Preserving Nature, Empowering Guests: Introducing the Yosemite Water Conservation Pledge

Preserving Nature, Empowering Guests: Introducing the Yosemite Water Conservation Pledge

At Aramark Destinations, environmental stewardship is at the core of our operations. We are deeply committed to preserving and protecting our cherished National Parks. From sourcing local products to waste reduction and embracing compostables, we ingrain sustainability into everything we do. In our quest for constant improvement, we have launched the Yosemite Water Conservation Pledge, a comprehensive initiative focused on raising awareness among our guests, fostering commitment extending beyond Yosemite, and positively impacting our planet.

The Yosemite Water Pledge

Our Yosemite Water Pledge engages our multi-night overnight guests in water conservation efforts. By encouraging simple yet impactful actions, we empower our guests to contribute to the preservation of this natural wonder and beyond. The pledge encourages guests to make a commitment during their stay to shorten showers, as keeping showers under five minutes can save up to 1,000 gallons of water per month, as well as forgo housekeeping services during their stay and commit to using a reusable water bottle while visiting. Since its launch on February 1st, 2023, the Yosemite Water Pledge has garnered immense support from our guests. We are delighted to witness hundreds of guests who have enthusiastically committed to the pledge, demonstrating their dedication to responsible water usage and environmental sustainability.

Sustainability is Rewarding

In line with our commitment to environmental stewardship and reducing plastic waste, we are excited to provide incentives for sustainable choices. Multi-night guests who choose to forgo housekeeping services during their stay will receive a 50% discount on a Klean Kanteen available at our retail locations. This initiative encourages guests to utilize our water bottle filling stations and reduce their reliance on single-use bottles. By making this choice, guests actively participate in our journey toward achieving our zero-waste goals and contributing to a healthier planet.

Join the Movement

We invite all our guests to join us in the Yosemite Water Pledge and be part of a collective effort to protect our natural resources. By adopting water-saving practices and embracing sustainable alternatives, we can make a significant difference in preserving the beauty and integrity of our environment.
