For Immediate Release:

Vail, Colorado—April 20, 2010— The Vail Cascade Resort recognizes Earth Day on Thursday, April 22 with a renewed focus on protecting the environment, fostering education regarding environmentally friendly actions and recognizing leaders within the resort who support sustainable living practices.  In celebration of Earth Day, associates have the opportunity to participate in “green initiatives” such as tree, flower and herb garden planting, highway and creek clean-ups, and the encouragement to carpool, walk or ride a bike to work.

Additionally, Vail Cascade Resort General Manager Brett Schoenfield issued the following proclamation:

“Over the past two years, the Vail Cascade Resort has adopted the Destination Earth program with the knowledge that the resort’s customers and associates all benefit from a healthy, sustainable environment.  The property has a designated ‘green team’ onsite and has made a commitment to pursuing the following ideals:

• Sourcing environmentally responsible services and products locally, and purchasing organic, environmentally friendly- and recycled supplies, whenever possible.
• Purchasing fresh and sustainable foods locally grown, whenever possible.
• Creating partnerships with other organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to preserving the environment.
• Leading  associates to apply eco-friendly practices in their daily operations.
At the Vail Cascade Resort, we acknowledge that the Earth’s environment needs our genuine protection and care, and on this anniversary of Earth Day, we proclaim our continued dedication to the Destination Earth program,” stated Schoenfield.
