Sunriver Resort Report


Did you know?  Only two manmade structures on Earth are large enough to be seen from outer space: the Great Wall of China and the Fresh Kills Landfill in New York.  In 1979, there were an estimated 18,500 landfills in the nation.  In 1990 there were only about 6,300, and by 1995 it was estimated that only about 3,000 would still be open.  In just 16 years the number of landfills dropped by 84%. During that same time there was an 80% increase in the amount of trash generated.  Seventy percent of U.S. municipal solid waste gets buried in landfills.  U.S. landfills are closing at the rate of 1 per day.[www.cleanair.org]

Sunriver Resort, part of the Destination Hotels & Resorts collection of properties, is doing their part in diverting plastic from landfills.  When you check-in at Sunriver, you are given a room key made from BioPVC, a completely biodegradable material.  Unlike regular PVC cards that remain structurally-intact for decades, and therefore add to our growing landfills, Sunriver’s new room keys are biodegradable. These environmentally-friendly magnetic stripe cards degrade in nine months to five years of exposure to microorganisms compared to standard PVC cards which take decades to biodegrade.  [www.idzone.com]
