The Super 8 Ukiah, CA has just been awarded the Energy Star label for achieving the stringent standards set forth by the federal government.
Online PR News – 30-December-2011 – – Ranking in at least the top 25th percentile of energy efficient hotels in the country, the Super 8’s Energy Star label is truly outside validation for the sustainability efforts it has been implementing over the past several years. With its recent renovation, the hotel has thought of everything to foster an environmentally friendly impact. Given the hotel’s surrounding home – the great redwood forest & Californian wine country – its no wonder why this lodging venue has chosen to help preserve its community. From a 100% organic breakfast to an electric vehicle charging station, the Super 8’s commitment to sustainability goes far beyond reducing energy consumption.
“Due to the increasing climate change and energy crises the need for environment friendly hotels have increased,” the hotel’s management explains, “we maintain our stand, not just because we have to, but because we feel responsible for creating a place where all things are found in their original, base, unaltered form. A Green hotel is not just fashion, but it’s the need of the hour that can help retain and extend the beauty of the place where it is situated. Super 8 Ukiah makes every effort to make it a perfect example of a friendly co-existence where neither nature nor our guests are disturbed due to the other’s presence.”
Super 8 Ukiah conducts efficient waste disposal, energy and water saving strategies, recycling throughout the property, purchasing habits, and many designated eco-initiatives. In addition to this they have linen reuse program for stay over guests and other recycling programs. All rooms are cleaned with eco-friendly chemicals provided by Ecolab and all our lighting, laundry equipment, ice machines, printers are energy star compliant and our pool utilizes a Salinization solution to eliminate harmful chemicals.
Some of the other practices that are rigorously followed include programmable timers and occupational sensors for light systems, use of old news papers for cleaning, double panned Low E windows, employee carpooling, proper disposal of fluorescent light bulbs, and further precautions to assure energy efficiency.
“The accomplishment of becoming an Energy Star Labeled property should not be underestimated” stated Scott Parisi, President of EcoGreenHotel “The average hotel in the country is rated a 50 out of the possible 100 score derived from the Energy Star Benchmarking. The Super 8 achieved a score over the minimum 75 needed to be Energy Star Labeled.”
EcoGreenHotel salutes the Super 8 – Ukiah for its achievement and is proud to be associated with this establishment’s sustainability endeavors!
