We are so excited to take a step to help our planet by participating in Kendall County’s recycle program. Our valued guests from all over have discussed the idea of recycling for the past year, as we have so many recyclable ♻️ products. We are now able to recycle products such as soda cans, plastic water bottles, magazines, wine bottles, paper, cardboard etc.
Since we started this program, our guests have felt much more at ease using recyclable products because they know we are responsibly recycling them for future product manufacturing. We all know that the world’s natural resources are not infinite, but some are in alarmingly short supply.
By recycling, we can help slow the rate at which we use up these resources. Recycling paper and wood saves trees and forests. Yes, we could plant new trees, but we can’t replace virgin rainforest or ancient woodlands once they’re lost.
Recycling plastic means creating less new plastic, which requires fossil fuel hydrocarbons, harming the ozone. Recycling metals leads to less risky, expensive and damaging mining and extraction of new metal ores. Recycling glass can reduce the need to use new raw materials like sand – it sounds hard to believe, but supplies of some types of sand are starting to get low all over the world.
Also, since 2017, it has become 6 times cheaper to dispose of recycled waste than general refuse, so the more you recycle, and the less you put in the trash, the more money is saved, which should be good for households, businesses and local public services.
In times as they are now, we need to increase employment, which recycling has a giant hand in. Studies have shown that at least 50,000 new jobs could be created by 2025 if we can reach the target of recycling 70% of our waste (we are at 45% now). Roughly 30,000 of the new jobs would be in recycling directly, with roughly 20,000 more in supply chains and the wider economy.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to help our economy at this time by recycling at least 90% of our hotel’s total waste. Thank you so much to our favorite guests for bringing this awesome opportunity to our attention. Let’s work together to create more jobs, save money, and help our planet be as healthy as it can be!
