You see a lot of companies talking about what they’re doing to cut back on wasteful and hazardous practices that affect the environment adversely. It’s an important conversation for any business to start. It’s been shown that the green materials market increased to $116 billion this year and is projected to double up to $254 billion in 2020. However, it’s unlikely that we’ll reach these numbers if businesses and homeowners can’t work together to spread a culture of conservation. There are a lot of industries out there looking at the company’s practices and trying to make the right choices for a better future.
Over 120,000 guest rooms are available in Las Vegas. It’s a little oasis in the desert of Nevada, but it’s one of the most renowned places to visit if you love gambling, entertainment and lots of wedding chapels. The Las Vegas Palazzo Hotel and Resort isn’t so different from many hotels on the outside. However, this hotel changed a lot of its policies and procedures in order to conserve waste, water and energy. One thing that the hotel did was changing its policy towards watering its landscapes. The hotel now has several outdoor areas completely made of artificial turf grass, and they use a drip irrigation system with moisture sensors to water the rest of the lawns and gardens. This has reduced water waste by eight million gallons per year and the hotel was recently named the Most Eco-Friendly Hotel in America.
In homes all across the country, water waste is a problem. Whether you take long showers, leave the water running or use wasteful sprinklers, you can do a few things to cut back on your water waste. Installing drip irrigation systems has become an easy project for any homeowners. There are kits designed to make it easy to replace sprinkler systems. You can also reuse gray water from showers, tubs and washer machines in order to water lawns and gardens.
Skylights became a popular trend in the 1970s, but it has to become a green trend in homes and businesses. With skylights, you have a natural light and heat source for many parts of your home. Businesses have utilized this architecture technique for guest rooms and common areas. Hotels are also changing the way that they heat their pools. They are using solar panels instead to heat up hot tubs and pools. This technology has also been seen in homes across the United States. High efficiency windows, sunrooms and skylights can greatly contribute to a home’s energy conservation plan and also work for office buildings as well.
It is important that these trends continue. With new facilities continuing to be built such as the new Las Vegas hotels, the innovation will continue in the industry. This innovation will result in newer and more efficient products coming to the market for both businesses as well as homes.
