On Friday, April 22, team members from The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas celebrated Earth Day at Freedom Park with a tree planting and park cleanup, held in partnership with Outside Las Vegas Foundation and the City of Las Vegas.
Team members from The Venetian and The Palazzo participated in the Earth Day event by planting trees and bushes and assisting in digging an irrigation trench that will water the new plants. In addition, the team members also contributed by cleaning up trash around the park.
To commemorate Earth Day, team members were provided with t-shirts that were made from recycled materials and were given potted plants to take home to spread this initiative beyond the resort and into the Las Vegas community. To further promote Earth Day, the signs on The Venetian and The Palazzo will be illuminated green on Friday, April 22.
