In honor of Earth Day, Couples Resorts is organizing an effort among its four properties, all Green Globe certified and located in Negril and Ocho Rios, to become Jamaica's most eco-friendly resorts. As part of that effort, Couples Resorts launched its new Earth Day Web site today, which offers great green tips such as organic recipes, as well as information about its green practices. In addition, all four properties are implementing programs which include volunteer activities for guests, spa treatments using local and organic materials and exciting shows and activities designed to raise awareness and reduce the resorts' impact on the environment.

"We at Couples Resorts value our properties' diverse environments and strive to responsibly incorporate them into our mission of creating the most romantic place in the world," said Randy Russell, Chief Romance Officer of Couples Resorts. "We have always, and will always, do whatever we can to preserve the beautiful Jamaican jungle and azure Caribbean Sea that help to create the passion and romance Couples Resorts is known for."

Education projects such as mandatory reef protection for all those participating in water sports, and the use of only recyclable glass, cardboard and plastics have already been implemented by environmental managers employed by each Couples Resorts property. The use of environmentally friendly cleaning products, energy efficient air conditioners and light bulbs, as well as low flow toilets, showerheads and taps helps to reduce the amount of energy and greenhouse gases used.
