We hear about “Going Green” all the time. But what does it really mean? I head up RCI’s global team of associates who work to conserve resources and reduce our company’s carbon footprint. And I can tell you, no matter if you are a small household or a big company, a little effort and focus definitely goes a long way.
Here at RCI, we have installed energy-efficient lighting, motion detectors that automatically turn lights on and off, high-efficiency appliances, and low-flow water faucets and fixtures – all in 60 offices in 33 countries!
And it doesn’t stop there. Since 2008 we have been developing green versions of Endless Vacation® magazine and the RCI® Directory of Affiliated Resorts, printing all pages on Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper (this is paper created from trees that were grown and harvested for paper and printing purposes only).
In addition, you may have noticed that even though we are continually affiliating with more and more new resorts, the Directory isn’t as heavy as it was in the past. As part of our commitment to “Go Green,” we have reduced the amount of paper used in the Directory, but you can always turn to our online resort directory for resort information and pictures.
What ways do you “go green”? What tips do you have for other members to help them stay green while on their vacation?
