green-america-seal-of-approvalBox Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs is thrilled to announce it has been awarded the Green  America Business Seal of Approval. The seal is presented to businesses that go beyond product and service quality to set the highest standards in environmental sustainability and social justice, and work to solve, rather than create, environmental and social problems.

To be considered for the Seal of Approval and earn a listing in the annual National Green Pages™, businesses complete a rigorous screening process to ensure they meet Green America’s standards for the environment, community and labor.

Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs is known for its unique natural hot springs hot tubs which are terraced on the mountainside, and guests love these natural hot springs.  But, this Ouray Colorado hotel also uses their geothermal resources to heat their domestic water supply and to heat the entire property.  The Box Canyon Lodge shows exemplary concern and corporate practices for people and planet; they recycle, work with environmentally conscious suppliers, and listen to their workers.

“We are over the top excited to earn this coveted Seal of Approval,” said Karen Avery, owner of the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs. “It’s one of the most respected and recognized symbols in the green marketplace and a powerful way to set our Ouray CO hotel apart as a leading green hotel.”

Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs is now an Approved member of the Green Business Network, a distinguished and celebrated group of companies that use their products and services as a vehicle for social and environmental change.
