Tropical Beach Resort

Tropical Beach Resorts is a 70-room resort located on a beautiful and sensitive ecosystem, Siesta Key. They have implemented a number of energy measures, such as installing low-energy lighting, programmable thermostats, and ensuring all new appliances are Energy Star-qualified. Their recycling program is comprehensive, and thought has been given to ensuring recycling receptacles are conveniently placed for their guests.

As Florida Water Champs, Tropical Beach Resorts recognizes their environmental obligation to conserve water, and have instituted a Linen Reuse program, low-flow faucets and toilets, and have ensured that their landscaping is "Florida-Friendly." Tropical Beach Resorts lives up to the commitments they made in their Green Business policy statement to grow in a way that protects the environment.

According the resort ownership, the Green Business Partnership has helped the resort in more ways than they realized when they first became members. Initially they were looking for ways to save money by obtaining expert assistance. They did not consider the collaborative collateral effort it would have on their team and guests. Seeing guests more conscious about recycling, reusing their towels and being less wasteful with disposable products have all been inspired by the Green Business Partnership. The resort's team is far more conscious about recycling, and even small things like everyone using water tumblers and carrying reusable totes at work have become uniform. The resort has become more engaged in protecting the island, and is committed to the reduction of energy use. This not only has helped reduce expenses and strengthened their reputation, but employees have seen the concept of being green carrying into their personal lives.
