RV Resort Joins California Green Business Network

Chef’s garden

When thinking about resorts leading in sustainability, you don’t often think about RV resorts but there are some with very green stories to tell—the Golden Village Palms RV Resort in the San Jacinta Valley in California, for example. The property has been certified as the only RV resort within the California Green Business Network.

Golden Village Palms Green Practices

  • The use of energy efficient lighting.
  • The use of certified non-toxic laundry, cleaning and building maintenance products in non-aerosol containers to reduce pollution.
  • The donation of previously used furniture, supplies and materials to local nonprofit organizations for waste diversion.
  • The placement of recycling bins next to trash bins in public spaces.
  • The training of staff regarding proper sorting for recycling and composting.
  • The control of air conditioning and heating in public spaces through occupancy sensors or key cards to conserve energy.
  • The use of low-flush toilets to conserve water.
  • The introduction of a chef’s garden where herbs and vegetables are grown on property; this reduces the radius of the resort’s shopping cart for food supplies.

Air Purifiers

In February 2022, Golden Village Palms partnered with Molekule to install its state-of-the-art air purifiers at the resort. Molekule employs innovative PECO technology that uses free radicals—the same radicals used to destroy cancer cells—to break down pollutants at a molecular level. These pollutants include viruses, bacteria, mold, allergens, and chemicals. By using nanotechnology, PECO can destroy pollutants 1,000 times smaller than the standard filters that qualify as HEPA filters.

Golden Village Palms RV Resort was recently named as a finalist in the “Park of the Year” awards competition presented by The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC).

“We’re very excited to be part of the California Green Business Network,” says James Lim, Vice President of Sunland RV Resorts. “We hope that our participation will encourage other outdoor hospitality brands to join the movement for a healthier planet.”
