Behind the scenes tours are always captivating. Now the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta is offering your meeting attendees a Green Tour, a look at how the convention hotel maintains its Green Seal Silver Level certification. The hotel is hosting the Green Meeting Industry Council's annual Sustainable Meetings Conference, June 17-19.

Tour highlights:
• At the loading dock, hear about the $13 million environmental upgrade to the property’s central plant that increased heating and cooling efficiency and provided a more sustainable process for water flow and water recycling.
• See the hotel’s “one-stream” recycling system for cardboard, paper, plastics, aluminum, and glass. Operating 24/7, this system recycles an average of 450,000 pounds of material each year.
• In the kitchen, listen to Executive Chef Russell Sleight talk about working with local farmers and vendors to sourc ingredients.
• Learn about the hotel’s no-Styrofoam policy, and its requirement that vendors deliver food in biodegradable or recyclable containers and packaging.
