The Peabody Hotels' Environmental Commitment
Our commitment at The Peabody is to pursue a balance between our guests' comfort and an eco-friendly hotel operation. Our hotels analyze their operation and strive for innovative and strategic improvements at the property level via each hotels green team and green team sub-committees. We solicit feedback from our guests and associates and consider all suggestions for possible implementation. By engaging our guests, colleagues, suppliers, and contractors, our efforts to positively impact the environment will be sustainable.
For our guests, The Peabody Orlando offers water by Eco-Spring, an eco-friendly bottled water company. Each bottle of water saves 33 1/3 square feet of rainforest through their partnership with Cool Earth and each bottle is 100% recyclable.
In partnership with the Clean the World organization, luxurious Peabody soaps and shampoos are sterilized, re-processed and re-shaped. This effort results in an immediate benefit to Third World peoples, where the simple act of hand washing can greatly reduce the spread of such diseases as acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease.
Through the Orange County Adopt-a-Highway program, dedicated members of The Greener Peabody Ambassador team embark on cleaning a one mile segment of a local road. These efforts will result in the removal of an estimated 300 pounds of litter annually.
The Peabody Orlando is proud to launch its new Organics Recycling Program in partnership with Waste Management, Inc. of Florida. Twice a week, Waste Management, Inc of Florida collects organic waste from the six containers on property to transport to their local facility. The waste is then composted over a period of 60 days to be used as a soil amendment to grow produce or in landscaping projects. Read more about this initiative.
