In a brief article I read, I was exposed to how Las Vegas is "going green" (and not just on the roulette wheels). According to Taryle Spain, director of client services at The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), the use of sustainable products, energy-efficient lighting, water conservation, sustainable food choices, green building, reducing carbon emissions, cleansing and recycling excess soap and shampoo for use in developing countries and donating extra food to food banks are all initiatives they've taken to be more eco-friendly.
Recycling, all-fuel transportation, and community building are other sectors the LVCVA is also taking on to become more eco-friendly. In addition, several of the city's resorts have embraced bold programs, spanning everything from building efficiency to food-waste reduction; Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts, and Sands Corporations to name a few.
This is an exciting time for Las Vegas and a win-win transition to becoming more eco-friendly. Check out this website to find out more on how Las Vegas plans to hit the jackpot in green meetings and events.
Viva Las Vegas and devour the details!
