We are extremely pleased to announce our newest hotel partner, the beautiful Colcord Hotel located in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
The Colcord Hotel is the first Oklahoma hotel to partner with Clean the World after the state of Oklahoma became the first state to officially partner with Clean the World. Oklahoma’s ECO (Encouraging Conservation in Oklahoma) program was “created to promote, encourage and develop sustainable travel practices in Oklahoma. Through a dynamic partnership between the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department and the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, the ECO program offers the education, certification and marketing support businesses need to provide effective sustainable travel practices economically.” For more information, please see the entire program here: http://travelok.com/eco/index.asp
Clean the World is an ECO Advocate within the program. Through the partnership, spearheaded by our dear friend and champion Jessica Blackstock, Clean the World will continue to add hotel partners from the great and beautiful state of Oklahoma to our vital, planet and life saving recycling program!
I had the pleasure of staying a night at the Colcord Hotel while visiting the Oklahoma Tourism and ECO team immediately following my last visit to Haiti. This one of kind, boutique hotel, was originally built in 1910 and was previously a commercial building prior to its $16 million renovation and transformation to a hotel 3 years ago. When it was built, its 12 stories made it the first skyscraper in Oklahoma City.
I can personally attest to its elegance and beauty. The food is wonderful and the staff is extremely friendly. I had the pleasure of personally meeting Jeff Erwin, the Colcord Hotel’s General Manager. The hotel takes on the personality of its GM, as he is a vibrant, energetic, and professional hotelier, committed to Oklahoma’s environment and, as a member of the Clean the World hotel partner program, Saving Lives!
If you have a chance to visit Oklahoma City, we encourage you to book your hotel stay at the Colcord Hotel: http://www.colcordhotel.com/
