Greystone Hotels to donate a portion of brand-wide Earth Day rooms revenue to 1% For The Planet

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (April 15, 2019) - In celebration of the 49th annual Earth Day on April 22, San Francisco-based Greystone Hotels will continue its support of environmental conservancy through donations and volunteer work. Greystone's 11 California and Oregon-based properties will donate a portion of profits from gross rooms revenue on April 22 to 1% For The Planet, an organization committed to environmental conservancy and sustainability.

"As an eco-friendly hospitality management company, we're always looking to encourage and implement new and effective environmentally friendly practices at our properties. We are proud of our annual commitment and will celebrate Earth Day this year with a donation to 1% For The Planet, as well as our employee Day of Service opportunities to actively support and better our local communities."
