Environmental conservation is an important element of Lodge On The Desert’s mission and vision. The hotel embraces green practices across all departments, acknowledging that environmentally-friendly initiatives are responsible as well as economically beneficial.

Food & Beverage

  • Food sourced from local growers
  • Organic foods purchased whenever feasible
  • Sustainable seafoods
  • Use of Tru-Vodka — a complete circle of recycled packaging, recycled glass and labels
  • Eco-conscious cleaning products
  • Wine on tap eliminates bottles, labels, and corks
  • Bulk packaged whole bean coffee

Catering, Events & Meetings

Suggested to clients for consideration are:

  • White boards in favor of flipcharts
  • When flipcharts are used, suggest high post-consumer content paper
  • Water pitchers rather than individual water bottles
  • For breaks — natural and bulk foods that minimize packaging waste
  • Catering office – uses one section of lighting in the office, email folders to save documents rather than printing emails
  • Lights and computers turned off when leaving the office
  • Recycled office paper used for internal communication


  • Eco-conscious cleaning products throughout property, including laundry
  • 100% recycled and 80% post-consumer public area and guestroom paper products
  • Green stays for guests include offering water saving options for sheets and towels
  • Recycle program for guestroom magazines
  • CFL lighting in most areas
  • Low-flow toilets and showerheads
Featured in all Lodge On The Desert guestrooms are William Roam bath products. All products in The Roam Collection contain a unique blend of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals and are American made. All packaging has been sensibly produced with post-consumer resin and cartons are made from 100% recycled paper.


  • Paperless guest check-in/check-outs
  • Refurbished toners and recycled office paper
  • Sales and Marketing’s salute to sustainability comes through its use of paperless, online promotional sales tools such as eMeetings & Events Guide and Weddings eBrochure. Once paper-trail staples, no more!
