Scarlet Pearl is going green

In honor of Earth Day, Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort is launching a new environmentally friendly initiative that they hope will spark a change.

The Scarlet Pearl is going green to help the environment. Hotel, Food, and Beverage Vice President Roy Sous said, “Because this is important. We only have one planet and we have to save it.”

The casino resort is making some changes that they hope will add up, such as switching to a more eco-friendly toiletry line and doing their best to save on water. Hotel Housekeeping Manager Darvis Gill said, “A person uses 80 to 100 gallons of water per day. This property uses about 11,000 to 12,000 gallons per month. That’s about 1.2 to 1.3 million gallons a year so to reduce that, I mean, that is a staggering number, so to reduce that would make a huge impact.”

Guests can help cut back on water by reusing their towels. All they have to do is hang them up to let the staff know they do not want them washed, but if you would like a new towel, all you have to do is throw the old one on the ground and housekeeping will bring you clean ones.

It is not just the environment they are helping; the casino resort is also donating time and resources to local food and animal shelters. Officials say they want to continue to improve on their green practices and they hope to inspire others to do the same. “We hope that we can be the spark that ignites an environmental cause and makes a better future for everyone.”
