The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa Avon on Wednesday issued the following press release on its sustainability efforts:
The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa Avon, Vail Valley is continuing to amplify its commitment to sustainability with a new pledge to take the entire resort free of single-use plastic products by 2024 and the return of the “Nature at Night” educational series led by Eagle County’s Walking Mountains Science Center.
As the first LEED Silver Certified hotel in both Colorado and the Westin brand, The Westin Riverfront has long been a leader in environmentally friendly lodging. To accomplish the pledge to remove all single-use plastic products, the resort has replaced all in-room plastic water bottles with reusable aluminum bottles – which removes more than 88,000 plastic bottles from the waste stream – and installed water filtration stations on every floor. The Food & Beverage department has transitioned to using only eco-friendly to-go containers and has replaced all plastic utensils with silverware. Next year, the hotel will roll out refillable bathroom amenities, including shampoo, conditioner, soap and body lotion.
The Westin Riverfront – which has offered on-site recycling since it opened in 2008 – is also embracing the new Town of Avon ordinance that goes into effect on Nov. 1st requiring universal recycling for all residents, commercial entities and visitors.
The Westin Riverfront was awarded Actively Green Certification from Eagle County’s Walking Mountains Science Center last year and is partnering with them again to host FREE weekly “Nature at Night” educational events this winter. Open to resort guests and the Vail Valley public, the series will run on Mondays at 4 p.m. from January 8th – April 8th.
Other unique green programs at The Westin Riverfront include:
Located in the heart of the Vail Valley, The Westin Riverfront offers 230 guest residences, each featuring a custom kitchen, five-piece bathroom, gas fireplace and Westin Heavenly Bed.
