Disneyland hotels honored for environmental effortsby Leah Zanolla

Two of Disneyland's onsite hotels, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel, have been honored by the California Green Lodging program. This environmentalist certification is given to less than one percent of hotels in Orange County. To receive this distinction, hotels are audited on "water and energy conservation, waste minimization and recycling, and pollution prevention." The hotels at the Disneyland Resort excel in this, having come up with some interesting solutions to stay "green." Plastic hotel keys are recycled and used cooking oil is the fuel for many of the theme park's attractions. The hotels have joined with Clean the World Foundation to sanitize and repackage partially used soaps and toiletries into hygiene products that can be sent around the world to people in need.
