Western River Expeditions gets the green light… Okay, so it’s more of a blue-ish white light, but it’s also green. Our office headquarters in the foothills of the Wasatch mountains in Salt Lake City is now doing more to save the planet. We like to think big with something as small as a light bulb. Truth be told, it’s part of "the Western Way" to recognize that often its the little things that matter most.
When we do Colorado River raft trips, or on any of our great white water rafting in Utah or Idaho, we have always done what we can to preserve the environment. After all, each of these rivers are like our own. We live and work and play in them every year and want what’s best to protect and preserve those wondrous and even sacred places.
What else do we do specifically to help the environment? You can learn about our efforts to develop non-fossil fuel motor technology on our Guiding Green page. If you’ve been on a trip with us, you will have been part of a morning ritual of scouring the sands at each campsite to find micro trash that may have dropped by accident during our visit. Our guides teach about the riparian ecosystems and the preservation of fragile archeological ruins in desert and mountain environments.
Retro-fitting the light fixtures in our offices to be more energy efficient is just another way of doing what we can for the planet we all love.
