Sheraton San Diego Officially Earns Green Seal Certification

Recently, Green Seal awarded its highest award certification: Gold level. After five months of preparation, a rigorous on-site audit followed by two months of follow-up and verification, they officially received the news on August 5th. This marks the first hotel in San Diego to achieve Gold status from Green Seal. At the time of their certification, there were only 97 hotels certified in 23 states and only 2 are at the gold level. The Sheraton San Diego is the largest Sheraton on the west coast to be certified.

Green Seal is a non-profit organization whose mission is to use science-based programs to empower customers, purchasers, and companies to create a more sustainable world. There are three levels of certification awarded: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Their standards focus on waste minimization, energy conservation and management, management of fresh water resources, waste water management, pollution prevention, and organizational commitment like environmentally sensitive purchasing.

This certification marks the Sheraton San Diego’s true commitment to sustainability. Congratulations!

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.
