St. Pete Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2014 -- Many people do not put any thought into how the beach at St. Pete’s maintains its pristine condition given all of the visitors it sees every day. If left unattended, the beaches would become hazardous to beachgoers and the diverse marine life that inhabits the nearby waters. In an effort to maintain the beaches, Plaza Beach Resorts is proud to announce they host monthly beach cleanups. It is through efforts like this that make St. Pete’s the #1 beach destination in America.
The resorts hold these cleanups during the first Saturday of each month at 9am. They encourage guests and members of the community to join the owners, managers, and employees of Plaza Beach Resorts in their effort to maintain the natural beauty of the waterfront. The company provides those who turn out with trash bags, as well as trash grabbing tools to ensure the safety of the participants. Everyone will receive a bottle of water and a Plaza Beach hat as a special thanks for giving back to the community.
Along with these beach cleanups, the company works toward a greener tomorrow through other practices like waste reduction, energy and water conservation. One of the many green practices in place at the resorts is the use of soap dispensers in the rooms rather than the individual, one use bottles, to cut back on waste going to landfills.
With the extra steps the company takes to reduce their carbon footprint, it is easy to see why TripAdvisor has awarded them Gold Status Greenleader Awards for all three locations the past two years.
