Share |

1049680_42_b The Treasure Mountain Inn has taken hotel sustainability to a new level. Located on historic Main Street in Park City, Utah, this green hotel is an ideal lodging spot due to it’s proximity to Salt Lake City. The beautiful mountainous surroundings inspired Treasure Mountain Inn to embrace their role as stewards for the environment.

As of March, Treasure Mountain Inn has been 100 percent wind powered. This means that the hotel has purchased 781,200 KWH of wind power, the same as planting 41,025 trees or not driving 81 cars.

Featuring a plethora of other green amenities such as a lobby recycling center, the Treasure Mountain Inn is Utah’s only 100 percent carbon neutral hotel as well as EPA certified and a member of the Green Hotels Association. The inn also donates a minimum of 1 percent of its annual sales to fund organizations working to conserve and protect natural resources.  Looks like Treasure Mountain Inn has set the bar high in the sustainable hotel industry.
