Resorts World New York City Raises Environmental Awareness During Earth Month and Beyond

Resorts World New York City’s (RWNYC) employees took part in several initiatives in celebration of Earth and National Volunteer Months, all aimed at making a positive impact on the planet.

April’s showers may have postponed RWNYC’s Shredding and E-Waste Disposal Day to May, but that didn’t stop members of the community from coming by on Saturday, May 6 to take part in this environmentally friendly event. They dropped off their old paper documents and electronic devices for disposal and recycling.

Our employees volunteered their time at the Queens Botanical Garden on Thursday, April 27, helping to beautify its Magnolia Walk by removing weeds and mulching. RWNYC is a longtime supporter of the Queens Botanical Garden and sponsors its annual “Rose Gala.”

Our guests see green anytime they hit the jackpot, but there’s also plenty of green behind the scenes, thanks to our resident plant moms and dads. They took to social media to show off their green thumbs, proving every day is Earth Day at RWNYC.

Members of the RWNYC team also took time out of their workday for a beautification project, planting new flowers next to the casino’s front entrance to honor Earth Day.

“Our employees don’t just work in Queens – many of them live here as well and take great pride in their community,” said Michelle Stoddart, Vice President of Community Development, Resorts World New York City. “That they’re so willing to volunteer so much of their own time to participate in these events says a lot about their commitment to the organizations and institutions located throughout the borough.”
