Cardboard and cooking oil are two products that we go through in a big-way here at Zion Ponderosa. It took some research to identify just how much we were using, but once we got a handle on it, we also devised a plan for disposing of it more effectively. Read more about our efforts here.
At Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort, we wanted to enhance our ability to be more environmentally friendly ( Go Green ), and to reduce our carbon footprint. To accomplish this our General Manager, Michael Kane, hired a Masters student from the University of Utah as an intern, to analyze our entire conservation effort and to develop a more robust plan. See what we accomplished by reading our Going Green – Press Release.
We also established an organic garden to decrease on the amount of food that is delivered to our resort, thus decreasing the carbon footprint of delivery vehicles. Our future plans also include greater efforts to recycle plastic, aluminum and other resources. Read more.
