilation equipment, and Energy Star appliances are used throughout the property.
- Water conservation programs include guest linen recycling, laundry facilities that recycle most of the consumed water, and low-flow showers, toilets and faucets.
- Eaglewood's purchasing partners are held accountable to ensure that every item ordered is environmentally sensitive. All paper products are post-consumer recycled, dishwashing and laundry detergents are biodegradable, and paint is low VOC.
