Green is King at Liki Tiki Village Resort!
Liki Tiki Village continues its green initiatives to protect the environment through reducing waste, reusing, recycling and conserving. The efforts have made the resort eligible for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) Florida Green Lodging program, which designates lodging facilities that commit to conserving and protecting Florida's natural resources.
Its guidelines allow the hospitality industry to evaluate operations, set goals and take specific actions to continuously improve environmental performance. Of our eight resorts in Florida, Barefoot'n Resort, Liki Tiki Village, Orbit One Vacation Villas, and Parkway International Resort, and Bryan's Spanish Cove, have already received program accreditation.
Program practices include water conservation measures through low flow plumbing fixtures, a linen reuse program, and energy efficiency achieved by installing ENERGY STAR® appliances and programmable thermostats. The waste reduction criteria are met by providing the opportunity to recycle, purchasing items in bulk, purchasing recycled materials and by recycling ink and toner cartridges. All designated properties must also use green cleaners and high efficiency air filters.
"The designation as members of the Florida Green Lodging Program reaffirms everything that our resorts are about," said IORHG President Sulyn Stumbras. "Our owners and guests can be proud that their vacation home resort is management with such attention to preserving the planet, as well as conserving, and keeping annual maintenance costs as low as possible for all our owners," she said. "Our conservation efforts are evident in our resorts' measures to reduce waste and conserve resources through green initiatives including eco-friendly cleaning supplies, energy efficient appliances, low-impact landscaping chemicals, and expansive recycling programs for everything from soda cans to old appliances."
At Liki Tiki Village, we recognize our responsibility to Florida and its populace to preserve, protect, and conserve our natural resources. We are seeking better ways to safeguard the environment in our corner of Kissimmee and Orlando.
