Water is a precious resource, especially in Nevada. Circus Circus has implemented a towel and linen reuse program in all hotel rooms with information available in each room. This reportedly will result in fewer laundry loads, which will conserve water.
Into 2014, the company continues to replace casino lighting to more efficient LED lights. They have converted the majority of their restaurant and retail shop lighting to the more efficient MR16LED light, which uses less electricity. They have recently installed two electric car charging stations in the North Parking Garage. These stations are being used by customers almost daily, and plans for a compost program in restaurant kitchens is in motion.
Circus Circus commends their Green Team for spearheading conservation plans. For more information on Circus Circus’s sustainability efforts, visit their webpage. Use #CircusIsGreen for suggestions.
