The Villa Group’s prized resorts in Cabo San Lucas have recently been rewarded for their eco-friendly efforts by TripAdvisor’s Green Leaders Program. The Villa Group’s Eco-Friendly award in Cabo makes the group one of the first to receive this prestigious award.
TripAdvisor’s Green Leaders Program
TripAdvisor’s Green Leaders Program is new and it classifies all hotels and resorts that are making efforts to become more green and eco-friendly. A number of factors are considered in the evaluation, which include environmentally friendly practices and the impact overall of the resort. A score is then finalized and ranking is given to the resort.
Villa del Arco and Villa del Palmar Cabo San Lucas Silver Badge
While all of Villa Group’s resorts in Riviera Nayarit, Los Cabos, Loreto, Cancun, and Puerto Vallarta take an active role in introducing eco-friendly initiatives, Villa del Arco and Villa del Palmar Cabo San Lucas are the first from the timeshare group to be awarded the prestigious recognition by TripAdvisor.
Villa del Arco and the Villa del Palmar Cabo San Lucas both received a silver level badge from the TripAdvisor’s Green Leaders Program. These resorts have met all the requirements to be considered an eco-friendly and Green partner, and more than 40% of their activities were also considered “green” as they were surveyed by the Green Leaders team. These two Villa Group resorts received high rankings because of their energy saving efforts. They have energy efficient appliances in each room at the resort, and energy saving architecture was used to design the buildings, so they stay cool. Likewise, 75% of the light bulbs are energy efficient in the resorts.
Eco-friendly Educational Programs
Both of the resorts provide an eco-friendly educational program for their guests and staff can join in. The program teaches green practices, which includes the towel and linen reuse, which saves on energy and water waste. A recycling program was added too in Villa Group’s Los Cabos resorts, so all guests can do their part to reduce all energy waste while staying at Villa del Arco and Villa del Palmar Cabo.
Many affiliates along with TripAdvisor head the Green Leaders program, which include the US Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program, the United Nations Environment Program, US Green Building Council’s LEED Certification Program, and many more. If your resort or hotel receives the best green resort award, then it is something to really treasure and value. The Villa Group’s Eco-Friendly award in Cabo has made the staff, members and owners very proud.
