+Delta Hotels and Resorts® have been on a sustainability journey for almost five years, largely behind the scenes operationally at each location. Now the next evolution in Delta Greens™ has arrived and we’re honoured to be a part of bringing the environmental responsibility front and centre each time you check-in to a Delta Hotel!
Plant a tree. Spread the word. Make a difference by choosing GreenSTAY™ during your next visit.

Our partner, +The Carbon Farmer will plant a tree in your name when you decline daily housekeeping services during an extended stay. Watch your tree grow and share with others too.  Learn More: http://bit.ly/1AjxrSY #DeltaGreens   #sustainability

Wow!!! Thank you everyone for boosting our Boostr right from the get go! We've already gotten amazing support all over social media and in the all important pledges section! This demonstration of support for flood relief and green spaces has been amazing.
To celebrate our first milestone we're adding a fun new reward to the mix! Reginald Red Squirrel has been chattering in our forest for awhile now, but its time his friends got some recognition too! 
For a $39 pledge you can give one of our forest animals a new name! Moose and Lynx visit all of our public forests on createyourforest.ca, so this is a great opportunity to get your brand out there or just to have a little fun with alliteration! Moose and Lynx travel across our public forests as they grow, so users will see your named forest friend all over our site.
We'll also let them carry your logo (or profile picture), a link and a short blurb about you or your company in their pop-up box. They'll hold on to your name for an entire month, but after that I hear they get a bit forgetful. All content is subject to review and approval. 
Be sure to continue to get the word out about the campaign as well. We really appreciate every share and retweet sowing Bowness love on social media. Remember to tell your friends, family and coworkers that each $3.50 contribution counts, as it puts a seedling directly into the ground at Bowness Park.

Place your bets! Today is our sapling's official due date - do you think the arrival will happen today, or will the wait be like watching trees grow?

Radio Canada International has a great look at the push to preserve Canada's boreal forests with Dr. Jeff Wells, the senior scientist for the International Boreal Forest Campaign. Worth the 7 minutes to listen!

InformationIsBeautiful has a great new infographic detailing our history and future with carbon emissions, and what it could mean for the planet. Hopefully next time they'll add a carbon sequestration column as our combined efforts grab larger and larger amounts!
