Much of the work we do goes unnoticed, but there’s certainly a great deal of satisfaction when we help improve existing furniture and get recognized for it, especially in some of the most beautiful locations around America which we’ve highlighted in previous blog posts.
Throughout our travels we have come across various members of the hospitality industry whose management decided to improve sustainability and provide a healthier environment for all around them, while upgrading the aesthetic appeal of their property. Unfortunately, not all of these projects get the recognition they deserve for making the effort to improve our surroundings.
To help acknowledge those who have demonstrated a commitment to implementing environmentally-friendly practices that reduce their carbon footprint and minimize landfill waste, The Refinishing Touch launched its Rewards Program in 2010. This program is designed to award sustainability in the hospitality industry, and we are proud to have honored over 30 recipients with awards in the program’s first year. The last quarter of 2010 alone saw 12 new recipients.
Examples of projects that earned this recognition varied. From armoire modification at the Crowne Plaza in San Antonio, TX to furniture refinishing done at a Hampton Inn in Kokomo, Indiana, we recognize the hotel and the members of its staff who are committed to improving our environment. A continually updated list of recipients can be found on the front page of our website: www.therefinishingtouch.com.
We congratulate past winners and look forward to handing out more awards to worthy members of the hospitality industry in the near future.
