Joie de Vivre's Silicon Valley Properties Turn Green
Five Silicon Valley Hotels Awarded Green Business Certification
Each Silicon Valley property has bettered itself, ecologically speaking, by making environmentally aware changes internally and externally. "We are committed to being a creative steward to our environment as well as delivering delightful guest experiences at each of our uniquely designed properties," said Karlene Holloman, senior vice president of operations at Joie de Vivre.
At the Domain Hotel eco-friendly changes include replacing disposable flatware and tableware with reusable items, installing low-flow toilets and offering an optional towel and linen reuse policy for guests. The Moorpark Hotel recently put in place energy efficient purchasing and usage policies for ordering supplies and using equipment to minimize the impact on the environment.
Along with the unique efforts of each hotel, the Silicon Valley properties each have recycled products, energy saving programs (including air conditioning unit sensors), pollution prevention, and waste reduction and recycling programs. The efforts made in the hotels are all compliant with the Santa Clara County Green Business Program.
