Stamford has raised over $10,000 for Earthwatch
Stamford launched their first environmental campaign ‘Grow Green’ in 2005 and took it to the next level in 2010 with the development of ‘Grow a Greener Future’, joining forces with Earthwatch as an ongoing commitment to the continued reduction of energy usage within all of their properties.
“Stamford Hotels and Resorts are 100% committed to ‘Grow a Greener Future’ and we are thrilled to have reached over $10,000 in donations,” said Stamford’s Chief Operating Officer Thomas Ong.
“As a hotel group, we have identified several ways to decrease our carbon footprint without affecting our high levels of service. We look forward to contributing even more as we continue our work with Earthwatch.”
The program is offered to all guests and encourages them to reuse their towels and reduce the linen change if they are staying for two nights or more. Guests who take up this offer receive a $10 credit on their bill and Stamford donates $2 to Earthwatch for each day the option is adopted.
