Earth Month may be over, but that doesn’t mean you should stop considering sustainable travel practices. Marriott International’s resorts across the world offer a commitment to sustainability. Check out these eco-conscious Marriott properties in the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Brazil.

Costa Rica Marriott Hotel Hacienda Belen and Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort

These sister properties are part of Marriott’s Serve 360 program. The initiative follows four pillars: nurturing the world, having sustainably responsible operations, empowerment through opportunities and the philosophy of welcoming everyone, along with the promotion of human rights. The properties offer education and career opportunities to the local communities, including a trade skill training program for vulnerable youth ages 15–24, a hotel training program for individuals with disabilities and training programs for women.

Renaissance São Paulo Hotel

The São Paulo property boasts a successful recycling program, aimed at reducing food waste. The hotel is home to a food bio-digester, which separates organic waste from non-reusable materials, thus maximizing compostable materials.

St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino

The property commits to lowering its footprint on St. Kitts by repurposing a common type of seaweed found on the island. The resort partners with the Ocean Foundation and a local farm to collect and redistribute the invasive seaweed as a fertilizer around the property and on the farm.
