The Nickelodeon Family Suites in Orlando has been recognized by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection with a Green Lodging Certification for environmentally friendly hotel practices. The family-friendly hotel met green practice benchmarks in six sustainable operation areas including: implementation in communication and education; waste reduction; water conservation; energy efficiency; indoor air quality; and transportation.
Green practices at Nickelodeon Family Suites include providing reusable dining items, encouraging the reuse of bath towels and linens, establishing a volunteer green committee, reimbursing employees for public bus passes and installing energy-efficient lighting throughout the property.
“These cost-effective measures not only protect Florida’s natural resources and reduce consumption, but they also do so without compromising comfort for our guests,” said Louis Robbins, managing director for Nickelodeon Family Suites. “As host to tens of thousands of families and children each year, we take great pride in setting a good example for them.”
Since 2004, the Florida Green Lodging Program has set conservational guidelines for the hospitality industry. The state also recommends designated properties like Nick Hotel to companies and trade organizations seeking environmentally conscious lodging and facilities.
