Environmental Stewardship in America’s Most Beautiful Places
Students participate in an environmental education cruise on Lake Tahoe
Earth Week provides unique opportunities for ARAMARK to organize and participate in high-impact environmental activities while engaging and educating people in the communities where we live and work. Parks and Destinations’ Earth Week activities are as varied as the landscapes and natural features where they take place, but here is a selection from across the country:
- At Denali National Park in Alaska, ARAMARK is hosting its 2nd annual Trashin’ Fashion and Art Show, which encourages participants to create a fashion statement using trash or recycled objects. The event promotes environmental awareness within the Denali Borough and proceeds support the Denali School District’s sustainable efforts.
- Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas, located in Page, Arizona, hosts its 30th annual Page Attacks Trash event, during which up to 1,200 participants will come together to clean up the community. ARAMARK is also launching a year-round Page Attacks Trash initiative to help keep the region beautiful every day of the year.
- ARAMARK accounts in Washington’s Olympic Peninsula are hosting and participating in a variety of activities, ranging from highway and Pacific Coast beach cleanups to “Fun in Earth Education” presentations for middle school students. Lake Quinault Lodge guests can purchase Earth Day Volunteer Vacation packages that incorporate special programming and trail restoration activities. We are also co-sponsoring the Kalaloch (Lodge) Beach Clean-Up in partnership with the Washington State Coast Savers, Student Conservation Association (SCA) and the North Coast Marine Sanctuary.
- Earth Day at ARAMARK Lake Tahoe features a three-hour environmental education cruise for more than 350 fourth grade students from local community schools. During the cruise, students learn about the lives of trees, water conservation and the natural surroundings of Lake Tahoe.
