The Venetian Resort Las Vegas Commemorates Earth Day on April 22

WHAT:
The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas and Sands® Expo will turn exterior marquee signs green to recognize Earth Day on Monday, April 22.
The property has a long history of committing to environmental conservation with The Palazzo being the first resort property in Las Vegas to achieve LEED Silver Certification for New Construction in 2008 and The Venetian and Sands Expo holding the distinction of being the only existing buildings in Las Vegas to achievedLEED Gold Certification for Existing Buildings. Additional efforts made daily by the property include:
  • One of the largest roof-top solar-thermal systems in the US can be found on property and is used to provide hot water for swimming pools and spas.
  • The company saves more than 50 million gallons of water through the campus’s innovative cooling tower technology.
  • The campus also saves more than 22 million gallons of potable water each year using the nano-filtration water system which is used for irrigation which allows the campus to be completely “off the water grid” for horticultural needs at the resort.
  • While guests sleep overnight, team members at The Venetian Resort sort the trash for items that can be recycled. While the statewide recycling average for Nevada is about 22 percent, nearly 55 percent of trash at The Venetian Resort is diverted from landfills.
  • More than 31,500 pounds of soap and bottled amenities are donated every year to a local non-profit, Clean the World. These items, which would otherwise end up in local landfills, are used to build hygiene kits that are distributed to kids and families worldwide.
