I am so excited that the hubby and I are planning a night away from the kids and going to the great Kalahari resort in Wisconsin Dells. Its going to be a much needed time away with him. I LOVE HIM and it will be great to get away with out my kids, I do love them but mommy and daddy need some mommy and daddy time.
One of the neat things that I think the Kalahari is leading the hotel industry in would be their green initiative. Here are some of the neat things they are doing to help our environment:
1. They have a partnership with Clean the World to recycle soap and shampoo products and donating them to impoverished people, which is helping to prevent millions of deaths caused by hygiene related illness every day.
2. Their lights are advanced and leading with their energy saving fluorescent light bulbs, motion sensor lights in public areas, low-flow dishwasher spray heads, digital thermostats in guest rooms, low water consumption in the water parks, lower heating costs in the water park by installation of massive fans that push warm air to floor.
3. The roof top uses solar panels which heat more than 50% of the hot water for the resorts facilities.
A big thank-you to the Kalahari for creating such a great facility that is staying GREEN.
