La Costa Resort and Spa Awarded Green Seal's Silver Distinction

May 29, 2013

La Costa Resort and Spa has earned Green Seal’s Silver Distinction, in recognition of recent improvements to property and operational systems aimed at conserving resources.

In 2011, La Costa received the Bronze distinction from Green Seal’s environmental certification program. In order to earn Silver, La Costa had to meet the next level’s criteria within three years of receiving the Bronze ranking. Categories for improvement included waste minimization, energy efficiency, fresh water management, waste water management, and implementing a purchasing policy that was environmentally and socially sensitive.

To meet the criteria for the Silver distinction, La Costa installed two liquid ozone machines, which create a cleaning solution more effective than bleach. Eliminating the need for chemical cleaners, the ozone is infused into the water, which is then used by housekeeping throughout the property. 

The resort’s food and beverage services also began utilizing an eCorrect Food Waste Decomposition System, which dehydrates food waste to produce soil suitable for the golf course and in-hotel plant and flowerbeds.

Says Paul McCormick, vice president and general manager of La Costa Resort and Spa: “The team at La Costa is dedicated to protecting our natural resources and we constantly re-evaluate our systems to ensure the resort is as environmentally friendly as possible. Our guests know when they come to La Costa they can feel good about their choice of accommodations.”
