Las Vegas Hotels Cut Costs and Win Praise For Going Green
Las Vegas hotels find Green Eco-Conscious Changes to be a good Financial Decision
The unique conditions surrounding the creation of Las Vegas make it particularly important that hotels like the MGM and the Bellagio begin incorporating green technologies into their business plan. This includes changing everything from cleaning performance to food served in restaurants to the plants growing in the exteriors of the hotels. Luckily, Las Vegas hotels are becoming eco-conscious and are making these changes.
Transforming the Las Vegas desert into a lush, green hotspot has been a huge tax on the earth's natural resources. Green Key, a company that advises and rates businesses based on whether or not they are environmentally sound, has given top ratings to Las Vegas hotels and restaurants.
It hasn't been an easy road for Las Vegas hotels to go green. Although customers may be nominally in favor of green technology, it can be difficult to ween them off of the amenities they have come to expect. However, by informing their customers of the steps they have taken to reduce their environmental footprints, Las Vegas casinos and resorts have found guests to be understanding.
Of course, there are benefits to green companies in Vegas in addition to saving mother earth. Cutting down on water and energy usage is a great cost saver and anything that helps a company's bottom line is a welcome change. With luxury resorts suffering due to the economic downturn, making an effort to go green is a good financial decision.
