The Landmark Resort in Egg Harbor just completed phase one of their mattress replacement plan, which included replacing 300 mattresses, and Rachel Santy, Landmark Resort’s Executive Housekeeper, took charge of the disbursement of the gently-used mattresses, keeping them out of landfills.
Santy worked with non-profit organizations and individuals to place all of the 300 mattresses. Freedom House in Green Bay was one of the recipients; they took five bunk beds from the Landmark dorm, along with 10 mattresses. My House was another non-profit to benefit from the mattress purchase; taking six bunk beds and 12 mattresses.
“We have been operating the resort in an earth-friendly, environmentally-conscious way for years,” says Patti Taylor, General Manager. “We are pleased to have earned the Travel Green Wisconsin certification last year, and the effort to recycle the mattresses is consistent with our vision to conserve, renew, recycle and make decisions based on the potential environmental impact.”
The resort is planning to replace 100 mattresses next year. This two-phase approach helped the resort manage cash flow, as the resort ordered more than $250,000 worth of product at once.
The Landmark Resort is located at 4929 Landmark Drive in Egg Harbor.
