See what a difference a night can make!
37.2 gallons is 596 cups, enough for 1 person to drink almost 2 cups per day for a year.
That's enough to run an Energy Star-rated laptop for 10 hours.
Save Natural Gas
Enough energy to heat a 400 square foot room at 70°F for 4 hours - when it's 10°F outside.
Fewer chemicals equals less toxicity in the environment. And that's good for everyone.

At the Sheraton Memphis Downtown we are committed to positively impacting our enviornment. Here are some of the ways we focus on material waste reduction:
- Reuse of guest room keys
- Guest room recycle bins to capture recyclables from guest rooms and divert waste from the landfill
- Guestroom amenities, shampoo and conditioner, are produced in plastic bottles made of recycled materials
- We offer paperless check-out through eFolio & our video checkout and folio review is available via the guestroom television
- All discarded terry linen is repurposed for rags for engineering
- Recycling trash bins at each hotel entrance
- All discarded sheets are donated to schools, homeless shelters and other organizations
- Participation in Clean The World - a soap recycling program in which the hotel donates our lightly used soaps & bottled guest amenities for recycling, sanitation, and re-distribution to children and families in need. Clean The World is the largest global recycler of hotel amenities and has distributed more than 22 million bars of soap to children and families in 96 countries worldwide. This has diverted over 3,370 tons of hotel waste from polluting landfills in North America!
