Ibis Go-Green Initiatives
The Club at Ibis takes pride in many Go Green initiatives to reduce our environmental impact. With the Club sitting on some of the most beautiful natural landscape in south Florida, it’s easy to see why it’s worth protecting the environment.
The Club’s Go Green initiatives include:
- The removal of Styrofoam cups throughout the entire Club and replacing them with clear plastic, a recyclable product.
- The implementation of a single-stream recycling compactor in which all paper, plastic, metals, and other containers are properly processed and sorted.
- The installation of a Liquid Food Composter, which converts food waste into grey water that is then safely disposed into the municipal sewer systems and carried to the local wastewater treatment facilities to be recovered.
- Reducing water waste by not pre-filling water glasses at our dining venues.
- Upgrading to Eco-Products PLA straws made with 100% renewable resources and completely compostable. Straws only distributed upon request.
- The installation of Hydration Stations on the golf courses rather than plastic water bottle distribution.
