Last week Starwood Hotels, parent company of Sheraton Hotels and The Westin, made a huge donation to Groundwork Denver in the form of a check for $12,864! Starwood hosted their annual leadership conference for their hotels in North, Central and South America at the Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel
As we all know, nowadays when you stay at a hotel you can choose to refuse having the hotel’s housekeeping services entirely change your sheets and towels in order to help save water used during the laundry process. Usually this choice results in guests receiving a voucher for use somewhere else within the hotel, usually at the lobby bar or in the amenities shop. But for this conference, guests who chose to “Make a Green Choice” as Starwood calls it, were choosing to make a donation to Groundwork Denver with the money saved rather than receiving a voucher.
With over 3000 people attending the conference, all those green choices added up to a lot of another type of green for Groundwork! And for that we say THANK YOU to Starwood Hotels, the conference attendants, and our partners at the Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel and The Westin Downtown Denver Hotel for their support!
We even managed to get a few conference goers to jump on the Groundwork Denver Bike Blender Machine to whip up some fresh smoothies!
We look forward to continued partnership with the Sheraton and The Westin and all the possibilities the future holds!
