And the WINNER is…
Park City Lodging was humbled and honored to receive Recycle Utah’s 2017 Green Business of the Year award. We have been a champion of social responsibility and sustainability within the Park City community since we were founded in 1984. In 2015, when Recycle Utah invited Park City Lodging to be an inaugural business in their newly developed Green Business program, the invitation was enthusiastically accepted.
Since joining the program, Park City Lodging has furthered its commitment to sustainability with various initiatives, including installing chemical automation systems in hot tubs to conserve water; giving each guest a reusable grocery bag; and using sustainably-sourced toiletries and amenities in all of our properties. Looking toward the future, Park City Lodging is excited to introduce a bulk amenity program that will drastically reduce waste from single-use packaging.
Rhonda Sideris, President and Founder, truly believes in cultivating a conscious attitude toward internal sustainable practices, while also bettering the community and the environment in which we live, work and play. In 2016, she realized a dream long in the making, constructing a green building to house all of Park City Lodging’s operations. Included in the new building are 52 solar panels; a green organic rooftop that supports native plant species, employee housing; and an innovative ozonating system within the laundry operation to save both water and energy. In 2016, Rhonda received Summit Land Conservancy’s prestigious Conservationist of the Year award for her efforts in sustainability.
Also in 2017, The Park City Board of REALTORS® awarded Rhonda as their Affiliate of the Year. This award is given to an active affiliate member of the Park City Board of REALTORS® who has been recognized by the membership for tcommitment to excellent service in his or her respective field.
