Harrah’s recognized for environmental policies

Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort earned recognition for reducing its environmental impact when Green Key Global bestowed it a 4-Key rating last month. 

The rating is based on the results of a comprehensive environmental self-assessment. Facilities can be awarded a rating from one to five keys, with five being the highest possible. 

According to Ray Rose, regional vice president of resort operations, Harrah’s reduced its laundry use by 9 percent, as measured by weight, during 2016. More recently, the resort launched a housekeeping opt-out program at both the Murphy and Cherokee locations. The program rewards guest with $20 of free slot play for opting out of housekeeping service, which then reduces linens and unnecessary cleaning.
