Los Angeles, CA, October 26, 2009 – The Radisson Hotel at Los Angeles Airport is proud to announce their partner membership with the “Green” Hotels Association®. This membership highlights the commitment of the Radisson LAX to help protect the environment through sustainable practices at its 580-room property.
“We’ve committed ourselves to managing our business in an environmentally conscious manner, and are excited to be associated with the “Green” Hotels Association®,” says Cindy Boulton, General Manager. “Our team understands the duty we have to protect and maintain the beautiful natural resources we’ve been blessed with, and we take our responsibility very seriously.”
While being Green is serious business, the team will be celebrating in spooky style! The Radisson LAX invites guests and employees alike to celebrate a Green Halloween with them. Upon arrival, guests are treated to green apples and organic candy at check-in. Then, we’ll ask guests to vote for their favorite Jack-O-Lanterns, decorated by hotel employees using only recycled items! The jack-o-lanterns will be on display beginning Thursday, October 29th in the hotel lobby near the main entrance.
The Concorde Lounge is spotlighting Bonterra Chardonnay and True Earth Cabernet organic wines, as well as Mothership Witt and Samuel Smith Lager organic beers. For breakfast, Palmira Restaurant is featuring Heart-Healthy options, including organic eggs made-to-order, all natural organic berries of the day, organic Greek yogurt, and a selection or organic cereals and breads.
The “Green” Hotels Association® has been a driving force in “greening” the lodging industry since its founding in 1993. With a focus on environmental stewardship and conservation, the association assists hotel properties to improve their daily practices through a variety of programs and messages that promote responsible and sustainable operations.
