Four Marriott Resorts Recognized By Florida Government
Written by: Traver
At Vacation Timeshare Rentals we have always tried to recognize and report when timeshare companies do something good for their community or are trying to help conserve the planet in a number of different ways. Today we would like to take a moment to recognize Marriott Vacation Club, whose efforts were geared toward conserving the planet as a whole and not just focused on one community. Recently four of Marriott’s vacation properties in Florida received a certification from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection recognizing these resorts as making a conscious effort to reduce energy use and pollution while still performing their day to day operations and proving quality lodging to its guests. The Florida government started the Florida Green Lodging Program in 2004 which established environmental guidelines to be followed by hotels, motels, and timeshare resorts alike in an effort to conserve natural resources and prevent pollution. To be recognized by this initiative and become a designated member of this program a resort must “implement a variety of green practices. These practices include, but are not limited to, water conservation, energy efficiency, waste reduction and recycling”. It is nice to see in the midst of a recession Marriott Vacation Club was still able to focus on this and earn these certifications. Marriott has shown in the past its commitment to making the world a better place and doing its part to conserve the environment, spokesperson Troy Asche had this to say about receiving the certifications “We are excited to have four more Marriott Vacation Club resorts in Florida receive this important designation. We know that making a consistent effort to care for the environment is a vital part of delivering unforgettable vacations for generations to come.”
The four newest resorts recognized for this honor were Marriott’s Harbour Lake, Marriott’s BeachPlace Towers, Marriott’s Ocean Pointe, and Marriott’s Oceana Palms. We believe owners of these timeshare resorts should be proud to receive this designation as not every resort in Florida has been given this designation. This may seem like a small action from many people but if every resort around the world would show the same type of initiative it could really make an impact and a substantial step in the direction of conserving the world’s resources for future generations. Hopefully other resorts in the state of Florida and around the world will follow Marriott’s lead and strive to conserve our natural resources.
