Xanterra Leading Ohio State Park Lodges Down Road to Sustainability


CAMBRIDGE, OHIO—On a day very soon Ohio State Park Lodges will be buying most of the food served in its restaurants from sustainable sources, generating zero hazardous waste and significantly decreasing greenhouse gas emissions. At least that is the goal for five Ohio State Park Lodges operated by concessioner Xanterra Parks & Resorts. “Our sustainability practices permeate every aspect of our operations—rooms, restaurants, gift shops, swimming pools, marinas—you name it, and as new technologies and products become available, we take a fresh look at what we are doing to see if we can improve upon it,” said Greg Woodland, regional manager of Ohio State Park Lodges and Punderson State Park Lodge in northeast Ohio near Newbury, Ohio. “And although we have made significant progress over a period of many years, we know there are always more improvements to be made. We take our mission of providing legacy hospitality with a softer footprint very seriously.” An example of Xanterra’s expanding sustainability strategies can be found in the five lodges.
