Sun N Fun RV Resort

As a green business partner, SUN-N-FUN RV Resort is going above and beyond to make a positive impact on our community. From a green building perspective, they have made a commitment to have two USGBC LEED certified buildings. The housekeeping building is recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council as a LEED silver facility and the recreation center is recognized as a LEED gold facility. SUN-N-FUN is committed to recycling programs and waste reduction.' One of their major challenges was to create a recycling program for all of our guests and residents at the resort. Through engagement and encouragement efforts, we were able to design a program that was easy for all guests to participate in. We also recycling and promote the recycling of used oils, paints, batteries, electronics, light bulbs, as well as donate unwanted items to local charities when possible.

By completing a comprehensive energy audit, SUN-N-FUN looks to reduce our footprint and address future projects related to energy reduction. Capital projects include a geothermal energy capture system for dehumidification and pool heating, variable speed air conditioning units, and an energy efficient community room. Additionally, daylights sensors, automatically dimming lights, solar tube lights have been installed throughout the resort. SUN-N-FUN is focused on protecting our water resources. The resort is designed to use landscaping that relies predominantly on rainfall. By using Florida native, low-maintenance plants, we have reduced the need for irrigation. We have discontinued watering by 80%, only front gate and lawn bowling area irrigated. We have a rain capture and harvesting system is used in toilet facilities throughout the resort. Additionally, we encourage guests and residents to be conscience of water conservation measures.

SUN-N-FUN supports our community through a number of initiatives. Annually the team at Sun-N-Fun donates over 1,000 hours volunteering. Just one look at their website community section and you will see the projects they are involved with. They recently become to first business to be recognized by the Sarasota County Fire department for outstanding service.
