Green Initiatives

We have been committed to excellence and customer service since the original Little America opened in 1934. In an effort to maintain our high level of quality and service we have implemented the following environmental procedures and green initiatives.

Energy Use

In-room auto-adjusted thermostats recognize, through our property management system, when rooms are vacant and adjust the temperature to 68˚F to conserve energy.

We use energy-efficient lighting on our entire ten-acre property.

All commercial appliances and HVAC units are Energy Star appliances.

A reusable amenity program is available upon guests’ request.

We have received the highest level of energy conservation initiative rebates from Rocky Mountain Power since 2003. This is currently 80% of kilowatts per hour saved.

All holiday lights are energy-efficient LED lights.

Waste Management

We utilize a commercial grade trash compacting program to minimize our contribution to landfill space.

Our offices and business center have established a paper recycling program.

By using glass, china, linen table clothes and napkins in guest rooms, banquet facilities and restaurants the Little America Hotel is able to minimize paper waste.

All restaurant and banquet facilities use reusable condiment dishes, allowing for less waste of plastic or glass containers and food.

We do not use Styrofoam in any part of the hotel.

Water Conservation

All public area restrooms are equipped with sensor faucets and toilets, minimizing water flow.

Low flow in-room showerheads (2.5 gallons per minute) were installed in February 2008.

Reusable room linen program is available upon guests’ request.

Our on-site laundry facility allows us to monitor and control water usage.

Environmentally Preferred Cleaning Supplies

Cleaning supplies are purchased from Eco-Logic Solutions. Supplies are biodegradable and reduce the environmental impact that standard chemicals produce.

Other Earth-Friendly Measures

Our sales and catering staff will customize events to fit our client’s environmental needs.

Our paint shop uses biodegradable paint.

Our floral arrangements in the lobby are rearranged and brought to nursing homes by volunteers.

Some departments have gone to a 4-day work week to save on energy costs and reduce pollution and fuel use.

The front desk has reduced paper and toner usage by half by no longer requiring guests to sign two receipts.
